Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Walking Tour submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
We did book (and pay) for this tour, but unfortunately arrived at the meeting place too late, due to unfamiliarity with the U and S-bahn systems! (Remedied by a sharp learning curve!) Another guide for a different tour group tried to link us up - but to no avail. So we took ourselves to Oranienburg independently and then on to Sachsenhausen. Very glad we did - very worthwhile visit and as expected extremely thought-provoking. Can't really rate the group experience but can definitely recommend the visit.Reviewed by: John R, United Kingdom, June 2013
Very chilling yet totally fascinating. We had johnny as our guide who was great. Amazing day well spent. I would say put this walking tour at the top of your list of things to do when visiting BerlinReviewed by: Lee M, New Zealand, May 2013
We were so glad we had Torben as our guide, especially compared to how much less complete, interesting, and informative we think the experience would have been as a self-guided or audio tour. In addition to his thorough and balanced insights as an actual historian himself, our guide's knowledge gave a well rounded perspective on time period as a whole! Also, his deft gauging of our interests (and energy level) enabled him to "triage" visits to the areas and exhibits of the camp in a way that matched our group's pace while providing thorough coverage--a great skill in such a long and overwhelmingly rich walking tour. We only wish we had more days in Berlin to enjoy other walking tours he leads.Reviewed by: Daniel B, May 2013
we took this tour in april and were glad we took the tour rather than doing it on our own. you will learn so much more with the tour. our guide, ryan, was fantastic. he knew so much and shared it so well! i will highly recommend taking this tour to anyone.
A very moving and humbling experience. As a younger generation and from Australia, I learned a lot of history and happenings thru is nazi era. It's a memorial sight so it was a nice way to experience the past without it being too overly confronting. Only downsides were our rather large group of 30 and 1 guide and the train ride of an hour each way plus the 20-30minute walk from the station to the memorial camp. Found that with the size of the group the walking and keeping up and getting everybody together was difficult and rushed, 2 smaller groups would have been better.Reviewed by: Joseph B, May 2013
