Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Tour from Berlin

Visit Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp on this day trip

Begin your tour with a guide meet and greet at Zoologischer Garten train station or Hackescher Markt train station. Then it’s approximately a 45-minute ride to the Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum in Oranienburg.

More than 200,000 people were imprisoned in Sachsenhausen between 1936 and 1945. At first, the prisoners were primarily political opponents of the Nazi regime. However, people that were defined by the National Socialists as racially or biologically inferior were later included.

By 1939, there were a large number of citizens from the occupied European states imprisoned here. Tens of thousands of people died of starvation, disease, forced labor and mistreatment, or they were victims of the systematic extermination by the Schutzstaffel, or the SS. Thousands of other prisoners died during the “death marches” that followed the evacuation of the camp in April of 1945. At that time, approximately 3,000 sick prisoners, along with the doctors and nurses who had stayed behind in the camp, were freed by Soviet and Polish soldiers.

This tour features a visit to the punishment cells, gallows, gas chambers and burial pits located inside the prison. Hear stories of prisoner bravery as well as the chilling atrocities that took place at the camp, which now serves as a national memorial to the prisoners who lived and died here. Your tour ends with a return train trip to Berlin.

This tour was well worth a trip to. I did not know much about this camp but certainly did once I left it. Our guide Nikolai was a very lovely man and really know his history and the knowledge he had was great. He told us a bit about himself also which was interesting and nice to hear. Would advise you to do it but go with a tour guide.

We were so pleased that we took this opportunity and would recommend others to do the same. Brian was our tour guide and he made this day so memorable. He was so knowledgeable and presented the information with such care, we learnt so much. It was thought provoking and handled with dignity. Though l found it emotionally difficult at times I am so glad that we went and would highly recommend that you go if you can.

Jay was such a great tour guide. He has such a great personality and has a wealth of knowledge.
The tour is eye opening and the history is pretty intense but it is a must do.

A wonderful experience with a great 'Irish' tour guide. I had never been to a concentration camp before, and , although sobering, it was tremendous.
