Well organized and professionally presented. We read online that it would take 2-3 hours to see, but wished we had more like 5 hours, so that we could read the signs more thoroughly and not hurry from one thing to the next. The museum in...More
For me it was new that there was concentration camps in France. But there is and even with gas chamber. So it is worth a visit as it is quite well maintained and has an interesting history. The view is very beautiful so it is...More
We have been to Dachau in Germany and it's free entry as it is a place to educate today's generation on the history of the Nazis so I was surprised and disappointed to have to pay 8 euros to get in.
However is has plenty...More
Having visited a number of camps elsewhere in Europe I was surprised to find there was one in France. I've been through the Vosges area a few times and now understand why. Situated at the top of a high hill above Natzweiler you have to...More
This is located on the top a mountain in the Vogue mountains. There is a museum which details the history and the reason behind the camp as well as some of the inmates who were imprisoned here.
You then walk around the camp. It was...More
On the winding picturesque road up to the camp it is hard to imagine the horrors that took place in such a beautiful forest setting. But man's inhumanity is lade bare throughout the camp in the exhibits.
Chilling, emotional but well worth a visit if...More
This is not the first concentration camp we have visited, but is a special place and worth visiting. The scenery is stunning. It is difficult to imagine that in such a beautiful place such attrocities could take place. But they did. And it was not...More
A very worth will visit , very hot when we visited that limited our visit. Plenty to see including a short video about the history of the concentration camp and the part it played in the persecution of French resistance and subsequent execution of SOE...More
It is a pleasant trip through the forest to get there and the beautiful surrounding scenery belies the utterly awful things that happened there. It is still pretty much intact and has a range of good displays. You need a car as some of the...More
The only concentration camp in France. Self guided tour with information boards in English.
Exhibits & artefacts are extremely good & tell the story of those persecuted by the Nazi's so well
A must if you are in the area.

Strasburg is the city with rail links to Paris and where you can hire a car. When you turn off the main road to the Natzwiller village, the road you want is on the left Rue de l'enfer road to hell. As you ascend the hill their is a building on your left. Inside is a tiny gas chamber . Chemical were placed under the drain. When 12 or so prisoners were locked inside, water would be introduced by the grooved pipe which activated the chemicals to produce gas
Bodies thus gassed were kept in the deep pit with preserving liquid and periodically sent for forensic examination. The camp is farther uphill - notice how hidden it is as you approach. The road on the right before the camp leads to the quarry. All concentration camps had a work function often quarries. You have to pay for entrance - but of course this is France!
