Due to the unusual tourism situation currently developing, we have temporarily suspended this tour.

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. No chance of getting lost, getting on the wrong train or buying the wrong ticket - this private bus is chartered solely for the SANDEMANs Terezín concentration camp walking tour guests.

What is a Select Tour?

 

Select Tours focus on a particular area or district of a city, a certain aspect of its history or culture, or take you outside the city on a day trip. Select Tours are perfect for those who have enjoyed an introduction to the city and wish to delve deeper into the stories the city has to offer. These tours often venture further afield and make use of local public transport.

As with the Free Tour, Select Tours are provided by local freelance guides in partnership with SANDEMANs NEW Europe, who bring their personal flair and expert knowledge to these specifically themed tours. Select tours have a fixed ticket price - we recommend purchasing your ticket in advance, either during a Free Tour or online.
