Stiftung Brandenburgische Gedenkstätten Mahn- und Gedenkstätte Ravensbrück

Further advice

Admission to the memorial and the museums is free.

As a single visitor you may for a small charge hire an audio guide. If you wish to take advantage of our educational facilities as a group, we would strongly advise you to book well in advance.


While the Memorial is open, you may watch the film "Remembering Ravensbrück" lasting around 30 minutes in German, English and French. The film is shown in the former garage complex once an hour and is based on interviews with former inmates of Ravensbrück concentration camp.


The content displayed in the Memorial and its exhibitions is not suitable for children under 12 years of age. We therefore recommend that they should only visit the Memorial accompanied by their parents. The educational programmes we offer are aimed at schoolchildren aged 14 and above.


Please bear in mind that the Memorial is a large, open space that is exposed to the weather. So we recommend that, depending on the weather, you wear suitably warm clothing and firm shoes as well as protection from the sun and the rain.


Bicycles are not permitted on the site. There are bike stands in the entrance area next to the visitors’ service centre, where you can lock up your bicycle for the duration of your visit.

Bag storage

Lockers are available in the visitors service centre for storing medium-sized bags during your visit. Larger items of baggage cannot be stored.


Dogs must be kept on a leash on the Memorial's grounds.


Only for groups, who ordered in advance, there is a chance to have a meal at Ravensbrück Youth Hostel: +49 33093 605 90 /
