Furstenberg is just an hour by train from Berlin, then a 2.5km walk to the Ravensbrucke memorial site. The former camp site is in a beautiful location near the lake and forest, which only adds to the horror of the stories it holds. This was...More

I went Ravensbruck for a research project during early spring. It was an emotionally difficult experience. A butterfly was stuck in one of the bunkers, used as slave-labouring factory during the Nazi-era. I was close to start crying, I could not leave the butterfly to...More

Having read Sarah Helm's incredible book about Ravensbruck we were determined to visit this memorial while we were staying in nearby Berlin. We are really pleased that we made the time to go because the experience that we had at Ravensbruck was the experience that...More

Having been somewhat overshadowed by some of better-known camps such as Auschwitz, I think Ravensbrück is definitely a 'must' to visit, most especially because women's narratives in war are so often lost or ignored. When I read Sarah Helm's 2015 book "Ravensbrück: Life and Death...More

Ravensbruck tends to be less well-known than other concentration camps, yet it is a mere 50 miles or so north of Berlin, about an hour by train. This was the camp, and often final destination for women, and whilst a professional guide might be useful...More

Visited with a school class. It is difficult to comprehend how people can be so cruel. The guide explained that the exhibition was brand new. There are many good posters in both english and german. Worth visiting.

There is no describing the horror of this place which remains mostly intact because it was used as a soviet military base for many years after the war. Drawings and comments by women who were interned here cannot easily be erased from one's memory

I am reading an excellent 800+ page book by Sarah Helm now after visiting this sobering historic site. Fewer people know of it but it is worthwhile to find it and learn who was held in this labor camp where Seimen's had a factory. There...More

Found this place as we cycled Berlin-Copenhagen, well worth an hour or two to see this memorial (you can cycle around the grounds) which is extremely well done. Chilling to think what happened here.

I visited Ravensbruck women's concentration camp on a very cold and snowy day, which brought home to me some of the conditions the inmates must have suffered. Like previous comments, not much is left of the original camp. However, the exhibition and in particular the...More

Yes, there are taxis. Sometimes there is one waiting near the station. There is also a bus which takes you part way. The information centre at the memorial will call you a taxi to return to the station.

You can just show up and walk around - Ravensbruck isn't busy like some of the other camps that are close to major German and Polish cities. Entry is free, but you can pay a few Euro for the audioguide (which was very good... More
