If you are staying in Berlin and you are interested of history, this place is definitely for you. I've been visiting other concentration camps in Poland, Czech and Germany but this was again something a bit different. The area is large so if there's a lot of people you can still explore every sight peacefully.

I don't have words to describe how this tour made us feel. It was one of the most eyeopening experiences we've (my wife and I) ever had. Our tour guide (Cesar) did such a great job of pulling us into the experiences that occurred within the concentration camp. He was so knowledgeable and knew so many details making this experience...

The visit to the concentration camp is unique, deep, and probably would you very sad. But, is a must see place because we need to know our past to avoid make the same mistakes. The place can be reached trough the same train station that other times bring the jews to the camp, and then, you can walk around 20... More

We visited this site on our recent trip to Berlin, Our guide was part of the Free Walking Berlin Tours, Her name was Kathryn Evans, an exceptional guide who was so sensitive to the site and all that had happened there. For most people this is a tour not to be missed. Only visiting such a camp can you appreciate... More

What do you say about this kind of visit? We visited on New Years day. Misty and freezing, only adding to the feeling. Catching the S1 from Friedrichstrasse to Oranienburg (careful here, there is another S1 that terminates a few stations short of Oranienburg, check the front of the S1 that pulls up for the destination), we got to Oranienburg....

This is too much a part of history to be missed. It's surreal and helps in understanding what it truly meant to be a prisoner or guard. My group went with Sandeman tours and the guide had extensive knowledge which was awesome! WELL WORTH IT!

The memorial is just an hour train ride from downtown Berlin. We found the audio tour to be excellent! Give yourself at least a half-day for a visit.

I recently visited Berlin, and with a strong interest in the war, the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp was top of my must see list. I really enjoyed walking around the camp and learning about the history of the place and stories of what had happened. I think it's very important that we learn from previous mistakes and I'm very glad the... More

Visited her on a cold December day. We opted for the audio tour which talks you through the process from arrival at the camp. The fact that you are walking the same route as those before you made it all feel very fresh. I have no way of knowing how those people felt but the camp is very respectful and... More
