Terezín Memorial (Theresienstadt) Tours

A harrowing reminder of Europe’s dark history, the Terezin Concentration Camp was set up in the Czech Republic by the Nazi regime in 1941 and used as a holding camp for prisoners awaiting transfer to Auschwitz and Treblinka concentration camps. Today, the World War II site is preserved as a museum and memorial, telling the horrifying truths of the Holocaust, as well as the stories of some of the 150,000-plus prisoners held at the camp and the tens of thousands who lost their lives.

The Basics
Single entrance tickets offer access to the Ghetto Museum or Small Fortress, while combined entrance tickets allow access to both of those sites in addition to the Magdeburg Barracks. Most visitors arrive on a day trip from Prague and explore the camp on a guided walking tour, taking in sites such as the Schutzstaffel headquarters, the Gestapo prison cells, the Ghetto Museum, and the Magdeburg Barracks. For a more personalized experience, opt for a small-group visit or a private tour.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The camp is spread out over a large area, so wear comfortable shoes and suitable outdoor clothing.
  • Be mindful of the site’s somber history and observe the rules of visiting, which include acting and dressing with appropriate respect.
  • Most of the buildings at the Terezin Concentration Camp are wheelchair accessible, and admission is free for disability cardholders.
  • Guided tours of the Small Fortress and Ghetto Museum are offered in English, Czech, German, French, Spanish, Italian, and Russian.

How to Get There
Terezin Concentration Camp is located in the fortress town of Terezín in North Bohemia, 30 miles (48 kilometers) northwest of Prague. Public buses run from Florenc station in central Prague and take about an hour.

When to Get There
Terezin is open year-round, but it’s busiest during the summer months. Aim to visit early in the day to avoid the main crowds. Although opening hours vary by site and season, the memorial typically opens between 8 and 10am and closes between 4 and 6pm.
