  • Our tour of the Mauthausen Work Camp was a sobering reminder of the Horrific things that were done to the prisoners during there stay. The tour was very good, by a well informed guide.

  • Very impressive place to visit. It is well documented. The guide is an app on the phone. It works excellent. It really shows the atmosphere of the time the quarry and camp were a bad place to be. Bring some good walking shoes, read the Wikipedia and don't forget to drive down to see the stairs and quarry from below.
  • it's a really impressive place to visit, it's well maintained. The memorial park, you'll walk through before you enter the camp, is beautiful. You can also download the app where you can see the route and get an audio at different places in the camp that'll give you more information about the very spot you're standing at. I'm glad I visited Mauthausen Memorial, it's a must.
  • Very impressive. The guide was knowledgeable and kind. If I had a question I would get a satisfying answer. Only the weather was bad but befitting the surrounding. For every person a must visit, especially considering the topic.
  • A very sobering experience! Made all the more so as the weather was rainy and overcast. Well maintained.
  • So much memories in this place, just take a strong heart in discovering and trying to what happened in this place :)
