Tourist entrance to crematoria area was built in 1965

Baracke X, the gas chamber building, which was completed in 1943, is located outside the northwest corner of the camp. A new gate has been constructed across from the Protestant Church to give access to this area, which was off limits to the prisoners. A bridge crosses the reconstructed ditch and the Würm river, which runs in a concrete-lined canal, forming a boundary along the west side of the prison compound. After you go through the gate, the path leads straight ahead to the graves of the unknown beyond Baracke X on your right.
