Stiftung Brandenburgische Gedenkstätten Mahn- und Gedenkstätte Ravensbrück

Educational programmes

The Ravensbrück Memorial offers exhibitions and visitor programmes in its role as a site for historical-political education.

For individual visitors, an audio guide has been developed for exploring the Memorial’s external grounds and permanent exhibition in two 90-minute tours. The audio guide is available for a fee of 3 euros and a deposit left in the Visitor Centre.

The Educational Services department has developed a variety of programmes for actively exploring the history of the Ravensbrück camp complex. Thematic focal points include the history of the women’s concentration camp, the Uckermark ‘juvenile protective custody camp’, the men’s camp, and the Siemens camp, as well as the history of the Memorial. These focal points are also reflected in the Memorial’s exhibitions.

The Memorial offers various types of tours, project days, and one- or multi-day seminars, which can be tailored to specific themes upon request.

The International Youth Meeting Centre | Ravensbrück Youth Hostel provides accommodation and seminar rooms that make it the ideal location for multi-day youth encounters, workshops and meetings.

The Memorial’s educational work is aimed at school classes and youth groups, trainees, university students, young people, and adults.

The costs for group educational programmes at the Memorial are based on the schedule of fees[link!] of the Brandenburg Memorials Foundation.
