I went here with a group of women on a tour. It isn't one of the better known concentration camps but offers so much more than the more famous ones. It does this mainly by being less crowded so you can get the full effect of the living conditions the prisoners there had to live by. The cruelty the people were subjected is a lesson to all to not judge and to not turn a blind eye.

You don't have to go to a large concentration camp to get an understanding if the horror that took place in that time period. Flossenburg is an incredible museum documenting the atrocities that took place there. We have also visited Dachau and feel that the Flossenburg site has just as much documentation, and not as touristy so you don't feel bothered by others around you.

A sobering reminder in a well preserved concentration camp. It has very well documented exhibits in a professional manner. All in English. No cost to visit (although they do have a donation box). Takes about 2 hrs to walk exhibits and grounds. Well worth the visit!!

A very somber experience for one of the "forgotten" concentration camps. I've been to Auschwitz and Dachau, and this one is just as moving. One - there's very few visitors here, as it's far from any other "attractions." Two - it's fairly new, so the details in the exhibits are top-rate. Three - the compound is small. Please read about the history of the place before you visit.
