Berlin Sachsenhausen Tour: Join us for a one of kind tour event on an in-depth one of a kind visit to Sachsenhausen! This is the Birchy’s Berlin’s Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Tour. Concentration camps were a key instrument in the Nazis regime of terror, and the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp was unique. The camp was the first purpose-built concentration camp within the Third Reich and the closest one to Berlin. It is also one of the most visited World War Two concentration camps in the world.

This tour is a complete visit to the memorial camp. The tour starts in Berlin City Center, where you will meet your guide, Aaron. After that we take a short train ride out to the Sachsenhausen Camp Memorial.

Aaron has held an Official Certified Sachsenhausen Tour Guide License for many years and has partaken in numerous courses as well as trained other Berlin Guides. His experience and one of a kind historical knowledge of Sachsenhausen makes this tour like no other! 

Join Birchy or one of our expert guides on a public tour as we head to the north of Berlin and visit what was the closest concentration camp to the capital of the Third Reich, The Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp.

We will look at the way the concentration camps system developed from ad-hoc prisons into purpose-built facilities and look at the multitude of functions, crimes, experimentation, murder and mass murder that occurred within (and sometimes beyond) the confines of the camp from the summer of 1936 - until its liberation in late April 1945.

We will look at the changing prisoner demographic in the lead up to and into the Second World,
