The former concentration camp was eerie just trying to imagine what its inmates had suffered. It is accessible but with some cobbled areas and does have an accessible toilet

The camp was built originally to house political prisoners however eventually it was used for more than that. The camp is open and has it's own museum---very sobering but worthwhile. We encountered many groups of school children as the schools want the newest generation to remember the terrible past in order to avoid repeating it in some way.

This trip was worth way more than the 16 euro I paid for it. The tour was 5.5 hours in total. We started in Berlin, and our guide, Sam, lead us via train & bus to Sachsenhausen. He walked us through all components of this concentration camp, including the crematorium, gas chamber, work houses, prison, barracks and more. These concentration... More

Went on this tour as a result of the excellent free tour run by Sandemans. We were not disappointed, our guide Rochelle was incredible, her knowledge & passion for such a difficult & horrendous topic gave us an amazing insight into the history of the camp. We cannot recommend this tour (or Rochelle) highly enough

No matter how you get here, drive or tour, you must visit to understand this part of history. I do recommend a guided tour to get all of the back story. Most of the original buildings are gone, but there is enough to give you a feel for what was there. It will cause you to reflect on life.

Only spending two days in Berlin and having a high interest in the historical and war background of Germany this was a must do! We went with a tour guide just to make the experience more in-depth and well organised, which it was. We had Jared as our guide and he was fantastic start to finish! Very informative and willing...
