- Tower A (main entrance)
- Camp Infirmary and pathology Building
- Station Z (the purpose-built execution facility)
- Exhibition in former camp kitchen building
- SS and Gestapo Prison

At the end guests will have learnt how this camp and the system itself came into being, how it developed and how the prisoner types, numbers and nationalities changed over time.

. This was a somber tour but full of uniquely informative. We gained a historical perspective not typically known by most. Our guide was stupendous! Worth every penny. He was very knowledgeable and accommodating to our requests which made the tour just perfect! I recommend hotel pick up even though it’s not what Americans call hotel pick up. Having your guide walk you through the various modes of transportation there and back was extremely stress frer

Our trip with our guide Paul was very informative and deeply touching. The grounds have an energy that is truly hard to put into words. We enjoyed our guide and his knowledge and even though it is a glance at the unspeakable evil that spread through Germany and other countries, it is important to educate our children about history so that they can prevent these types of things happening again.
