Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen was originally built to house political opponents of the Nazi regime. Its purpose gradually expanded, and the camp eventually imprisoned ordinary Jews, intellectuals, gypsies, and homosexuals. Some of the original buildings of the camp complex have been preserved in their original form and are now open to the public as a museum. The existing buildings include several prisoner barracks and a pathology department, where Nazi doctors performed medical experiments on the prisoners. You can take part in one of several weekly guided tours offered here, for which no prior registration is necessary. Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Oranienburg Edition.

No me ha gustado nada la empresa del tour. Las personas que trabajan no fueron agradables ni cercanas. La experiencia la salvó nuestro guía, Javier, muy profesional.

Interesante visita guiada por el campo de concentración, donde te explican tanto los antecedentes históricos hasta llegar a la construcción de los campos de concentración, al final de los mismos.

As it was the life inside. The visit lasts 6 hours, 1 hour and a half of roundtrip by train and underground. Then 1, 5km walk 25 minutes walk. Explanations are correct and entertaining, but lead you to mata horse. Barely have time to go to the bathroom or to make any photo. I leave you a few minutes to visit the museums that explain you out and you have to withhold too much information, should go it to explaining along the route of the Museum. Or at least forget the time photos and explanations of them. Overview is made me quite stressful and exhausting visit.

The site is easily accessible from public transport in Berlin (ticket zone C €3.2).
I went with a tour guide, which made the visit a lot more interesting than if I had gone without, I imagine. Many things to see throughout and all very interesting! I wish I had gone in warmer weather so maybe I would have had the will to stay longer and explore it more but it was so cold. Can't imagine how awful it just have been forced to live there, especially in the Berlin winters. A quick half day trip if you're coming from Berlin, would recommend if you have any interest at all in WW2 history!
Very moving site. There are various museums throughout with lots of good information and displays. Obviously a heavy subject, but it is well worth a visit if you have time while in Berlin. Very easy to get to via train. I visited with a tour group and found it very helpful.
Very beautiful pleace, but sad. It is not a Concentration Camp, It is a Memorial of it. The history is very strong. Who's going to Berlin have to visit. The story of Berlin is based on the war. Then it is very important.
We want there on a cold dismal day in December. It really is one of the most chilling experiences of my life. We used a tour group called insider tours, highly recommend. The tour guide named Jarred was incredible, his knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject shone through and mad the whole day an incredible experience.
Very good memorial indeed. I would definitely recommend you to go with a guide. The walking distance from Oranienburg train station is not short. There are no cafe or gift shop.
