Begin your tour with a guide meet and greet at Zoologischer Garten train station or Hackescher Markt train station. Ride to the Sachsenhausen Memorial and Museum in Oranienburg.

More than 200,000 people were imprisoned in Sachsenhausen between 1936 and 1945. At first, the prisoners were primarily political opponents of the Nazi regime. However, people that were defined by the National Socialists as racially or biologically inferior were later included.

By 1939, there were a large number of citizens from the occupied European states imprisoned here. Tens of thousands of people died of starvation, disease, forced labor and mistreatment, or they were victims of the systematic extermination by the Schutzstaffel, or the SS. Thousands of other prisoners died during the “death marches” that followed the evacuation of the camp in April of 1945. At that time, approximately 3,000 sick prisoners, along with the doctors and nurses who had stayed behind in the camp, were freed by Soviet and Polish soldiers.

This tour features a visit to the punishment cells, gallows, gas chambers and burial pits located inside the prison. Hear stories of prisoner bravery as well as the chilling atrocities that took place at the camp, which now serves as a national memorial to the prisoners who lived and died here. Your tour ends with a return train trip to Berlin.

Excellent tour! Very sobering and thought provoking. Tour organization was awesome very easy. They meet at a central location and escort us to train to meet our guide. A bit of a walk thru the town once we arrived but it was great! Guide Jamie was awesome!

Mike was superb. Enthusiastic, but most importantly, knowledgeable. He didn't hold back on sharing the horror or in acknowledging the efforts of Germans to properly memorialize the victims and events.

Our tour guide Pip was fantastic! Her knowledge and understanding of Sachsenhausen was incredible and without bias. The group size was ideal. The experience was daunting and haunting, and it helped to reinforce how I felt about this part of world history.

Great guide

Our guide was Ariel and he was great, very knowledgable and kept stopping to give us info about parts of the camp. We thought the price was great until we realised entry to the camp is actually free - but at least we had Ariel. The only downside was that Ariel rushed us around the site so we didn’t get chance to explore properly and look at all the parts, it would improve the experience if visitors were given the option of exploring on their own at the end of the guided tour, or going back to the centre of Berlin with the guide as otherwise you don’t get the chance to see everything. Top tip if visiting in winter - layer up and wear a hat and gloves as the sites very exposed and extremely cold!!

A humanity pilgrimage

This was an eye-opener experience, only next step to what happened to the exterminated victims after Auchswitz and Birkenaeau tours ... It is a sort of humanity pilgrimage that every human being should understake as a mark of respect and ensure understanding of their action in future and the latter's impact that might be on all humanity. I highly recommend. Our guide John was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about this subject and made the visit all the more interesting for all of us. He took good care of guiding us to our destinations even after the visit got over. Thanks john.

Our visit to Saschenhausen was poignant and shuddering in terms of the scale of the cruelty during WW2. Nikolai, our guide was very knowledgeable and set the correct tone for our visit. In terms of logistics, the marketing could be clearer in terms of length of visit and the amount of walking entailed. Could prove a difficult visit for the elderly and infirm.

John was our tour guide, I had been to the camp previously but still learnt so much from John. Very interesting tour. It was the first time to Berlin for the rest of my party, they all enjoyed the tour, it was very informative. He spoke to us all individually as well while we was travelling.
