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 2,5-hour drive from Vienna across Lower Austria and on to the camp. On board a short documentary will play featuring survivors’ accounts of life at the concentration camp during WWII and other historical footage. Upon arrival explore the preserved historic premises at your own pace with audio-guides (available in 11 major 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.
A range of freshly-prepared regional dishes for lunch is available at Mauthausen Memorial’s Bistrot. Afterwards you’ll be taken back to Vienna. Your tour concludes at the Vienna Opera House.
