Only a short drive from Berlin brings you to a lovely spot on a lake shore. Real contrast to horrible things that happened there. Fully restored surroundings and museum worth visiting.

Even a history major/tour guide in Berlin said there wasn't much to see at Ravensbrück but she and everyone else was so wrong. No, there aren't barracks or even many buildings remaining, but what is there evokes the horror. And the museum is one of...More

We have a family connection with Ravensbruck. A very interesting memorial and some what depressing when you consider what the place was established as. Slave labour camp for women. Sad that so me=any children were born here and most died. The Museum is interesting but...More

We caught the train from the quayside, changed at Rostock and arrived in Furstenberg/Haval in around 2½ hours. A further 40 min walk took us to the relatively newly built Visitor Centre. The route is not particularly well signposted,(particularly in English). Go left out of...More

Most of the mainstream WWII narratives do not focus on Ravensbrueck, but the story of the women who were taken here and labored in this camp is incredible powerful. Women from all over Europe were brought to Ravensbrueck, sometimes before or after time in Auschwitz...More

The Ravensbrück Memorial is a fitting and moving tribute to the struggles of the female concentration camp prisoners who suffered there. The main exhibition is incredibly detailed with some insightful memories from prisoners. You really could spend all day here reading their stories. Ravensbrück is...More

The organization and presentation of the extensive information in the site museum (located in the former camp headquarters) is superb and makes a fascinating visit. Highly recommended.

Looked this up on Google Earth after reading the book The Hiding Place about the atrocities of the Jewish prison camps during WWII. The site shows the Ravensbrueck location but many, if not most, of the buildings have been demolished. I believe tours are available.

Beautiful memorial site, have both museum like areas as well as access to the grounds. Recommend spending some time so you can do both. Guides very good, a lot of mosquitoes at night time.

There is not much of the actual camp left but what there is must definitely be seen. From the officers houses littered within the forest to the execution alley within the camp and the crematorium. There are no words to explain this place, the resting...More

Yes, there are taxis. Sometimes there is one waiting near the station. There is also a bus which takes you part way. The information centre at the memorial will call you a taxi to return to the station.

You can just show up and walk around - Ravensbruck isn't busy like some of the other camps that are close to major German and Polish cities. Entry is free, but you can pay a few Euro for the audioguide (which was very good... More
