  • Accompanied by an English-speaking Austrian guide, a tour of this concentration camp / work camp Mauthausen, where the prisoners were forced to work in the granite farm. On the stairs of death, still clearly visible in the quarry, thousands of prisoners have died. Impressive cellars with gas chambers and incinerators. In the end, more than 90,000 prisoners died in this camp. The camps of Auschwitz and Dachau are bigger and more impressive, yet a visit to Mauthausen is definitely worth it if you are still nearby

  • Our tour of the Mauthausen Work Camp was a sobering reminder of the Horrific things that were done to the prisoners during there stay. The tour was very good, by a well informed guide.  more »

  • It is part of our history :(. That what I have to say, but most likely i want to see it in our history. It is scary it is horrible. But people should visit this place and see what is people able to do other people - to learn from it and NOT to do it anymore (not to do it in any price)!!! Read the story of people which should live there... But also, there you realize what is human body capable withstand, when you trust for better future.
  • The camp is quite intact. Decently preserved with a map provided at the visitors center to guide you on the walking tour. Everything is marked clearly on the map and easy to find. Not a sprawling camp like Auschwitz but well worth the visit.
