With this bus tour to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial, our professional, English-speaking guide will provide a running commentary on the way, preparing you for the tour through Sachsenhausen with background information on the early years of the Nazi camp system. Drive through Oranienburg, the town where the camp was built and learn about how much the locals knew.

Sachsenhausen- the first concentration camp that was purposely built, opened in 1936 and was created to control, and intimdate the prisoners with brutal efficiency.
Enter the old barracks, learn about daily life for the inmates of the camp, and how slave labour, starvation, disease, torture and death were a part of daily life.
See where people were gassed, shot, or hanged by the brutal SS guards.
See the small prison, pathology centre, infirmaries where experimentation took place and sites of slave labour.

For every ticket sold we donate €2 towards the upkeep and future restoration of the former concentration camp
