Berlin: Sachsenhausen Memorial 6-Hour Tour in Spanish

10. Berlin: Sachsenhausen Memorial 6-Hour Tour in Spanish

The meeting point for the tour is at the front of the Alexanderplatz TV Tower. From here the tour makes its way to the Northern outskirts of Berlin. The train ride takes 50 minutes. This is a poignant tour of one of the most important concentration camps of both the Nazi Regime and Soviet era, told in Spanish. This 6-hour tour explores the origins of the camp, what life would have been like in the camp and the type of work performed by prisoners. With access to personal accounts of survivors, photographs, and official documents, you can understand the stark realities of Sachsenhausen. Features of the tour are the A Tower and Station Z. The A Tower was the roll-call location of the camp, and Station Z was added in 1942 with the purpose of killing victims quickly and clinically. Both of these locations are extremely sobering. Sachsenhausen also contains a very informative museum and various exhibits. Because of its close proximity to Berlin, Sachsenhausen was intended as a model camp. It was also the center for administration of all other Nazi concentration camps. Over 200,000 people passed through Sachsenhausen. At least 50,000 of these people died. After the fall of Hitler, the Soviets transformed Sachsenhausen into a gulag for their own prisoners. Today the camp is preserved for educational purposes and as a memorial site for all who were killed.

What people are saying about Brandenburg (State), Germany

Me and my boyfriend took the tour on one of our first days/holidays in Berlin. It was a magnificent start to the trip. We were brought by a tour guide named Paul, he was extremely informative and kept the whole trip exciting and interesting. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone, and we will. Even after the tour had finished Paul stayed with the group offering help and advice for travelling and transport in the city, which is otherwise difficult to navigate sometimes. It was an amazing experience and the helpfulness of the guide kept any stresses for first time travellers at an absolute minimum. Thanks again Paul, Up Wexford. Regards, Some very very happy customers

Paul was an expert with his knowledge about the concentration camps he took us to. His knowledge supplemented the entire experience of the tour. From the buildings, ovens and monuments, it’s incredible how much happened during this time period. I’m grateful for the experience Paul gave me because I’ve gained a different perspective of the realities of the holocaust. I recommend this tour to anyone because it was such a life changing experience. Will definitely recommend my friends and family. Thank you Paul! God Bless you!

It was very informational and moving. The guide, Peter, was very knowledgeable about the subject and was good about keeping the tone appropriate considering the subject matter.

Really easy to move around in Berlin however I don’t see any officers checking for the pass. Some may not even have bought it.

The tour was great with a lot of learning, reflection and History. The guide was very gentle and open to any questions.
