Berlin: Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Tour

7. Berlin: Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Tour

During this guided tour of about 4 hours, we will learn about the daily work of the prisoners and the daily life in a concentration camp through the buildings that have survived to the present day. We will understand the complex history of this place through the different monuments that, for different ideologies and at different times, have been placed at the memorial. Our guides will approach the subject matter of the visit with the utmost respect for the victims. During our visit to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp we will see what is known as Tower A or the main entrance of the prisoners to the camp, presided over by the famous sign on which you can read the motto of all the concentration camps "Arbeit macht Frei" or "Work will set you free". We will enter Barracks 38 and 39, which are in what is known as "Small Camp" where the S.S. crammed all the Jewish prisoners of the camp between 1938 and 1942, and where we can see those famous bunk beds that you see in all the films about the Holocaust. Today, Barracks 38 houses a museum illustrating what life was like for these Jewish prisoners in the camp. Then we will see the Camp Prison or Punishment Cells, which are the original ones, where prisoners were locked up for crimes such as stealing food and where infamous and disproportionate punishments were inflicted. It is common knowledge that during the Nazi era, concentration camp prisoners were experimented on and aberrant practices were carried out in the infirmary barracks and in the morgue. What used to be the prisoner's kitchen has been converted into a museum in which the most important moments of the Sachsenhausen camp are represented and we will see the remains of the terrible Station Z, later dynamited by the Soviets, where the prisoners were cruelly executed. With the defeat of the Nazis in 1945, this Nazi concentration camp became the 50th Special Camp of the Soviets, which is why we will also visit the Soviet memorial from 1961. .... And much more!

Sachsenhausen tour is very educational and emotional as everybody can surely imagine. But it is actually the tour guide who transformers you from the present to the past and makes this place of terror really authentic. Our guide Chris - Canadian young gentleman - has delivered an exceptional experience ( One of the few top quality guided tours we attended in Berlin). Firstly, we learnt significantly more than we expected and it was clear that we could continue for endless hours to learn more and more. Secondly, Chris's passion for history and passing it onto next generation is simply admirable and also contagious! Lastly, Chris's humour also greatly contributed to a fabulous memorable tour. Definitely recommend for everybody visiting Berlin! I would actually say it is a 'Must do' that helps you to see a human being and life from different perspective! Thank you so much!

Staff very helpful. Covered a lot of the city. Audio stories were interesting and factual. Pick up and drop off spots throughout the city.
