My partner and I are planning a trip to Berlin. Among other things, we would like to visit a concentration camp, preferably do a tour. Are there any nearby for a day /half-day trip? What are some recommended tours?

@Karlson, that question is more broad in terms of location. I think this question (and answer) would be more useful for users doing a search for "berlin + concentration camps" – EdmundYeung99 Jun 13 '13 at 10:22

I would recommend you Sachsenhausen concentration camp. It's only 35km from Berlin. Here is a list of guided tours that they offer.

Here are some more tours: Insider Tour, Berlin Walks, which also do other tours in Berlin. They are walking tours where you meet at a particular time and take the train to the destination.
