More than 100,000 Jews, communists, intellectuals, gypsies and homosexuals were killed by Nazis between 1936 and 1945 in this concentration camp. Some of the buildings have been preserved in their original form including barracks, and a pathology department where Nazis performed medical experiments on the inmates.

This concentration camp can be accessed through public transport, which stops right in front of the camp. The camp is mainly outdoor, so dress well if you are visiting during winter days. The camp goes over a large stretch of land, with history explained through...More

Hi J. The time includes travel, you have approx 2 1/2 hrs at the camp. It's a real eye opener, sobering and well worth visiting. Hope you enjoy Berlin, we did 😁.
