What You Can Expect

Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Tour from Berlin

Visit Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp on this day trip

Meet your host in either the east or west of the city — the choice is yours — and then travel together by train (own expense). Your destination is the town of Oranienburg (just less than an hour away) to visit Sachsenhausen, one of the first Nazi concentration camps constructed in 1936. When you arrive, an expert guide leads you inside the campgrounds, where you will learn chilling facts about the prisoners who lived and died here.

For nearly a decade the SS imprisoned some 200,000 Jews, socialists, Communists, and liberals, among other opponents to the Nazi regime. The punishment cells, gas chambers and burial pits that you will see on this tour can be overwhelming, but your guide will put the site's history into context with expert knowledge about one of the darkest periods of the 20th century.

At the end of your time at Sachsenhausen, meet your host to finish the day-long trip with a train ride back to either east or west Berlin (own expense).

We took this tour on recommendation of a fellow traveler. What an eye opening experience it was! Finn, Our tour guide was simply amazing! Very well informed. He spoke of the horrors of the concentration camp without overdoing it or sugarcoating it. Very experienced guide! He was very open to all questions clearly he loves his job. Fellow travelers, please tip your guides! Would highly recommend this tour.

Jared was a very informed guide. His knowledge of both the site and its important context within this horrific part of history kept his group aware of the tragic trail they were following. Powerful tour and well worth the long walk in the hot sun.

This is a fantastic, yet highly emotional tour, handled brilliantly by the Insider Berlin tour company. Our guide Nicholai was very knowledgable, and told us many stories of things that happened during the time this camp was in operation. He gave a very honest, and detailed picture of some of the horrific events that happened here. Like I said, it's an emotional tour, it's very hard to imagine and get your head around what you are seeing and being told. For this reason alone I highly recommend going here and definitely taking this tour, it really is worth every penny.

Passeio que vale a pena não somente por conta das instalações, mas também pelos comentários feitos pelo guia que contextualizaram o campo de concentração dentro do capítulo deplorável da história da Alemanha em guerra e da URSS no pós guerra. Prepare-se para andar muito.

JJ our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He ensured we got on the right train and checked we had the right tickets. The day flew by and it is one I shall always remember. Full of facts which we could hardly grasp and accompanied by the evidence which we could not dispute. The best choice we made for an overall fantastic trip to Berlin.

Very profound experience and guided by Mr. Mike, I was able to immerse myself into history itself.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Sad day but what an experience. We learnt so much of this crazy history. JJ was an excellent guide. There were nearly 40 people in our group but he always managed to keep everyone close together so no one missed any of his knowledge which I have to say was outstanding.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

An incredibly humbling and sombre experience which I would recommend to anyone to do. You cannot truly comprehend the atrocities committed here, but we must never forget the pain and suffering inflicted on innocent people here, and coming here, seeing the camp, ensures that you never will. Our guide was well organised, friendly, knowledgeable and informative. Definitely recommended.
