Opened for tourist in the year 1961, this site has a museum, a memorial and a concentration camp from the Nazi era to showcase. It is an overwhelming place, in terms of the history and the gory past that it hides. The site has witnessed years of military use. The memorial also encompasses a site used as a camp, though most of it was under military possession till the year 1990. The museum displays the daily life of the camp, the struggles of the prisoners, their opposition and their final liberation. There is the concentration camp as well, which is again a disheartening site, in terms of the stories it tells through its grey walls and cells. It is said that not just the Jews but anyone who showed resistance or disagreed with the Nazis were condemned to this concentration camp. You can go for guided tours to this place. The unfortunate part is that the Germans were as good in their architecture and engineering as they were in killing. Hence, the place can be unsettling for some.

Memorial And Museum Sachsenhausen, Oranienburg Reviews - Write a Review
A very interesting site. I recommend to go on a good guided tour because the sire is huge and difficult to comprehend on one's own.
Really worth a visit. Avoid tour guides from Berlin if possible. I took the insider tour and felt it was rushed through. Start early and reach by 10. You will need good 5 hours with a half an hour break. Enormous amount of detailing already exists and you could take a audio guide if you like. Go to the cinema theatre for a half an hour movie too. I allowed the tour company to return back and stayed another two hours to get a feel for the place.
Definitely worth a visit. You cannot fully grasp what the holocaust is until you go to one of these places and realize that people really died there. For simple family visitors, the audio guide has to much information. A tour guide or simply reading the astonishing amount of information on the wall is more than enough!
Incredible place to visit: very interesting with a lot of information. The entry fee is free and the audio tour is only 3 euros. It's definitely worth going for the audio tour, as it has a lot of extra information. We spend 6 hours there, but there is much more to see, so we could've easily spend another day there.
Visited 2016. Close to Berlin. Easy public transportation. Bring drink and snack. Take brake. Very interesting. Thoughtprovoking. Give yourself some time. Sad history. At least 3 mentionings of Jehovah's witnesses who were imprisoned/executed here.
