  • See the location of the gas chambers and gallows
  • Learn about life in the camp during World War II and after

Overview

Step inside Sachsenhauser, the concentration camp that set the standard for all those that followed. Learn of the site’s terrible history and see poignant memorials, such as the killing center, gallows, and more.

What to Expect

Explore Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp on the outskirts of Berlin on a half-day walking tour. Though the camp was vast, the 6-hour excursion will focus on the prison camp proper. You will see the external SS training camp, where Kommandant Hoss from Auschwitz was trained and explore the interior of the camp grounds.

The memorial is a 50-minute train ride through the lovely forests of the northern suburbs. Upon arrival at Sachsenhausen, explore the history of the camp, which goes beyond the devastations of World War II. Enter at Tower A and stand on the registration compound, before seeing the Jewish Barracks, boot testing track, gallows, East German memorial, Station Z killing center, gas chamber, and industrial yard. Finally you will visit the hospital and pathology building.

An expert guide will tell you of the bleak existence inside the Gestapo prison and of the laborers who were forced to build it just as the world’s eyes were diverted by the 1936 Olympic Games. You will also learn how the camp was kept in use after the Soviet liberation in 1945, by both the Soviets and East Germans.

Really awesome, informative experience. So glad I did it!

Our tour guide, Seb, was incredibly informed and was able to hit all of his points in an incredibly on-time and on-point format. We were a large group, but the organization was able to divide us and lead our groups with great success. It was an awesome experience and well-worth the 15 EU fee. I would've gladly tipped Seb, but he never made any hint or indication towards accepting tips. Again, would highly recommend.

Deeply moving, compelling and unforgettable.

Our guide, Franziska, was charismatic, passionate and very knowledgable, which made the experience all the more memorable for the right reasons. A lot of people booked onto the tour so it was good that the guides split the group in half to make more manageable sizes to take around the camp. Visiting the camp is such an important and worthwhile thing to do and the information and detail we were given by our guide was brilliant. There was so much to see and learn about meaning there wasn't a structured lunch break, so bring food you can eat easily on the go. A very worthwhile day of our holiday and one we will never forget.
