    Touching experience!

    The guided tour of the concentration camp was very interesting and obviously sad for the events that took place. It makes you think a lot! All explained in the best way by our experienced and competent guide Fabio Nigro. Thanks Fabio also for the advice on restaurants off the beaten track and which we tried the same evening! If you go to Berlin, the guided tour in Sachsenhausen is a must!
