Guided tours

For Information about educational programs and guided tours for groups visit "Education and Encounters". The following information applies to guided tours for individual visitors.

On weekends (Saturday and Sunday) from April to September, the Memorial offers open guided tours for individual visitors in German and English. Our guides provide introductory information about the history of the site and accompany you through the Memorial and historic grounds of the former camp. Participant numbers are limited. You can find dates and start times and you can register in advance on our booking platform, or you may join a tour without registering if it's not fully booked yet.  

Participants meet at the information desk in the Documentation Centre. Each tour lasts around 90 minutes. A participation fee of 3 euros per person (2 euros concession) is charged for tours.


Starting 6 April 2024 open guided tours in English and German usually take place on Saturdays and Sundays at 11:30 (a.m.) and 14:30 (2:30 p.m.).

Upcoming tours can also be found in our booking portal.

No guided tours in English will take place on 8 June 2024.




Our colleagues at the information desk are available to answer any questions you might have about the tours.
