Surrounded by beautiful farm land and even a prisoner dug canal that connects to the Elbe River this camp is quite large. There are buildings still standing and every location is complete with its own information marker. There is a building you can go into that is used to showcase tools and work prisoners were required to do. In this... More

Much smaller than other camps, but deeply connected to Hamburgs history. Recommended to arrive by car. Public transportation rare.

The Neuengamme concentration camp was a German concentration camp, established in 1938 by the SS near the village of Neuengamme in the Bergedorf district of Hamburg, Germany. The Nazi operated the camp from 1938 to 1945. During that period, it interred an estimated 106,000 prisoners at the main camp and its approximately 87 sub camps. More than half of them... More

Huge place with several buildings. All sections are well explained. Sad, tough but has to be seen. A little bit far from the city but it is worth a visit. Amazing historical work behind. No fee but free offers.

This memorial is close to Hamburg and was used by the NAZIs as a concentration camp for the Hamburg area. Today it is a well preserved memorial.

We spent 4 hours on the grounds in August. This is a memorial at a concentration camp site about half an hour outside of Hamburg. The grounds themselves contain a large exhibit area, bookstore, etc. Nearby is a memorial obelisk and House of Memories. Very emotional experience. I'd suggest good footwear - some of the grounds are over crushed rock.

A historic site that present and future generations should know about. The Nazi - story is horrible and should be told and shown to everybody so that man kind do not forget these misdeeds.

Its a collection of memorabilia and photos of the history of the what happened in the past - in the Concentration Camp. Its a small one but situated in a small nice town.

I enjoyed a guided tour from Hamburg. The present site is now a memorial to the 90,000 souls (men) that perished there before and during WWII. The life expectancy was 2 months for a prisoner, which was 2 months longer that those at the death camps. Initially bricks were produced, later small arms. The site is quite large, in the... More

Visiting this concentration camp was an interesting and sobering experience, but you really need a tour guide to get the most out of it. We were there on an excursion from our Princess cruise ship, but the guided tour we paid for didn't happen.
