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, Oranienburg Edition.

I recommend the tour with guide or with audio guide, there are several details and backstage of the story that one can let go without their help. A sad place, with a horrific history, but still it is peaceful and relatively beautiful. Don't forget to buy the ABC ticket if you go by train.

I totally recommend it.
Detailed account of the Holocaust with many biographies of people from both the Nazi and the victim sides. Be prepared to deal with very stuffy and warm exhibit areas with no AC. Only occasional benches available for resting. Be prepared for long walks. I hope no Jewish spirits are going home with me... 😬
Free of charge museum and concentration camp. Very informative with comprehensive history findings. Definitely worth a visit and understand the cruelty. Can get a device with audio description on each spot. Very interesting device and easy to use. Overall the place is nice to learn more. Quite close to Berlin, around an hour ride of train, walk around half an hour from train station to site
