My husband and I spent nearly 3 hours here in the snow as it was fascinating to read about the experiences of those who had been forced into this camp. We got the S1 train to Oranienburg (last stop on pink line, north of the...More

It feels wrong to say my partner and I had a great 6 hours at a place where so many peoples lives were ruined, so I will say we have left different people instead. The tour was given by the fantastic Brian, who gave plentiful...More

An interesting location with a more involved in its history than the obvious Nazi parts. A very open space though so try to pick better weather days

History in this place is awsome and creepy, now I understand better what happened during nazy Germany. We can see here how was life in barracks, we can find ancient burners and more.

The camp is located around 1 km walk from Oranienburg Bhf, and is well brown signed. If only the stones of the town could talk, they would witness to the despair of the prisoners being marched through. Orianenburg is a grey, depressed looking town, and...More
