Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen was originally built to house political opponents of the Nazi regime. Its purpose gradually expanded, and the camp eventually imprisoned ordinary Jews, intellectuals, gypsies, and homosexuals. Some of the original buildings of the camp complex have been preserved in their original form and are now open to the public as a museum. The existing buildings include several prisoner barracks and a pathology department, where Nazi doctors performed medical experiments on the prisoners. You can take part in one of several weekly guided tours offered here, for which no prior registration is necessary. Memorial and Museum Sachsenhausen is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

Did a guided tour to this place. The sorrow is high and i think the world should really learn from the sad past and promote peace, tolerance and respect. We should do everything we can to really say..... more »
Visited here in Sept 2020, following social distancing rules, some very interesting and upsetting displays, a hollow reminder to what took place all those years ago. more »
Very interesting and packed full of history and information. Do remember to wear / bring decent walking shoes and appropriate clothing. Definitely worth seeing and please pay a donation for up keep and running of the place 🇧🇪🖤
Brilliant and eye opening place to visit. It’s free to visit and three euro for an audio tour. They have respected the victims of this tragic historical site and given informative facts throughout.
