Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen Tours

Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen
Located just north of Berlin, Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen was once one of the Nazi regime’s harshest prison camps. Today, Sachsenhausen is a memorial to those who lost their lives here, as well as a museum with a library, archive, and open-air exhibits to educate visitors.

The Basics
Inside Sachsenhausen, a collection of exhibits allow you to explore sites such as the barracks, prison, kitchen, and commandant’s offices. While entry to Sachsenhausen is free, a guided tour provides additional insight into the history of Nazi Germany and further illuminates the lives of prisoners who were once held at the camp. Most tours of the solemn memorial site leave from Berlin, including private and small-group excursions that offer a personalized experience.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Allow about two hours to fully explore the site, and wear comfortable shoes for walking between exhibits.
  • The memorial site is a somber place that invites reflection; remember to be respectful. 
  • Most of Sachsenhausen is wheelchair accessible. 

How to Get There
Sachsenhausen is located in Oranienburg, roughly one hour by train and 40 minutes by road from central Berlin. To get there via public transit, take the metro (S-Bahn) to Oranienburg from downtown Berlin, then walk 20 minutes or take bus 804 to the memorial site. 

When to Get There
The Sachsenhausen memorial is open year-round. Much of the site is outdoors, so dress for the weather if you plan to visit during winter. The library and archive are open Tuesday through Friday, while the open-air exhibits and memorial are open daily. 

Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp History
The camp was built by prisoners in the summer of 1936 and was used to train SS officers who went on to command other Nazi concentration camps. A total of 105,000 people died at Sachsenhausen-Oranienburg during World War II, and in January 1945, just months before the site was liberated by the Allies in April, more than 65,000 men and women prisoners were here.
Address: Straße der Nationen 22, Berlin 16515, Germany

Memorial of Sachsenhausen (former concentration camp)

star-5
Accompany our guides, certified by the Brandenburg Memorial Foundation, to the former Sachsenhausen concentration camp.Sachsenhausen was created as a model for the concentration camps and later for the development of prison extermination systems.In a rigorous but enjoyable way we will know the daily life of these men, from the Court of Magazine guarded by the "eye that sees everything" Tower A, to the barracks where the Jews, the most hated people by Nazi Germany, he will be imprisoned for his future extermination.We will visit the maximum security prison, for special inmates, where we will stop to contemplate the interior of the cells where some of the prisoners suffered the persecution of the GESTAPO and the rigid control of the SS.The reality was another, a rationalization of the system of terror applied through a caste system and the development of an extermination center called "Station Z".
