Highlights

  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Small group ensures personal service

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.

My girlfriend and I attended the tour that was done by Eric. He was an extremely well informed tour guide! I went on this tour several years ago with a different tour guide and I would definitely recommend this one over my first. He was well rounded, answered all of our questions, told us stories behind many of the sights/people, and even though it was was somber event in history he kept it light. **On our transportation back to the city they closed down all the city center stops (w/o notice) and he was able to navigate a group of +30 people back to each of our stops**

This was a tour that you must do. Keith was a walking encyclopedia on all subjects pertinent to Dachau. He also treated the subject with the respect that should be observed and was a fantastic guide throughout.

Eric always provided historical context as he guided us expertly through Dachau. In addition, he ensured we got back to our different addresses after the tour when the central train station tracks were closed down!

Kai was very informative and thought provoking. He made us think a lot about things that are happening today that seems like maybe history is repeating itself.
