Terezín Concentration Camp Tour

Day trip from Prague to the former Nazi concentration camp Terezín with an expert local guide

ABOUT THE Terezín Concentration Camp Tour

This day trip from Prague to Terezín concentration camp will show you both the magnificence of what was an 18th Century Austrian fortress, and the tragic role it held when the Nazi's repurposed it as a concentration camp, deporting prisoners straight from here to Auschwitz.

 

This day trip from Prague to Terezín meets in front of the Cartier store and the Czech tourism office on Old Town Square.

 

A Nazi concentration camp

Your tour starts with your expert local guide taking you on a private bus from Prague to Terezín. While Terezín seems a sleepy and unassuming town, you'll hear about the tragedy that befell the prisoners who were brought to this Gestapo prison, Jewish ghetto and deportation camp. You'll see the former SS camp headquarters, the ghetto's guards quarters, the Jewish dormitories and the crematorium as your guide tells you about life inside the camp, and about the people who were imprisoned here, reminding you that these were not just statistics, but innocent people. You'll see the memorials, and hear the stories of these often forgotten victims.

Propaganda inside Terezín

The Nazis were famous for their propaganda, and made several videos from inside their concentration camps to try to prove to the outside world that they life inside the camps was perfectly acceptable (of course, the videos were staged, with prisoners given extra clothing etcetera). Not only was one of these propaganda videos shot at Terezín, but the Nazis even invited the Red Cross to look around the camp, only showing the Red Cross what the Nazis wanted them to see.

An easy day trip from Prague

We've made the day trip to Terezín as easy for you as possible, picking you up from the Prague city center in the morning and returning there at the end of the day.
