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.

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.
