          Sachsenhausen Excursion

          Located just north of Berlin, Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp was one of the most notorious camps of the Nazi regime. The site, built by Heinrich Himmler, was used primarily for political prisoners from 1936 to the end of the Third Reich in May 1945 and held over 200,000 prisoners during this time. Today Sachsenhausen is a museum and memorial site with a library, archive and open-air exhibition. There are a dozen exhibitions throughout the site, including in the barracks, prison, kitchen and commandant's offices.

Next we'll cross Glienicke Bridge, the so-called "Bridge of Spies" of Cold War spy swaps fame. Reaching Potsdam, we continue to King Frederick's beautiful Park Sanssouci, a UNESCO World Heritage Site dotted with castles and temples, before returning to Berlin for a Farewell Dinner to mark our memorable visit.
