  • Tragic history but well worth the experience. Multiple languages supported for tours with hand radios.
  • Very unkept location. Large line outside to get into the museum so I ended up walking around the structure and you can still enter into the center without paying. It seemed you have to book the museum tour a few days in advance on their website.
  • On Saturday 22 August I spend more than 30 minutes waiting to enter, with a rainy weather and entrance's responsable person didn't have explication for a such long delay to non German speakers. I gave up and I won't repeat the experience.
  • Definitely must see. Never forget what people can do to other people. This is where the ideology is planted..
  • Nice Parks and a Lake surrounding this place. Rent a Boat, walk, play Frisbee or do a BBQ...
