We visited the Memorial on a Sunday morning. There is a lot of walking involved but it was well worth it. Bring cash for Museum cafe!

This is a must visit. It doesn't cost anything to pay your respects. There is also an old stone fortress that you can visit that overlooks the camp. Lots of information and never busy.

There are some many of these camps in Germany and other countries. This community has done a wonder job in bringing history back for people to visit and learn from.

This museum and memorial appears to be relatively new, but does an incredible job of depicting the conditions and history of the camp. Very few visitors when we toured in August. Would highly recommend.
