Full description
Take a tour of the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp on this half-day tour from Berlin. Learn about the history of the facility that was once used for political prisoners but also served as the administrative center of the Nazi concentration camp system. You’ll take a short train ride to the outskirts of Berlin to this desolate reminder of one of the worst eras in human history. Walk through the camp as your guide describes the daily life of prisoners and explains the tactics of control used by the Nazis. Hear stories of tragedy and triumph, and learn about everyday life in the camp and some of the tactics used by the Nazis. Although this is a very sobering and somber tour you will also have a chance to remember the strong personalities of victims and survivors, whose actions still provide inspiration today.

Interesting and impressive

A very important visit to understand how the oppressive strategy towards political opponents and the "different" ones not included in the schemes and logic of the Third Reich began. A long preparatory phase for planning the Holocaust. One of the many places that everyone should visit not to forget how easy it is to fall back into the mistakes of history.

Unfortunately our Guide Miguel was not well presented nor did he provide information in a systematic, easily understandable way. It was obvious he knew a lot about Nazi history etc but he was erratic and did not provide us with an opportunity where we were about to take full advantage of the experience.

This company is a third party. We had our trip cancelled and no one informed us about the cancellation. We waited for 45 mins in a hostel which was the meeting place. We found a guide who was dealing with another tour, we asked where our guide was? They text the person Who was supposed to be taking us and they replied, there was only one person who has booked and I am sick. We then had to find an alternative company who did manage to take us on the trip. I would not recommend using this company.
