Take a tour of the notorious Sachsenhausen concentration camp, located just outside Berlin. This thought-provoking half-day tour offers a crisp picture of life under the cruel regime of the Nazis.
What to Expect
Sachsenhausen, located just outside Berlin's city limits, is now an evocative memorial to the Holocaust and a haunting reminder of Berlin's darkest days. At this former concentration camp visitors will get to see lots of compelling reminders of evil committed in the name of the Nazi party.
The Sachsenhausen tour will visit all the remaining buildings such as Watchtower A, Gestapo “T” prison, the Casino and the commandant's house. There is a respectful memorial commemorating the Death March and compelling exhibitions detailing prisoners' daily routines and SS guard training. Although not as well known as other camps such as Auschwitz, much of it is still intact and it was the main center for the Nazi concentration camp system.
Sachsenhausen was used as a prison after the war by the Soviets and in 1992 it was the scene for a neo-Nazi arson attack. This is a thought-provoking five-hour tour and a percentage of the tour's profits goes towards upkeep of the memorial.
