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).

I enjoy taking time to get to know the history of a city when I visit a new one, and Sachsenhausen is a huge part of the history of not only Berlin, but Germany as a whole. Our tour guide, Maria, was wonderful. She knows the camp and its history so well and her delivery was very personal. She also welcomed my questions when I approached her as we walked back to the station on the way back into the city.

Thank you very much this was most certainly the highlight of my trip.

Excellent tour to take. Even though it was cold and raining all day, overcome by an outstanding, knowledgeable English speaking guide 'CESAR'. He is a History major and he shared his knowledge. Highly recommend this tour and guide. 5 star

Our tour guide Lorna was extremely knowledgeable. Her voice projection was excellent and no matter where I stood I could hear her. The tour was long but because it was made up of different stages broken up by exhibitions it really didn't seem that long. A highly recommended tour!!

It was a cold and rainy day, which was quite fitting for where we were. But our guide was incredible. He was very helpful with the trains and then was very knowledgeable on the tour. I learned a great deal from our guide. He did a great job.

Nickolai was an amazing tour guide on this very sobering tour of Sachsenhausen. He was very friendly, personable and above all, extremely knowledgeable. He provided so much insight, history and information and in a very respectful way. I highly recommend taking this tour and if Nickolai is your guide, even better!
