The remains of Buchenwald Memorial, a Nazi concentration camp, serve as a museum and memorial to its victims. Much of the site was demolished, but you can still see the main gate, crematorium, hospital block, and two guard towers. Walk around the site to gain a new understanding of the horrors of Hitler's Germany. The clock on the entrance gate, set to a quarter past three, refers to the time American troops arrived at the camp on April 11, 1945. The museum outlines the history of the camp and displays many relics, such as letters, clothing, and photos. Check for the scheduled guided tours.

  • Interesting visit. The museum building was closed because of covid. the sheer size of the grounds is impressive. There's an audio app that gives a good basic explanation of what was where.
  • A 'must visit'. Hire the electronic self guiding tool. Excellent narrative. Very well preserved. If you go by bus, check out the return departure schedule. Some days there is only one bus per hour.
