Know Before You Go
The Bergen-Belsen Memorial is located in the southern part of Lüneburg Heath, about 25 kilometres from the town of Celle. About 300,000 people visit the Memorial each year.
There are signs for the Bergen-Belsen Memorial on the A7/E45 and A352 motorways as well as the roads leading from them to the Memorial. The nearest motorway exits are the “Soltau-Ost” exit when coming from the north and the “Mellendorf" exit when coming from the west or south. It takes around 20 minutes to reach the Memorial from the “Soltau-Ost” exit via Bergen and around 35 minutes from the “Mellendorf” exit via Winsen/Aller.
Please follow the signs, as GPS directions to the Memorial are not always reliable.
Parking at the Memorial is free of charge.
