Book Terezin Memorial Tour
A half day tour to Terezin, a World War II concentration camp and Jewish ghetto located outside Prague.

This tour is part by air-conditioned coach, part on foot.

After picking you up from your Prague hotel, we take a short drive north to the Terezin Memorial. This former garrison town was built at the end of the 18th century by Emperor Joseph II as an ingenious system of military fortresses.

However, when the Nazis invaded the Czech Republic during World War II, they converted this huge area into a concentration camp and Jewish ghetto.

We take an extensive tour of both the camp and the ghetto: we visit the Gestapo prison, Terezin Museum, the Crematorium, the hidden synagogue and the exhibition at Magdeburg Barracks. All areas are eerily preserved in their 1940s state.

The displays include some of the belongs of the unfortunate people who resided here - the clothing, drawings, poetry and other precious artefacts - and through these we gain an understanding of what life was like.

This sorry episode in the history of Terezin, and of humanity in general, will no doubt leave unanswered questions in your mind, as to how or why such atrocities can occur.

This tour is of a sensitive nature, so we run it in small groups, and it is led by a specialist guide in Jewish history, to ensure participants gain a full understanding of the subject.

For refreshments, a coffee shop/restaurant is located on site.

Prague Experience sightseeing tours are in English. They are led by professional, licensed tourist guides and use modern, air-conditioned mini-coaches.

The tour finishes back in Prague, near the Old Town Square.

Please note: many of the inhabitants of Terezin were deported from the Jewish Quarter (Josefov) in Prague. In addition to this tour therefore, to trace the origins of the story you may also wish to book the Jewish Quarter Walking Tour.
