Owner description: More than 100,000 Jews, communists, intellectuals, gypsies and homosexuals were killed by Nazis between 1936 and 1945 in this concentration camp. Some of the buildings have been preserved in their original form including barracks, and a pathology department where Nazis performed medical experiments on the inmates.

A little far out from central Berlin but well worth the journey. Make sure you get an audio guide as there is so much more to be said than what exists on the signs around the camp area. An eye-opener.

Took a tour to see this concentration camp and it was definitely an eye opening experience. I wish we could have spent more time taking everything in but at the same time it was overwhelming see what these men had gone through. My tour guide was very informative and I learnt so many things that I couldn't even imagine could happen. If going to see I suggest going with a tour group so you can get a little more information and these guys are very knowledgeable and can give you even more information about the people who were there.

Jared from Insider Tours led this tour and was especially interesting with his anthropological background which meant that he covered not only the history but put it in context. The memorial itself, as others have noted, is haunting notwithstanding that much of the original site was demolished.

We had a surprising reaction when we told German friends we were visiting the Wall Museum as they asked why we wanted to see the "bad" side of Berlin. No doubt they would be even more surprised and perhaps disappointed that we had visited Sachsenhausen. There were several other tours taking place during our visit in other languages but I heard no one speaking German. It made me wonder how many of the visitors to this site are in fact German as perhaps they do not wish to be reminded of this aspect of their past

It is a very interesting and educative attraction. It is depressing but it is part of history. It is also an opportunity to see a typical German city (Oranienburg).

Excellent tour by Marie from Insider Tour- very knowledgeable in such a heartfelt way.
It was a very sobering experience but I came away totally appreciating what this was about thanks to the very intelligent and caring way that Marie presented everything. Many thanks .
