My family and I visited this attraction knowing it would be heart wrenching. To see what people suffered through and to know that this was done to any human being was terrible. We were amazed at the honestly of the German people in showing what was done and not hiding. They warned everyone so that it might never happen again.... More

About 35 kms from the Centre of Berlin. There are numerous tours ranging from the very cheap to extremely expensive. Ours cost $ 35 for two + train tickets. The tour was excellent value for money. Sachsenhausan Concentration Camp was built in 1936 and the model was widely used for other other concentration camps scattered throughout Germany and Eastern Europe.... More

If you are in Berlin this is one place you must visit. We did a guided tour with Sandemans and it was well worth it. Take the time to remember the atrocities humans have done and the past and do your part in making sure we do not repeat the mistakes of the past by spreading love and open mindedness... More

So glad we took the time on this trip to travel to Sachsenhausen. I think what struck us all was gaining an insight into the terrible conditions these poor people of different ethnic races, political beliefs, religions, sexual preferences etc (and many who were just in the wrong place at the wrong time) were made to endure. It was very... More

It was terrifying to see how the inmades lived the concentration camp. We all knew about how awful a destiny those poor people have had, but when your own feet touch the ground, where thousands of jews, blacks, prostitutes and so on were held as prisonors and killed, you'll understand how cruel it was.

We loved our day here! Jared from Inside Berlin was truly an exceptional guide who had a ton of information as well as a passion for the atrocities that occurred there! It has really sparked some interest in history from my 16 year old! History came alive for her! Loved that Jared was from Indiana!

The experience of Sachsenhausen was made relevant and personal through the personal items, letters and stories of the inmates. A must for all visitors to Berlin.

This was definitely a memorable experience and our guide Mark from Ireland was well informed on the History of that era. I would highly recommend you visit if you have the time as it takes about 5hrs with travel included. Although many of the buildings no longer exist, there is a strong feeling of loss and sadness reminding us 'not... More

The exhibits were well put together with an excellent audio tour that was interesting and factual. Would recommend a visit if you have half a day to spare in Berlin.
