    What to Expect
    By the summer of 1940, Mauthausen Concentration Camp had become one of the largest labor camp complexes in the German-occupied part of Europe. Some 200,000 people are thought to have been imprisoned at Mauthausen between 1938 and 1945, and about half of them lost their lives. Mauthausen was the last camp complex to be liberated by the Allies.

    Begin your day with a cab ride from your hotel to central Vienna to join up with your driver. Hold on to your receipt so that your cab cost can be repaid after your trip.

    Climb aboard your comfortable tour vehicle, meet your friendly English-speaking tour escort and become acquainted with the history of Mauthausen Memorial during the ride from Vienna. Relax as you journey through the countryside of Lower and Upper Austria.

    Arrive at Mauthausen Memorial, a building that stands on the site of the former Mauthausen Concentration Camp. Grab your audio guide (available in 11 languages) and begin touring independently through the grounds. See Wiener-Graben quarry, the prisoners’ barracks, the so-called 'Stairs of Death,' SS-quarters, gas chamber, camp prison and the Mauthausen Museum for more historical background on the camp and WWII.

    Afterward, climb back aboard  tour vehicle and begin the drive back to Vienna. There will be a stop for lunch at a local restaurant (own expense.) You will be returned to the Vienna State Opera in Downtown Vienna.

    excellent guide, this was the best trip of our holiday. Myself and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed it. The stories told by the guide in the mini bus were heart warming and his knowledge was first rate. I can’t recommend this enough!

    Dear adios5, thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour and that Flemming was able to provide a historical context.

    We learned so much with our expert guide. She really took her time and shared deeply with us. A moving day. Be sure to leave enough time to return to visitor center and process the day's information. Beautiful views from atop the hill. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.

    This tour was one of the highlights of my trip. Whilst I realise that sounds odd as it was a visit to a place that saw so much horror during the war, it was an incredible experience to see what occurred. On the way out to the camp, we were provided with an iPad and able to watch
