What You Can Expect

Join up with your guide and group at Munich Central Train Station (Hauptbahnhof), and then travel by train and bus (transport costs included) to Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site, just under an hour away.

Outside the town of Dachau, a memorial site stands on the grounds of the former concentration camp. Dachau was the first Nazi concentration camp in Germany during the Holocaust, and it was the originator and training ground for the vast order of brutality that spread over half of Europe in the wake of the armies of the Third Reich, and which ultimately culminated in history's greatest crime.

On this half-day tour, you'll spend around three hours exploring the memorial site with your guide. Tour the exhibition center and former compound, and learn about the history of Dachau, World War II, and the Holocaust. See reconstructed barracks, guard houses, cells, crematorium, and administration headquarters, and take a moment to reflect at the site's memorials.

While each camp was responsible for its own particular form of barbarism, what distinguished Dachau is that almost everything that happened in the system as a whole happened at some level there. Almost every category of victim passed through its Arbeit Macht Frei (Work Sets You Free) gate, including German dissidents, outspoken clergymen, Jehovah's Witnesses, gay men, Jewish people and Polish citizens. Today's memorial site combines the historical authenticity of the original environment and its many surviving buildings with the function of a modern exhibition center. It is a place of memory, of pilgrimage and of education.

After your visit, your guide will accompany you back to Munich, where your tour concludes at the original departure point.

Our guide was brilliant. He was extremely knowledgeable and loved sharing this part of history. Gut wrenching and eye opening - highly recommended.

A bit too fast, no time to visit the museum, only a quick walk thru with the guide. bus was completely full, pack like sardines. should be a dedicated bus so the guide can do his preamble on the bus, and then we would have more time visiting the actual site.

This tour was incredibly informative and really not to be missed if one is in Munich. Our tour guide, Steve, was it World War II historian, and incredibly well informed as to the events that occurred leading up to and during the period of Dachau’s active existence as a prison then concentration camp. I cannot highly recommend this enough. Taking the tour during the winter definitely added a dismal and somber aspect to the day. A great place to reflect on history and remember the sacrifices of others. The museum itself is well laid out with many photos, articles and explanations to fill in the gaps of knowledge about this horrible period in history. Just make time and go. You will not regret it. Don’t miss the path behind the crematorium and the memorial room for Holocaust victims.
