Mauthausen concentration camp in Upper Austria was one of the largest labour camp complexes in the Third Reich. Between 1938 and 1945 about 200,000 people from all over Europe were imprisoned in Mauthausen. About half of them lost their lives. Today, Mauthausen Memorial stands as a reminder of the darkest days of Austria’s history.

In a small group of only 8 people take the 2-hour drive from Vienna across Lower Austria and on to the camp. Upon arrival explore the preserved historic premises at your own pace with audio-guides (available in 11 languages). See the Wiener-Graben quarry, the Stairs of Death, the SS-Quarters, the Camp Prison, the Gas Chamber and visit the newly re-opened Mauthausen Museum.

Honor the victims by learning about this crucial period in history. We donate a percentage of the tour’s profit to the Memorial.

Your Mercedes Sprinter tour vehicle offers extra large windows and plenty of space for up to eight passengers. Wifi and IPads as well as cold still water are free on board.
