Memorial And Museum Sachsenhausen - Review

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

  • Thought provoking trip. Travelled with Insider Tours. Would highly recommend this trip to all. Visited with my 15 year old son who is studying A level history next year. We found the visit thoroughly thought provoking and the advantage of being with a guide provided us with additional context and stories of some of the people who were kept there, together with stories of some of the many uses of the camp through the years. This visit will stay with me forever.

  • Sachsenhausen is a good experience. Everyone should visit a concentration camp in their lifetime and Sachsenhausen is a good one. The displays & museums are full of information and very compelling. You could spend the entire day here just reading everything. Naturally it's not a great place for kids. Ours are too wiggly and don't understand where we're at anyways. I strongly suggest against the guided tour. We did one in English and our tour guide just told us some surface level stuff that we could have just read, and moved us along too quickly to really experience the displays and memorials. So you could pay a fraction of the price for the audio guide and then do it at your own pace which would be a much better experience. It's not a bad walk from the train station if you don't want to wait for the infrequent bus.

  • What an incredible experience. Our guide was Jamie (male) he was extremely knowledgeable a mesmerizing speaker and very personable, traits which are not unique for a tour guide I'm certain, however because you've already paid your money quite fortuitous, he made the tour something I will never forget. The unfortunate thing is you can't choose your guide, he's assigned to your group, ours was the english speaking group. There are a few tours going on simultaneously (you'll see as you walk the grounds) being conducted in several different languages. The tour is quite lengthy (6 hours from start to finish) so pack a lunch because there are no places to purchase food or liquid.

  • Can't recommend this enough, especially if you love history! If I could choose one place to go close to Berlin, it would be Sachsenhausen! Of course, it isn't for everyone. If you don't want to read/hear about the SS's cruelty, you may want to go to a happier place. But even if it was a little sad, I found it fascinating! The audio guides are great, and there is a lot of information all around! Dark history, but well worth it!

  • It would be great for a tour but when left to your own devices it simply makes you want to fall asleep. There is barely anything left to show for the camp and what there is has just been painted over and piled with information boards. Yes it is interesting and they are filled with history but there is no structure and too much to take in. After reading everything you fall asleep from boredom and you brain hurts. At place with such a famous history and many stories you would think there would be a more eventful or entertaining way of displaying such a history but no, just words and words which become meaningless. With the modern generation I dread to see the future of this place which just seems an archive of student essays.
