view web site ›'s insider take:

Only a few bone-chilling remnants are left of this concentration camp, where 250,000 people suffered and 56,000 died between 1937 and 1945. From 1945 to 1950, the Soviet occupation forces used the site as an internment camp, where over 7,000 more lives were lost. A museum inside the old storehouse reflects the site's tragic past. To get there via public transportation, take the Buchenwald bus (No. 6) from Hauptbahnhof and travel 4 miles northwest of Weimar. Open April–Oct, Tues–Sun 10–6; Nov–March, Tues–Sun 10–4. Last admission is 30 minutes before closing. Admission is free.
