Full description

Discover the dark history of the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, a model and training camp, on this day tour from Berlin. Explore the memorial site and educational exhibitions with a guide and hear about the causes and consequences of Nazi extremism.

Your tour begins with a pickup from your accommodation in Berlin. Meet your private driver outside your hotel and enjoy a comfortable, air-conditioned ride to Sachsenhausen.

Upon arrival at the Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen, join your guide on a private tour. See the Command Headquarters, prisoners’ barracks, and the site of the first crematorium. Continue to the Mass Grave for Concentration Camp Victims, burial grounds, and several memorials.

Next, head to the museum. Walkthrough its exhibits on the camp’s operations under the Nazis and Soviets, which expose the way they tortured and executed their prisoners of war. Among the inmates, find names of political prisoners such as Joseph Stalin’s oldest son, the penultimate PM of France, and the family of the Crown Prince of Bavaria.

Learn which groups the Nazis and Soviets brought to Sachsenhausen, including Jehovah's Witnesses, Soviet POWs, Polish people, Jewish people, members of the LGBTQ community, and Freemasons.

Return to Berlin with your driver with a deeper understanding of the atrocities committed by the Nazis and the Soviets at Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. Choose between two versions of this tour. In the fully-guided option, travel with your guide from Berlin, and hear insights and commentary as you drive to Sachsenhausen.
