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 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.

Furstenberg is just an hour by train from Berlin, then a 2.5km walk to the Ravensbrucke memorial site. The former camp site is in a beautiful location near the lake and forest, which only adds to the horror of the stories it holds. This was...More

I went Ravensbruck for a research project during early spring. It was an emotionally difficult experience. A butterfly was stuck in one of the bunkers, used as slave-labouring factory during the Nazi-era. I was close to start crying, I could not leave the butterfly to...More

Having been somewhat overshadowed by some of better-known camps such as Auschwitz, I think Ravensbrück is definitely a 'must' to visit, most especially because women's narratives in war are so often lost or ignored. When I read Sarah Helm's 2015 book "Ravensbrück: Life and Death...More

Ravensbruck tends to be less well-known than other concentration camps, yet it is a mere 50 miles or so north of Berlin, about an hour by train. This was the camp, and often final destination for women, and whilst a professional guide might be useful...More

Visited with a school class. It is difficult to comprehend how people can be so cruel. The guide explained that the exhibition was brand new. There are many good posters in both english and german. Worth visiting.

There is no describing the horror of this place which remains mostly intact because it was used as a soviet military base for many years after the war. Drawings and comments by women who were interned here cannot easily be erased from one's memory

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
