Meet your guide at your hotel, settle into your private vehicle and soak up the scenery on the approximately 2-hour journey to Mauthausen. On arrival, head to the Visitor Center to pick up your audio guide and set out on your self-guided tour as your driver waits for you outside.
Stroll around the harrowing site and listen to the audio commentary as you see the Wiener-Graben quarry, the SS-Quarters and the Camp Prison. Hear how some 200,000 people from all over Europe were imprisoned in Mauthausen between 1938 and 1945 as you walk between the Stairs of Death and the Gas Chamber, where almost half of them lost their lives.
Then, visit the recently re-opened Mauthausen Museum to learn more about the darkest days of Austria’s history, the Nazi regime and the Mauthausen concentration camp, which was one of the largest labor camp complexes in the Third Reich.
After an emotional and educational visit, meet your driver for the return journey and end your tour with drop-off at your hotel.
