The guided tour in Gusen primarily focus on the plots of land purchased in 2022 and the history of this area (1939 - 2024). The tour also includes a visit to the Memorial de Gusen, where the former crematorium is located. This site is now the central commemoration site of the Gusen Concentration Camp Memorial.

The guides are all specially trained educators. Our education training places great emphasis on encouraging interaction and openness among visitors. This results in tours that offer a balance of historical information and group discussion about what that history means.
