Meet your trip guide in the morning in front of the Berlin TV Tower in Alexanderplatz. Then travel by public train to Oranienburg and continue on foot the short distance to the camp entrance.

After paying your entrance fee (own expense), enter inside the camp, passing through the main entrance gate and ‘Tower A’ with its infamous ‘Arbeit Macht Frei’ (work sets you free) sign. You’ll continue exploring camp locations like the Jewish Barracks, roll-call area, the former prison, and the Jewish Barracks. Your Sachsenhausen experience proceeds next to ‘Station Z,’ the site of the camp’s gas chamber and crematorium.

Head next to the camp’s infirmary and pathology areas, and view the perimeter towers and fences. You’ll also learn about Sachsenhausen’s use by the Soviets following the end of World War II. At the end of your visit, there will also be time to ask plenty of questions. It’s a powerful look inside a chilling period of history.

This was a very interesting.thought provoking trip with a very knowledgable guide.My only complaint is that I would have

This was a very informative tour and was at a nice pace, it is also run by a not for profit which was important for me. A lot of companies make money from running concentration camp tours, these guys give back.

Excellent and interesting trip, well worth the money. Our guide was excellent giving us a lot of information. We went by train need to buy a day ticket and then on foot for around 25 minutes to the camp, stopping off for a short time at an information centre. The entry for the camp is only 1.40 paid to the guide extra.The guide escorted us round the camp for several hours and then gave us free time for an hour. take lunch with you Lots of artefacts to see, living accommodation, prison and furnaces. Then return to Berlin by train with the guide. Would recommend this trip highly.

There were so many options for visiting Sachsenhausen. I am so happy we chose this one. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept the atmosphere of our time at the camp respectful as it definitely needed to be. It was shocking to see other visitors laughing and taking what I considered very inappropriate selfies. Our guide was very helpful and accommodating even on the train back to Berlin...giving good instructions for people who wanted to get off at earlier or later stops that were more convenient for their particular schedules. Note: WC accommodations were limited.

Our guide, Campbell, was very knowledgeable and full of historical facts and yet friendly and caring. He he gave us advance information on what to expect and what to look for at various points of the tour. At the end of the tour, he made sure everyone can find their way back to their next destination, be it back to their hotels or someplace else. He even gave us a restaurant recommendation since we wanted to go to one serving German food.

Our guide Simon was sooo knowledgable, friendly and just a pleasure to be around. We had horrendous rain and was happy to stop for us all to buy umbrella even though it ate into his personal time. Was an interesting yet sad day to see all that the prisoners went through. Would def reccomend to do it
