All reviews transit camp the bus dutch jews other places excellent museum long walk included in the price camp area would recommend a visit site information centre auschwitz concentration exhibits poland visitors
Excellent museum which we were given a booklet containing all the English translations so accessible for all. Site of camp was very different to Dachau where we have also visited - no buildings remain but the scale of the camp can be seen and there...More
When we visited the Visitor Centre of the Kamp, we noticed that many texts were in Dutch only which we found very strange. We are Dutch but many visitors are not, especially a problem for the families of the many Americans that were killed whilst...More
I challenge anybody who visits this transit camp not to be moved by the experience, just think 102000 people left this place to be murdered, there is a information center at the beginning then a bus ride to the camp itself unfortunate most of the...More
If you are reading this, you are considering visiting a place that you already know contains a heart wrenching story. The camp is easy enough to find, once you get close. The Interpretive Center is staffed by caring a kind people, but then venue itself...More
A visit to the education centre of Kanp Westerbork should be part of history education. After having seen the exhibition, take time to reflect while walking through the forest where the Kamp was located. Take the walk to the parade ground and silently look at...More
If you are in the location I would recommend a visit. The staff speak English and have a folder of translations where I agree with a previous observation that it would have helped if the exhibits were numbered. It goes without saying that the venue...More
The Kamp is the place where 102.000 Dutch Jews, gypsies and gays were gathered and transported to the concentration camps in Germany, Poland and other places, Auschwitz, Theresienstadt, Mauthausen, Ravensbruck, Dachau and more.
There are 2 parts: the museum and the fields.
The museum is impressive; graphic photos and films and other objects.
The fields are less interesting; you have the broken trainrails and old houses but it is mostly open field.
Note: there is a (free) bus...More
Wanted to visit this former refugee camp that was used in the second world war to transfer about 102000 fellow citizens to German concentration camps. The camp itself is a good 2 mile walk - or a short free bus ride - from the visitor...More

First, if you are an English speaker, you will not understand many things at the camp. Second, unlike the US and Canada; the Dutch national historic sites such as the Anne Frank House and Camp Westerbork are poorly done and are not something you would have done just as well reading a guide book. The train is arduous and difficult; rent a car, but don’t speed by EVEN ONE KILOMETER, photo cops everywhere. You will be there very fast and see it. You can walk Kamp Westerbork, they have a shuttle inside the camp. Honestly, skip it. We are very interested in this history and were very disappointed. It wasn’t even a national monument until a few years ago and most of it was torn down. Go to the flower auction, Jewish Synagogue and Museums instead. Drive up and see the dam across the North Sea. Go see The Hague in Rotterdam.
