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.

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, and are licensed and trained by official memorial authority.

Great Tour

Our tour with Nickolai was fantastic. As a World War 2 history teacher his information and descriptions of the memorial was just right. In a place that needs solemnity he got it just right. Highly recommended.

Fine day in a horrible place

Our guide Yan was amazing. He made the history alive, had knowledge, was funny (if one could in a place like this) and was charming too. The tour was very well organized. I will never forget the walk towards to camp, through beautiful small town...More

Sorry, but that is not possible. The tour takes in practically the whole day including going and back to your point of departure. You need at least 2 days or more in Berlin. Good luck.

Sorry do not know. Looks like it is too expensive. It cost us only 44 Australian dollars for 2, but we had to pay for everything extra. But it should not cost that much. Read the small print there might be some hidden things... More
