Overview
Tour Sachsenhausen, one of the first concentration camps established by the Third Reich, on a full-day trip from Berlin. Licensed guides trained by Memorial authority provide important facts about the prison cells, laboratories, and gas chambers that you see at Sachsenhausen, which today serves as a national memorial to the prisoners who lived and died there.
Highlights
  • Gain a deeper understanding of Third Reich history on a visit to Sachsenhausen 
  • Listen to commentary about the history of Germany's first concentration camp
  • Entrance fees included

What to Expect
Make your way to the Zoologischer Garten train station or Hackescher Markt train station to meet your guide. You will need a Berlin Transport ABC Zone ticket. Relax and enjoy the scenery on the ride to Oranienburg. Arrive at the Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum, where you'll have pre-purchased entrance fees included with your tour. Follow your guide, who will fill you in on the history of the camp, where 200,000 people were imprisoned between the years of 1936 and 1945. Visit the burial pits, gallows, gas chambers, and punishment cells located inside the prison. Hear stories of prisoner bravery as well as the atrocities that took place at the camp, which now serves as a national memorial to the prisoners who lived and died here. At the conclusion of your tour, return to Berlin the way you came.
