Mauthausen Concentration Camp was a Nazi work and death camp. It is a moving and worthwhile memorial to visit. Allow a half day if you want to see everything and have time for a break. Despite the town’s post-war desire to tear it down, many...More

When you are in Vienna you must see Mauthausen concentrationcamp. It's 2h30 drive from the capital of Austria. The site is well preserved and in memoration of the people who live and die there. The crematoria and ghas chambers are also in the camp.

Mauthausen is a somber place to visit. Seems a bit sterile to me like they are trying not to emphasize the atrocities that took place here. It was very inexpensive--six Euros for two adults (including English audio guide). The guide is pretty good. There is...More

You might try Brixner Taxi based in Mauthausen. We took the train from Linz, and then Brixner took us from the Mauthausen train station to the memorial for 15 Euro each way (for two people). Maybe they'll drive into Linz for... More
