Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Tour from Berlin

Overview
Visit the former Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp on a memorial tour from Berlin. A way to honor the survivors and remember the victims of the Nazi regime, the tour explores the former notorious camp, which became the main concentration camp in the Berlin area. Learn the stories of the prisoners and see key sites including the cells with a professional guide.
What to Expect
Take a tour of the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp with The Original Berlin Concentration Camp Memorial Tour. Discover the brutal history of the facility that was primarily used for political prisoners but also the administrative center of the Nazi concentration cap system. Our informative guides expose the grim realities of life and death at Sachsenhausen. Join us on a short train ride just out side of Berlin to this desolate reminder of the worst part of Human History. We will explain stories of tragedy and triumph. Explain how everyday life was in the camp, and some of the tactics used here. Although this is a very sobering and somber tour we also like to celebrate some of the strong personalities survivors and victims that suffered here but who’s actions bring inspiration to this day!
Lying just outside Berlin, Sachsenhausen was the first purpose built camp established under Heinrich Himmler. Originally conceived as a place to subjugate enemies of the Nazi’s, some 200,000 people were imprisoned here and subjected to systematic torture, starvation, forced labor and some of the worst living conditions. As you tour the memorial you will uncover the truths about the camp where 50,000 people were brutally murdered by the Nazi’s and 60,000 held captive until 1950 during the Soviet era. Today the Sachsenhausen Memorial stands as a reminder to the horrors of the 20th century.

Overwhelming but a great tour

Our tour guide Mike was really informative, articulate and personable. It was a somber experience, but Sachsenhausen is worth the visit

Impressive site, harrowing history, terrible guide.

We paid for an organised guide with a guy called Miguel, who although having an amazing amount of knowledge in his head was absolutely terrible at delivering it. He was rambling, decided that he wanted to give a FULL history of Europe, would jump around...More
