Make a sobering visit to the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp near Berlin on this 6-hour private tour. Discover the history of this model concentration camp using the expertise of historian and former British military attaché in Berlin, Nigel Dunkley, who created the tour. Explore the site’s cells, execution grounds, hospital and more with your guide, learning about the camp’s unique design and role in the events of World War II. Your visit also includes hotel pickup and drop-off.
What to Expect
During the 1936 Olympics, hosted by Nazi Germany, slave laborers were forced to build a new concentration camp just north of Berlin, intended to hold the Nazis’ political enemies. This camp was Sachsenhausen, and during the next decade some 200,000 people were imprisoned within the camp before it was evacuated by the Soviets in 1945. For another five years, the Soviets used the camp to imprison 60,000 war criminals, including Nazis and Nazi collaborators.

On this tour, you'll explore the Sachsenhausen memorial site with a private guide. See the cells, execution grounds, crematorium, pathology laboratory, hospital and other sites, and learn about the camp's history, those imprisoned here and why Nazi architects considered Sachsenhausen to have the ideal structure for a concentration camp.

This tour was researched and created by former British military attaché Nigel Dunkley, one of the world’s leading military historians. Your tour may or may not be led by Nigel; all private tour guides have their own special knowledge of the history of Sachsenhausen and are experienced in unraveling the complex history of World War II and the Holocaust.
