Not as well known as similar memorials but interesting, thought provoking and poignant. Staff are friendly and informative as well as very kind and helpful. Easy to get to using public transport.

I have visited several concentration camps before, and I was not disappointed with the available information on this one. Of course it is smaller than Auschwitz, but there are still quite some buildings with information, and collected items. Interesting (and dark) story about this place....More

Much smaller than other camps, but deeply connected to Hamburgs history. Recommended to arrive by car. Public transportation rare.

Hello, I don't know where your hotel is but transportation in Hamburg is fantastic and you will be able to reach the camp by train and then bus. I had never been to Hamburg before and figured it out very easily. Good luck!
