Worth taking time to visit while in Berlin - it's an experience like no other. The only word to describe my trip is haunting. The exhibitions are very well presented ( these close on Monday ) & the audio tour is excellent. Let's hope that the world has learned its lesson ,

A place that many people talk about but few have visited. Cesar was a great tour guide who definitely knew his history. His explanations were clear and accurate and his historical knowledge helped bring the camp to life. Highly recommend this guide for any tourists visiting Berlin.

We visited Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp with an Insider Tour group. Jared was our tour guide, and he did an amazing job of contextualizing the site - its history and the atrocities committed here as well as its present use. I thought about just going out to the site on our own but am so glad we booked the tour. We... More

This place makes history real. We've heard about camps but until you experience a place like this, it's hard to comprehend. We got there a bit after 8:30 am on a Friday and had the entire place to ourselves. I definitely recommend paying the 3 euros for the audio tour. There is do much information, we took our time and...

Went with parents whilst on holiday with parents. The camp itself is of very high standard with a days worth of things to see. The staff were very nice and helpful. Definitely worth seeing!

We spent the day at Sachesenhausen, made our own way there but linked up with a guide - Brian Bell. He was so knowledgeable and really made the experience for us as he explained lots of the history which we would not have necessarily picked up from doing the tour on our own. I would highly recommend a tour guide... More

Tour Guide , Mike Highly recommend tour. I learned so much about the history and time line of what happened in Nazi Germany. Mike was extremely knowledgeable and very passionate about relaying his comprehension of this time period.

I wasn't sure that I wanted to go to Sachenhausen. Part of me felt it would be the right thing to do to remember the victims of Nazism, and to be a witness to history, and part of me felt uncomfortable. It is easy to get to. Either go to the end of the S1 line and get out at... More

Our tour guide,Sam Noble, was very good. He set the tone, explained what we were seeing, and summarized respectfully. How rude and sad that there are people who doubt this awful era of history. By attending, one pays tribute to the many who were imprisoned in a labor/concentration/extermination camp. This one is not overly large, yet is a proper reminder... More

We travelled on the S bahn from Potsdamer Platz to the end of the line at Orianenburg. We then walked about a mile to the camp. We hired the audio guide for 3 euros and then headed into the museum. While walking along the road that entered the camp you can feel a chill come over you walking the steps... More
