Stiftung Brandenburgische Gedenkstätten Gedenkstätte und Museum Sachsenhausen

Opening Times, Prices and Travel Information



The Memorial outdoor grounds can be visited daily from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. There is no need for registration prior to the visit.

On the basis of the updated and tightened Brandenburg Corona Regulation, the 2G rule will apply starting from November 24, 2021 in all facilities of the Brandenburg Memorials Foundation.

Access to the outdoor areas, museums and other rooms is therefore restricted to:

  • people who have been proven to have been vaccinated or have recovered
  • Adolescents under 18 years of age with a negative test result. We accept the "school tests" of adolescents who visit a school in Germany, where they are regularly tested. Adolescents who visit schools abroad have to provide an official test certificate.
  • Children under 12 years
  • People who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons

Evidence must be presented on site (vaccination certificate, test certificate, written medical certificate, identification document).

All visitors are required to wear an FFP2 mask (without exhalation valve) in the entire area of the memorial.
