It´s a place where you get a tiny impression of what happened in WW II... I felt a little haunted and quite depressed later.
No entry fee!!

We caught the train then bus to and from here, and had a very interesting visit. All of the signs were in German, French and English (we had both English and French in our party). I have visited Dacau in the past with a tour guide, and found both visits extremely interesting and humbling. I would recommend a visit here.

Vitited this memorial in late febuary 2012 .the day was cold and wet .we got a train from Hamburg ,and a taxi to this memorial .I have been to six other Concentration Camps sites before i visited Neuengamme.We were the only visitors there that morning .All the barrack are gone but the foundations of the buildings have been restored and filled with rubble.There is still a lot of this camp still standing eg red brick buildings.It covers a large area and you would have to allow at least three hours to get around this camp. I have visited a few camps before this and found this camp mild compare to Auschwitz..There was no guide or information centre when we visited or else we missed it so you need to do your homework before you visit.Inside the buildings there is a good exhibition which you could miss.We got a bus back to the train station from outsite the main entrance.well worth a visit if you are in hamburg.

Most of the buildings are gone, but they've collected the rubble from them to form blocks to show where the buildings once were. That may sound disappointing at first, but it draws attention to 1. the sheer size of what was not considered to be a large concentration camp. And 2. how serene and beautiful the scenery is. It's hard to imagine such a place existed only minutes outside Hamburg. Nearly every exhibit is in English as well as German.
