The Basics

Inside Sachsenhausen, a collection of exhibits allow you to explore sites such as the barracks, prison, kitchen, and commandant’s offices. While entry to Sachsenhausen is free, a guided tour provides additional insight into the history of Nazi Germany and further illuminates the lives of prisoners who were once held at the camp. Most tours of the solemn memorial site leave from Berlin, including private and small-group excursions that offer a personalized experience.

Must do trip and a guide is needed
From start to finish our tour guide Nickolai was amazing and so informative. This is a must do tour but is not an easy one to get your head around emotionally but I think we all know this. If you have a few days in Berlin I highly recommend

The Memorial Tour: Visit to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp (licensed guide)
Our guide Paul's experience and knowledge was great! Would be good if he wore a uniform or something less casual so we could identify him. But he knows so much! He shared so much.

The Memorial Tour: Visit to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp (licensed guide)
The actual tour was excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his subject.. and able to fully and comprehensively answer all questions. I would thoroughly recommend it. My review is for the actual tour not the administration. The first booking was cancelled the night before which was inconvenient for a tourist with limited time.

Sachsenhausen-Oranienburg Memorial Tour From Berlin
I’d highly recommend this moving, powerful and really insightful tour. Ernestina was a thoughtful guide who was thoroughly versed on the site’s history (and other areas of Berlin’s history). She was business-like, efficient, and very friendly (happy to answer all questions to a high degree) and had curated a really special tour for the group. She also looked out for the welfare of the group - it is a particularly emotional draining day. I would happily take any of her tours again.

Nicholi was an excellent tour guide for this moving memorial. It is an important but difficult place to go and our guide was able to show us the concentration camp with compassion and knowledge.

Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp History

The camp was built by prisoners in the summer of 1936 and was used to train SS officers who went on to command other Nazi concentration camps. A total of 105,000 people died at Sachsenhausen-Oranienburg during World War II, and in January 1945, just months before the site was liberated by the Allies in April, more than 65,000 men and women prisoners were here.
