Discover the SS world view of humanity on the Sachsenhausen Tour

As the Nazi’s watched their preconceptions of a superior race shattered by Jesse Owens in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, they were already underway constructing the administrative center of concentration camps in Oranienburg, which would eventually become the Sachsenhausen German concentration camp. The Sachsenhausen Tour is the best way to learn about the history, savagery, and horror of the Holocaust on a single trip to Berlin. Knowledgeable tour guides fluent in English explain why more than two hundred thousand humans were imprisoned there, with more than a quarter of them ultimately perishing during World War II. Learn on the Sachsenhausen Tour why Nazi architects chose the location as the ideal structure for a concentration camp, and how it was used as a training ground of the Holocaust. Discover the harsh realities of life in the German concentration camp. From starvation to disease, forced labor in one of the world’s largest brickworks or as subjects of systematic extermination and torture of the SS, you will see it all. Sachsenhausen Tour guides lead you past the ghastly crematorium, the bloody execution grounds, the pathology laboratory and “hospital” where victims were brutally experimented on. And finally the putrid "pit," where victims were simply thrown into to rot. Nauseating and informative all-in-one, the Sachsenhausen Tour will leave you wiser, saddened, and thoughtful when you hear about the concentration camps and their conditions.

" Well worth the visit "
5 out of 5 stars
Sarah was very good
" Very moving experience with an excellent guide. "
5 out of 5 stars
Martin was our English speaking guide and was full of knowledge on the camp. A very moving experience which can't be described without experiencing it yourself. The walking tour was very good but don't expect unlimited time to view the various museums as timing is tight and there is a lot to see. Excellent tour.
" Josh was fantastic "
5 out of 5 stars
So knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Germany. His work is a great service to the stories of the holocaust. A must see experience.
" Interesting and informative. "
4 out of 5 stars
Tells a lot about pre war camps and how they evolved. Be great for someone to go to 'before' visiting the death camps at a later date. Whatever you do wear very comfy shoes, there is a lot od walking and standing.

" Very interesting tour and good guide "
5 out of 5 stars
Definetly recommended. Campbell our tour guide was the best guide I’ve ever had. So much information can be hard to take in during a few hours but he made everything very intersting and easy to listen too.
" to see what went on 70 odd years ago and to realise it is still happening today is just heartbreaking "
4 out of 5 stars
Pip was the most engaging of tour guides, her detailed knowledge of her subject and ability to bring that knowledge to life was truly humbling. i have visited other camps and to realise that this was a logistical exercise in cost control using human life as a commodity was truly chilling. The fact that this "factory" was occurring in the centre of a village known to everyone who was complicit in its actions acts as a lesson, that by turning a blind eye to what is under our noses is no excuse!!
" Sachsenhausen Visit : 8 December 2017 "
5 out of 5 stars
I booked this visit on behalf of my wife and myself, together with three friends. The visit was extremely interesting, not least because of the excellent account of the background to the camp's establishment and of its operation given by Taylor. He was an outstandingly effective guide who demonstrated an encyclopaedic knowledge of his subject and communicated the message with great conviction. The weather conditions were reasonable, the cold wind being the principal contributor, plus a brief shower. The walking distances involved were not apparent in advance and my wife felt that she suffered as a consequence but still felt that the effort was well worthwhile. We should be happy to recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in the country's history and the conditions that led to the rise of the Nazis before the war, the atrocities for which they were responsible during the war and role of the camp after the war.
" A day I will long remember "

Your guide Campbell was excellent. Knowledge on history, background for WW2, the Sachsenhausen concentration Camp, he knew a lot of details, and also could give perspective on it all. And a very cordial person easy to talk to. My best recommendation.
