Sachsenhausen was the largest concentration camp in the vicinity of Berlin, and one of many camps in a system now synonymous with the atrocities of Nazism. This tour is designed to give an overview of the concentration camp memorial at Sachsenhausen and show you Berlin’s essential sites in the time that you have ashore. You will be greeted in front of your cruise ship as soon as it docks and shown to a modern, comfortable, and air-conditioned bus equipped with WIFI. Your professional driver will then transfer you through the picturesque flatlands of former East Germany to the Charlottenburg Palace in Berlin (circa three hours). On arrival you will be met by your professional, local guide and head to the historic city centre to visit the essential sites in the German capital. You will stand in the shadow of the Reichstag, journey through the Memorial for the Murdered Jews of Europe, walk in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, and cross the border from East to West at Checkpoint Charlie. Time permitting, you will also have the opportunity to visit the UNESCO-listed Museum Island – the architectural heart of 19th century Berlin. After a short lunch break you will be driven to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp for a roughly 60-75 minute overview of the memorial site. Your guide will provide an in-depth commentary throughout the tour, helping you understand the sites and the history behind them as well as what makes the German capital one of the most dynamic cities in the world.

Once the Sachsenhausen portion of the tour is complete, you will be driven back to the port. Please be aware, the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial is roughly a one hour drive from Berlin. The tour is organised to try and minimise the time spent on the bus. This is why we visit Sachsenhausen in the afternoon, as it lies between Berlin and Warnemünde – on the way back to port. You will, however, spend more time on the bus than on our regular Berlin shore excursion. This is a necessity to see Berlin and Sachsenhausen in a day. All of our shore excursions are adjusted to each ship’s docking times and each starts promptly after your vessel’s arrival, returning with plenty of time to spare before its departure. We have been organizing shore excursions for nearly a decade and have never missed a cruise ship’s departure.
