Let's get one thing straight, this is a KZ, a concentration camp and as such it js nothing less then absolutely horrible. Leaving lack of respect for human lives aside (which you of course cannot do) this place is testament to an engineering marvel and...More

As any kz camp memorial it is important never to forget what cruelty some people are capable of doing. The museum is very interesting and a visit to the tunnels a must. You will leave with more informed but also with a heavy heart. One...More

We heard about Mittlebau-Dora whilst travelling through Germany with a group of Scouts. We called in without a prior reservation and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We didn't do the tour but made use of the guide books to tour the museum before...More

I'll not repeat the excellent comments made by other contributors. This visit would have been excellent if the information boards also had an English translation and more importantly, the audio guides were more comprehensive, particularly covering the tunnels in some detail. We both feel that...More

This former forced labour/concentration camp is a must see if in the area. Although few of the building are left, except the crematorium, the walk around the extensive area of the camp is well signposted and information boards tell the terrible story of the 20,000...More

I was near the area so I dragged my boyfriend to go to this KZ for a tour. The tour on Sunday was at 11:00 in German. It's the only way to get into the tunnel so we did this tour. It was in German...More

The now peaceful site of this former concentration camp belies its past. Hundreds died here as they were forced to participate in the building of the V-2 rocket. Much of the work was underground in deplorable conditions. This site is personally guided but well-marked. Allow...More

It appears to be just a regular Nazi concentration camp (what alone makes it a terrible place) until you enter the underground part of it. Then you realise how much effort was required to keep the Nazi killing machine running, constructing weapons at a cost...More

Is this a visitor "attraction"? A morbid curiosity? Or essential to understand the tragedies of mankind? Whatever, we called in to this former concentration camp - the site where 20,000 slave workers died building Hitlers Revenge weapons, the V1 and V2 rockets to learn and...More
