I think everyone should visit these places, it really is a very moving experience and hard to understand that people can do what went on there, it's free to visit.

Other concentration camps have more to see, but that is not the point. The mounds of earth marked 5000 buried here or 2000 buried here bring a lump to your throat and makes you stare in disbelief in Man's inhumanity to Man. The area is...More

As with other concentration camps visited the exhibition here is similar in that it gives a very moving factual account of the camp from its start to after liberation. With pictures, videos and numerous artifacts a visit needs about 2hiurs. Whilst nothing is left of...More

It is busy during the day so you would be better off arriving at 17:00 and spending an hour in the superb museum before it closes at 18:00 then bike around the camp site which is fully open after hours.
