Take the train from central Berlin to Oranienburg and get a bus or a pleasant 20 minute or so stroll through the town. At the visitor centre get an audio guide, you need to leave some form of id as a deposit (bank card , id card or similar is fine) I would allow at least 3 hours for your... More

This is one of those places where I wasn't sure whether I should go or not. But we had a spare day when we were in Berlin and decided to visit. Easy ride on the train from Hbf to Oranieburg then the bus to the site. We decided to take it easy and explore the site on our own at... More

It is important we all visit a place like this at least once in our lives. Very touching and impactful and definitely a must go. Well-preserved with exhibitions around the site. Go with a tour guide (recommend Sandeman's). Be prepared to walk a lot.

We were lucky to get Brian as our Sachsenhousen tour guide when we booked it in Viator. We met early in the morning at a train station with a bag full of snacks and extended our train tickets so they cover zone c. From the get go, Brian was enthusiastic, informative and full of energy. He was respectful and understanding... More

I have never came away from a tour feeling so informed and heartbroken. It was extremely hard to hear about the hardship of those back in 1936. A must-see place and if I was ever to return to Berlin would make sure I went back. Rachel 10/10 tour guide, so informative and definately went above and beyond and spoke in... More

I had visited this camp previously in early summer. I remember the deep impact it caused on me and how valuable the whole experience was. But I had the chance to go back in Winter (Feb 2015) and now with my wife. It was freezing cold and it started to snow. Even with our comfortable and winter clothes, it wasn't... More

A really well kept and sensitively presented memorial to the holocaust. We should never forget the limits to what politicians can stoop to.

It's difficult to rate this experience. It wasn't positive. It was harrowing. But I'm glad I did it and would recommend it because it's such a crucial piece of history to understand. The best I could have hoped for was a great guide, and I had that. Her name was Franceska (may have misspelled it) and I booked this trip... More
