The Basics

Inside Sachsenhausen, a collection of exhibits allow you to explore sites such as the barracks, prison, kitchen, and commandant’s offices. While entry to Sachsenhausen is free, a guided tour provides additional insight into the history of Nazi Germany and further illuminates the lives of prisoners who were once held at the camp. Most tours of the solemn memorial site leave from Berlin, including private and small-group excursions that offer a personalized experience.

The Memorial Tour: Visit to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp (licensed guide)
Our guide Paul's experience and knowledge was great! Would be good if he wore a uniform or something less casual so we could identify him. But he knows so much! He shared so much.

The Memorial Tour: Visit to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp (licensed guide)
The actual tour was excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his subject.. and able to fully and comprehensively answer all questions. I would thoroughly recommend it. My review is for the actual tour not the administration. The first booking was cancelled the night before which was inconvenient for a tourist with limited time.

Excellent tour! Very sobering and thought provoking. Tour organization was awesome very easy. They meet at a central location and escort us to train to meet our guide. A bit of a walk thru the town once we arrived but it was great! Guide Jamie was awesome!

Private Tour to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial (With Licensed Guide)
My mom and I visited Sachsenhausen with our guided tour guide, Aaron. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. Once we departed the train he gave us the option to take the bus or walk to the camp. We decided to take the 20 minute walk which was through a standard German neighborhood. Once at the camp we spent 3 or so hours walking, talking and taking photos of the camp. I highly recommend Aaron as a guide.

Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Tour from Berlin
Mike was superb. Enthusiastic, but most importantly, knowledgeable. He didn't hold back on sharing the horror or in acknowledging the efforts of Germans to properly memorialize the victims and events.

Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Walking Tour
This was a well-organised tour, with an expert guide. The subject matter was of course challenging and it was approached with great sensitivity; at the same time we were all challenged to think very hard about what we were seeing. We were a mixed group of adults and teenagers with varying knowledge of the history of the period, and this tour was informative and thought provoking for all. It was exactly what we wanted - I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp History

The camp was built by prisoners in the summer of 1936 and was used to train SS officers who went on to command other Nazi concentration camps. A total of 105,000 people died at Sachsenhausen-Oranienburg during World War II, and in January 1945, just months before the site was liberated by the Allies in April, more than 65,000 men and women prisoners were here.
