A concentration camp visit is a must for all who love their fellow man. Hopefully it serves to remind us all of what we never want to happen again. We cannot, nor should not, change history, but we should all learn from it. Its difficult to imagine the horrors when walking round on a hot sunny day with the birds... More

It would be a mistake to visit Germany and ignore its dark history. From the beginning to the end of our tour, Jared raised the bar of both intellectualism and spirituality about this experience at the "model" concentration camp. His narrative weaved the actual and the figurative forcing all of us to examine with seriousness this place and time. The... More

This tour takes approximately 6 hours, half the time is taken up with travelling to and fro. Very informative and worthwhile doing. You meet at The Hackescher Market, travel there by train under the supervision of the Guide. Train tickets can be bought from a kiosk that the Guide will point out to you. After, you can look out for... More

A visit to Germany and Eastern Europe is really not complete without a visit to a concentration camp. No, it's not a thrilling tourist attraction but it is our world history. Travel should educate as well as entertain. The train on an ABC train pass goes there and then you can take a bus (which runs rarely) or walk an... More

We travelled to Berlin Germany in September and part of our experience we chose the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. The tour was more than we could have expected and we contributed that to our tour guide Jared. He was so informative and took the time and care to explain details I doubt we would have gotten with anyone else. He was... More

We got the train from Berlin which didn't take too long and all using our ABC train ticket. We had a couple of changes which were no bother and then when we got to Sachsenhausen train station we walked for 10 minutes (using google maps) and easily found an entrance to the camp which you buzz and the gate opens....

Yes, you could easily do this on your own. It's an easy train ride up to Oranienburg and then a 15-ish minute walk from there. However, I think you'd miss out on a lot without a tour guide to really fill in the story of the camp and what went on there. There's a lot to learn. I went with... More

It doesn't feel right to say we enjoyed this visit but I can honestly say that this was one of the most moving experiences I have had. The stories and evidence at the site take you back to one of the most depraved regimes in modern history. It is so difficult to believe that this actually can, and did, happen.... More
