Found it very impressive & we were in awe of the history and personal testaments of people who went through the camp. Parking is no problem

Dear Mr & Mrs, Thank you for your visit and your review. Unfortunately not all texts are in English as well; we are working on a multi-lingual audio-guide which will be ready in August! At the time when Camp Vught National Memorial was opened, it was not expected to receive so many foreign visitors. If you visited barrack 1B, you... More

I rode a bicycle from 's'Hergotenbosch using route 24. Easy trip there. This was the only SS operated concentration camp in the Netherlands. Until today, I was not aware of it, it was good to visit.

Thank you for your visit, the 'Vincent van Gogh'-route is very attractive indeed. We hope you also visited Barrack 1B (halfway down the Lunettenlaan), it is an authentic camp barrack with all texts in English (contrary to our memorial centre, we are working on an audiotour right now), open Wednesday-Saturday-Sunday 12-17 and extra during holidays. We wish you a good... More

Kamp Vught is the site of a former Nazi forced labour camp, part recreation, part original buildings. The first part of the visit is to a multi media room with information about the purpose and historical context of the formation of this camp and its relation to both other forced labour camps and the Eastern extermination camps. As well as... More

The museum mainly presents the situation of the concentration camp built by Nazi during the second world war in Vught. Sad and horrible stories bring the visitors to the imagination how the crime of humanity took place there during the second world war. Part of the infrastructures of the camp is reconstructed, thus enables one to experience the situation there... More

A 15 min drive from Eindhoven, Kamp Vught story was discovered while we were visiting the Philips Museum during the weekend. It has the entire infrastructure rebuild as original of the only Concentration Camp build by the Nazis in the Netherlands, that used the old state prison as foot print. A true testimony of the Holocaust against the Jews, it... More

We went here as a young couple visiting Amsterdam, I get as we were so close to a concentration camp visiting one should really be done. Getting here from Amsterdam was very easy just one train and then a small mini bus straight to the camp, I expected more remains and it to be bigger but when you've seen one... More

Dear Bobby, thank you for your report, we are working on a multilangual information in the main building. I hope you also visited 'barak 1B', the last remaining camp barrack with a permanent exhibition, in Dutch and English concerning camp Vught during and also after WW2. With kind regards, Camp Vught National Memorial. More

Went there and was just speechless. In WW2, so many people were taken to german camps. This is one of them, and it is close to my home. Never took time to go there until "That day"... Got really emotional from the stories the guide told us, and left there speechless. If you are interested in history, especially WW2 and... More

Before leaving we had researched this monument and knew that we would visit. I emailed them and they booked us an English tour on a date and time that we would be visiting. This was an excellent choice. It cost us a bit more but our group of six had an excellent guide who gave us a tour worth twice... More

Camp Vught is the closest Concentration Camp to visit, the change to get in is not cheap at 6 Euro's per person but is free the 1st Wednesday of each month. A small taster of how horrific these camps were but as a late addition and mainly a transit camp doesn't have the history of some of the other more... More

Dear Steve, thank you for your visit. I hope you were also able to visit barak 1B, located halfway down the street, with the restored camp barrack and a multilingual exhibit concerning Camp Vught during and after the war. This is a good combination, however it is not always open to public (holidays most days, in general Wednesday-Saturday-Sundag 12-17). More

This was the first camp I'd been too and although it was very informative and well designed I found lack of English translation a little frustrating. When I say designed I mean that most of the camp has been knocked down and rebuilt as a tourist centre. So it wasn't as harrowing as I'd expected but maybe that's not to... More

Dear Ell1981London Thank your for your message. Camp Vught National Memorial is meant to be a memorial centre and I agree with you it is not as horrific as at that time, since it is reconstructed and above all: we cannot imagine or reconstruct exactly, since we live in freedom!
