Description

Central to the network of inhumane concentration camps, Sachsenhausen was also an SS training facility. Learn of its atrocities and gain historical perspective on its Nazi and Soviet use. This full-day tour offers poignant insight into one of the 20th century’s most profound brutalities.

On the fringes of a national park lies the infamous site of Sachsenhausen. Incarcerating primarily political prisoners, the camp saw the deaths of 30,000 people. Witness its preserved barracks and sparse living conditions, observe the remains of the hugely emotive execution facilities, and begin to grasp the magnitude of the crimes committed here.

Learn about the daily life of its prisoners and about its counterfeit currency operation, the largest ever seen and a Nazi strategy to affect the economies of the allied forces. Hear how the horrors continued after WWII as the Soviets commandeered it for their own undesirable means.

Pause for thought at the memorial, contemplating the harrowing sights and remembering the tens of thousands of lives lost in the pursuit of one man’s perverse ideal.

This was a very informative day but I would strongly recommend you do this without a guide. It will cost you about 3 euros to enter and you get a handheld device and you can spend as much time in the exhibitions than you would with a guide. With so much to see, I felt rushed and didn’t see everything. You can walk from the station to the camp and takes 20 minutes.

The guide, Martin, was very good. Very knowledgeable about the area, having grown up nearby. He didn't spare us the reality of what went on in the camp but also looked at how the East German/Soviet regime chose to play down the suffering of anyone other than communists there. A very good tour for those who want to understand something real about recent history.

Booked this walk & at first was a little sceptical, because the price was so low, compared to some other companies. However, that scepticism soon disappeared when I met our guide, a young man from Canada called Chris. Chris had an absolute wealth of knowledge, which he delivered to our mixed group in a very passionate & enthusiastic manner. He really took care of the group, so not only a very clever young man, but also a ‘people’s person’. He answered all questions to the best of his knowledge & honestly. I myself work as a Battlefield Tour guide, I had never visited this site before & I would have no hesitation in recommending both this company & ‘Canadian Chris’ as a guide.
