What to expect
Meet your guide and group at the Hackescher Markt S-Bahn station in Berlin in time for your train’s departure. On the way to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, take in the scenery and listen to an orientation to the somber sights you are about to encounter.  Once you arrive, take off on a walking tour of the site. Your visit will be shaped by the sensitive and illuminating commentary from your guide, who will paint a picture of the daily lives of more than 200,000 people who spent time there.  Learn important background history of the site as you walk through the the Jewish Barrack, the execution grounds and crematorium, the Appellplatz parade ground, the punishment cells, camp hospital, Station Z, and the Pathology Laboratory. Set against the context of the larger Holocaust and the activities of the Third Reich, this tour will help you gain a wider understanding of the events of that time period. Return to Berlin via train, with plenty of time to ask questions of your guide on the way back.

Sachsenhausen with our fantastic guide Wouter
Jan 2020
Our guide for the visit was Wouter and he is a fantastic person to be leading the tour. Both knowledgeable and articulate, Wouter was interesting to listen to from the time we met him in the city centre to the time of dispersing at the end.
We thoroughly recommend the tour itself. It is harrowing and a reminder of the horrors that occurred there, but also stands as a living representation of something that should never be repeated.
Any short visit to Berlin should include this tour.
We were in Berlin before the Covid issues started, so have no comment regarding the adherence to guidelines associated with it.

Tour was cancelled but nobody told me
Jul 2020 • Solo
I went to the right meeting point at the right time but nobody showd up. Later just received letter saying"sorry for the cancellation".
I was so much looking forward to this tour because maybe I won't be able to go to Berlin ever again. Can't explain how disappointed I am.

Hi, I am sorry but it seems like you posted your review to a wrong business. We do not sell any Sachsenhausen Ticket since March ( tour operators are not allowed there until August as well) . We did get 4 bookings from a Scandinavian travel agency that still sells tickets for Sachsenhausen and are not replying to our mails as well but these customers have been contacted by us directly and informed about their Tour 1-2 weeks prior to the Tour and confirmed as well

Sachsenhausen with Wouter
Mar 2020 • Couples
This was my husbands and mine first city break and our first tour and first concentration camp so I was a little apprehensive. I needn’t have been. Wouter was friendly and so, so knowledgeable. He didn’t just repeat facts he delivered the tour with emphatic knowledge
Great tour.
Wouter was great.

Mar 2020 • Couples
Wouter was an excellent guide, very friendly and knowledgeable. The camp itself is thought provoking, eerie and emotional. For anyone who wants to know more or try to understand a side the war that maybe doesn’t get discussed enough, we recommend taking this tour as having someone like Wouter with you helps put things into context and can answer your questions. His knowledge of German history was really helpful.

Very interesting and educational tour
Our tour guide was Martin, who was very knowledgeable about the camp, the war and the surrounding areas. It's hard to say you enjoyed a trip around a place like this but it was well worth the visit

Our trip to Sachsenhausen was excellent. From start to finish the trip was very well organised.Our guide was great and made the trip very interesting. Had to get a train to the camp from our meeting place but the German transport system is fantastic and cheap. Well worth the money and would recommend.
