Berlin: Places to Explore

Oranienburg

In this little village a short drive north of Berlin, the Nazis built one of the first concentration camps (neighbors claimed not to notice what was happening there). After the war, the Soviets continued to use it. Only later did the GDR regime turn it into a memorial site. If you feel like you’ve covered all the main sites in Berlin, this is worth a day trip.
