  • We entered the camp from around the back near the quarry, where there are a large number of memorials to the various victims of the camp. These memorials were very moving and of historical interest...

  • when you enter, it almost seems to see thousands of people and to touch their pain, which we can never even remotely imagine. you can't help but be moved. the first time I took the guided tour in Italian, done very well, fair and accessible price, the guide is local and explains a lot of background that you don't know... he's also very open to questions and encourages you to ask them. highly recommended… the guides in Italian are only in August, this makes me think that we visit Mauthausen few times and this is very sad. Other times I have visited Mauthausen without a guide, even just to think and every time it is a blow to the heart.
  • A historical place and best for tourists. Mauthausen was the Adolf Hitler concentration camp to be liberated by the Allies. As of January 1945, the camp had over 85,000 prisoners. Around 300,000 people including jews were sentenced to death using poison gas, hanging, shooting and deadly medicine.
