Went there and was just speechless. In WW2, so many people were taken to german camps. This is one of them, and it is close to my home. Never took time to go there until "That day"... Got really emotional from the stories the guide...More

Camp Vught is the closest Concentration Camp to visit, the change to get in is not cheap at 6 Euro's per person but is free the 1st Wednesday of each month. A small taster of how horrific these camps were but as a late addition...More

Dear Steve, thank you for your visit. I hope you were also able to visit barak 1B, located halfway down the street, with the restored camp barrack and a multilingual exhibit concerning Camp Vught during and after the war. This is a good combination, however...More

This was the first camp I'd been too and although it was very informative and well designed I found lack of English translation a little frustrating. When I say designed I mean that most of the camp has been knocked down and rebuilt as a...More

Dear Ell1981London Thank your for your message. Camp Vught National Memorial is meant to be a memorial centre and I agree with you it is not as horrific as at that time, since it is reconstructed and above all: we cannot imagine or reconstruct exactly,...More

Although only a fraction of the original camp is available to tour, the monument is worth seeing if you are interested in this history. It may be helpful to know a bit about the camp before visiting. The information placards are not in English, but...More

I have a personal connection to the camp...my grandfather and great-grandfather were imprisoned here for 3 months in early 1943. I had heard a few stories from my mom, and wanted to see the kamp for myself. It was very powerful and moving. Lots of...More

Following the glowing tripadvisor reports, I was looking forward to visiting Kamp Vught. Though very relevant to the victims of the second world war, I found the museum quite sterile. The only thing of authenticity was the memorial at the far end of the site,...More

This memorial is very well done. Everything is in Dutch, though. There is no formal tour. You walk through on your own. Nothing is in English--which would have been nice but did not detract too much from the experience. This camp is very well done....More

Hi, I am traveling to the Netherlands with a study abroad class and I would like to visit this site on one of my free half days.I know I will be free to explore on my own around 12 in the afternoon. Im wondering I would have sufficient time to travel to the site and back and have enough time to see everything. My free afternoon would be on March 24th. Any help with this would be appreciated. Thanks!

Vught was chosen as the site for the Camp because of it's proximity to Den Bosch which is a train hub a bit like Crewe or York in the UK so rail transport should be an option. There is a line that runs within a few hundred... More
