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.

  • A very sobering experience with soooo much information. It really needs a day to take it all in. Very worthwhile getting the audio guide and that's the only expense as the museum is free.

  • Very moving experience, very educational and the tour guides are fantastic! Understanding if people need extra time to take the experience in.

  • Loved my experience at this memorial! The place was filled with history and if you're someone who's looking to visit one of the biggest concentration camps in Berlin, don't miss out on this spot.
  • The most haunting place I have ever been to. Some of the most horrifying things humans have ever done to each other happened on this site and other places like it. Nazism and the far right must be defeated again now as much as ever. NEVER AGAIN! Please visit this place to gain a small insight into the horrors of what hatred, right wing politics and division leads to.
