Retrace the path taken by the prisoners of war during WWII and the Nazi regime on a private group visit to the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. Though the Nazis committed horrific atrocities here, today, it's a poignant memorial to commemorate those who suffered. As you explore the camp with your knowledgeable multilingual guide, learn about the past and mistakes never to be repeated again.

What to Expect

The tour includes a detailed exploration of all sections of the concentration camp. Learn about the 'perfect architectural design' of the camp by SS Heinrich Himmler. Pass through the Arbeit Macht Frei sign on the gates of Guard Tower A, and tread the same paths the prisoners marched on. Visit exhibitions such as the camp kitchen, where you can see the uniforms worn by the prisoners. See what remains of 'Station Z', the execution center of the camp, including the gas chambers and the 'neck shot device'. Your guide will tell you stories about how prisoners of war were brought here in the 1940s, mostly political opponents of the Nazi regime.
