Warnemuende Shore Excursion: Sachsenhausen Memorial and Berlin\'s Main Sites from Rostock
Make the most of your time while docked in Warnemünde with this full-day private shore excursion. First, visit Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Site, one of the first concentration camps established by Nazi Germany.  Listen as your expert guide details the facts surrounding the camp and tours you through the vast memorial.

Begin this full-day tour with a Warnemünde port pickup by your local driver in a modern air conditioned private mini-bus. After a 2-hour ride south meet your local expert guide at the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Visitor\'s Center. Expertly researched and designed, here you will receive a comprehensive tour of the location which played an integral role in the execution of the Holocaust.

Built in the Summer of 1936 Sachsenhausen initially facilitated the removal of \"antisocial\" elements as Berlin hosted the Olympics held that year. Learn why Nazi architects conceived the grounds as the ideal structure for a concentration camp. As the first camp established under Heinrich Himmler find out how Sachsenhausen was used as a training ground of the Holocaust. Also learn about Special Camp No. 1/7 as Sachsenhausen was to become known under the Soviets until its closure in March 1950.

Continue on southward to Berlin with your private driver and local guide. During the half hour ride take some time to chat about what you are interested in seeing so as to customize the itinerary.

Explore more historical sites which add to your knowledge of 20th century Germany. Learn about Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party and what life was like during the Third Reich. See where Hitler’s bunker was located and visit the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.

Also, find out how Germany was divided while walking through Checkpoint Charlie, the best-known crossing point between East and West Berlin during the Cold War. Then walk alongside the remains of the Berlin Wall at the Berlin Wall Memorial and East Side Gallery. Walk under the famous Brandenburg Gate, one of Berlin’s most important monuments. A symbol of division between Berlin and Germany during the Cold War, it is now a national symbol of peace and unity. See the Reichstag building, the modern-day meeting place of the German Parliament. 

When hunger strikes, the guide will suggest a variety of lunch options, such as a traditional German beer garden, depending on preference.
