Berlin & Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Join-in Shore Excursion

1 Reviews
Did you know that your first visit to Berlin could be combined with a visit to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial? Sachsenhausen was the largest concentration camp in the vicinity of Berlin. Your trip will include the visit to one of the first KZ's (Konzentrationslagers - Concentration camp in German) in the Third Reich. A truly remarkable way to pay the respects to those who had vanished during the WWII includes visits to the most important sights of war-time (and Cold War) Berlin, such as the Reichstag, the Berlin Wall, the Brandenburg Gate, the Checkpoint Charlie, the Jewish Memorial, and so much more!
