Make your way to the Zoologischer Garten train station or Hackescher Markt train station to meet your guide. You will need a Berlin Transport ABC Zone ticket. Relax and enjoy the scenery on the ride to Oranienburg, which takes about 45 minutes.

Chilling but well worth a visit

Extremely chilling experience but a must for all to do. Our tour guide, Michael Dempsey, was a fountain of knowledge and kept the tour interesting throughout. Of all the things I did during my weekend in Berlin this was by far my favourite.
