What You Can Expect

Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Walking Tour

Sachsenhausen, Germany

While the Nazis were hosting the 1936 Olympic games, slave laborers were being forced to build a huge new concentration camp just north of Berlin, intended to hold political 'enemies' of the Nazi regime political, racial and 'asocial'. Of the 200,000 people interned, over 50,000 lost their lives before the camp was liberated by the Soviets in 1945.

The camp was then used by the Soviets until 1950 to detain former Nazis, German soldiers and political opponents of the communists. Many thousands more died from malnutrition and disease.

The key to this walking tour is the informative and illuminating narrative provided by your expert tour guide. During your 3-hour visit to the camp you'll learn important background history of the site as you walk through the Appellplatz parade ground, the Jewish Barrack, punishment cells, execution grounds and crematorium, Station Z, the Pathology Laboratory and camp hospital.

This tour was researched by historian Gabriel Fawcett, who is publishing an important witness account of the camp. All tour guides have their own special insights into the history of Sachsenhausen, and are experienced in unraveling the complex history of the Third Reich and the Holocaust.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

This was one of the best tours I've ever been on. It is a difficult subject to broach, and I feel like we lucked out with our guide, Dennis. He was an amazing wealth of knowledge, and is a great story teller. I learned a lot, and he did a great job answering everyone's questions. It's clear he's a history expert and he went above and beyond to make this tour memorable. We had some travel snafus out of his control with the trains, and he found an alternate route w/buses so we could complete our tour with no problem. I highly recommend this tour--you will want Dennis as your tour guide.

Caroline was an amazing guide. This tour is worth doing. Please note there is miles of walking, and this tour does not stop for lunch. You need to bring food and drink with you.
