Full description
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.
