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.

Visiting the Dacau Concentration Camp was a profound experience. Our guide was excellent and provided insights we would have never learned on our own.

I can't imagine doing this tour on our own now that we went with the tour. Sambi was great in getting us to the location and gave a much more detailed tour and history than I could have gotten on my own. Amazing, interesting and informative tour.

Sabri was our guide on this trip and he has made it unforgettable! He is an excellent guide with so much knowledge and even the children couldn't help but to listen to him the whole time! He really has an awesome way of presenting without trying to make a Hollywood movie from the facts. Thanks to Sabri and this trip we now have a much clearer view of the whole Nazi era.

While this was an experience that is never “fun” it was educational and humbling. Our guide was knowledgeable and engaging and caring.
