Full description

Visit the Mauthausen Memorial – a former crime scene, a place of memory, a cemetery for 90,000-320,000 victims of the Nazi ideology. Take a closer look at the darkest days of WWII and Holocaust by exploring the original prison block, execution cellar, bunkers and memorials with a knowledgeable Private Guide. Immerse yourself in the tragic story that shall never be forgotten.

This 6-hour tour includes on-site guide and private car transfers between your accommodation in Vienna and the Mauthausen Memorial. During your visit at the former concentration camp you will discover the gruesome details of some of the cruelest and most inhumane crimes of the Nazis. Thanks to the detailed commentary of your Private Guide you will get a good understanding of the historical events that led to the creation of the main death and labor camp and its subcamps.

As you explore the museum composed of the Wiener-Graben Quarry, the SS-Quarters, the original prisoners’ barracks, crematoriums and memorials, you will hear authentic stories of the camp’s victims, including intelligentsia and prisoners of war. The stories of extreme starvation, extermination by labor, icy showers and “stairs of death” will make you understand just how cruel the Mauthausen concentration camp was. At the end of the tour, you will be driven back to Vienna.
