This is too much a part of history to be missed. It's surreal and helps in understanding what it truly meant to be a prisoner or guard. My group went with Sandeman tours and the guide had extensive knowledge which was awesome! WELL WORTH IT!

The memorial is just an hour train ride from downtown Berlin. We found the audio tour to be excellent! Give yourself at least a half-day for a visit.

I recently visited Berlin, and with a strong interest in the war, the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp was top of my must see list. I really enjoyed walking around the camp and learning about the history of the place and stories of what had happened. I think it's very important that we learn from previous mistakes and I'm very glad the... More

Visited her on a cold December day. We opted for the audio tour which talks you through the process from arrival at the camp. The fact that you are walking the same route as those before you made it all feel very fresh. I have no way of knowing how those people felt but the camp is very respectful and... More

This was an excellent morning's trip. Meeting at the Brandeburg Gate you are taken with your guide in a group (approximatelt 20 persons) to a local station where you catch the train which takes approx. 40min to arrive into Oranienburg. You then have a 10min walk to the concentration camp. The guide was fantastic and had great knowledge and enthusiasm.... More

Oranienburg is a short train ride away from the modern vibrant Berlin. However the dull quiet town feels like another place entirely. The walk to the actual camp through the town is a good 20 minutes journey. It makes you wonder what the good people of the town must have thought when they saw the prisoners being taken from the...

We took an escorted trip with Tours Berlin. Meet at the Hauptbahnhof station concourse by Luca, who did a superb job shepherding our group. Luca ensured we all got tickets for the train, €7.70 return, then talked us through some of the history of Germany before the war, and the events that led to Hitler's rise to power. The train...

For a person who likes history and is keen to know about the various tortures and practices done by the hitler regime, this is the place to be. About 1.5 hour drive away from main berlin by bus, but worth it

Phil did an excellent job telling the many stories of Sachsenhausen. The weather was viciously that day but he took us all on an informative journey, which was compelling and tragic at the same time.
