Private Tour: Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial from Berlin

6 h
About this activity
During the 1936 Olympics, hosted by Nazi Germany, slave laborers were forced to build a new concentration camp just north of Berlin, intended to hold the Nazis’ political enemies. This camp was Sachsenhausen, and during the next decade some 200,000 people were imprisoned within the camp before it was evacuated by the Soviets in 1945. For another five years, the Soviets used the camp to imprison 60,000 war criminals, including Nazis and Nazi collaborators.

On this tour, you'll explore the Sachsenhausen memorial site with a private guide. See the cells, execution grounds, crematorium, pathology laboratory, hospital and other sites, and learn about the camp's history, those imprisoned here and why Nazi architects considered Sachsenhausen to have the ideal structure for a concentration camp.

All private tour guides have their own special knowledge of the history of Sachsenhausen and are experienced in unraveling the complex history of World War II and the Holocaust, and are licensed and trained by official memorial authority.

Walid, our guide, was amazing and made the day enjoyable and educational for everyone in our 7 person group. His sense of humor, flexibility, and commitment to make sure everyone was engaged were very much appreciated. Even though we weren't staying at a traditional hotel, Walid still found our Airbnb and started our day from there. A few people in our group would have had difficulty with all the walking this tour requires so Walid helped us out by getting a taxi to and from the train station in Oranienberg. Don't forget to pack your lunch and prepare for the day as amenities are a little scarce during most of the day. That said, if you are prepared you will find this tour to be an engaging and thoughtful experience. We were thankful to have Walid as our tour guide and would recommend him to anyone. Thanks for a great day Walid! Will and Amanda Leque

This was a very moving, somber experience but a must for everyone to see. Our guide was very informative and knowledgeable. He picked us up at our hotel, had subway passes for us and brought us back to our hotel. Good thing too because I would not,have been able to find the camp as there was. O signage once we got to the town. Worth the money.

Our tour guide, Taylor was amazing. He knew so much. We couldn't have asked for a better explanation of nazi Germany's rise and the use of concentration camps. We were given time to look to explore the exhibits but Taylor was always there to answer our questions. Station Z was chilling.
