Over 30,000 people died at Flossenburg and it is a sombre reminder of the horrors of war. It is not as large in area as some other concentration camps, but still you get a real sense of the suffering that took place there. The camp...More

We visited the Memorial on a Sunday morning. There is a lot of walking involved but it was well worth it. Bring cash for Museum cafe!

There is not much left anymore from the original camp. Only some watch towers, the commanders office, laundry etcetera. The quarry is some 3 miles away from the camp. The museum is excellent with a lot of information about the wrong doings during World War...More

This is a must visit. It doesn't cost anything to pay your respects. There is also an old stone fortress that you can visit that overlooks the camp. Lots of information and never busy.

There are some many of these camps in Germany and other countries. This community has done a wonder job in bringing history back for people to visit and learn from.

A taxi would be expensive as it's about 143km. Do you have an international license to rent a car? If you download the DB Navigator app, it will tell you the train schedule. You can google Bamberg to Flossenburg and it will... More

The museum is located inside the concentration camp. I would plan for at least half a day to view everything. We did not take the tour, everything is well documented and available in English. We also visited Dachau, which is... More
