Overview

Get a deeper understanding of the darkest part of Germany's history during this half-day tour of Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. With a guide, travel from Munich to the camp by train. Take a tour of the cells, barracks, and gas chamber as you learn about Munich's role in the development of the Nazi Party. Pay your respects at the memorial site, and watch a moving documentary about the camp. Children under the age of 14 are not allowed on the tour.

Highlights

  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • Step back in time on a history tour
  • Pickup from a centrally located meeting point
  • All-inclusive tour

To begin this half-day tour, meet your guide at 10:15am at the Tourist Information kiosk in central Munich's Marienplatz. (There's also an afternoon departure offered during summer months, which you may select when booking.) Travel with your guide to Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site by train (it takes about an hour), and take a guided tour of all areas of the camp once you arrive.

Walk with your guide through the cells, barracks, and gas chamber. Learn the meaning behind the pictures and the museum exhibits as you read thought-provoking accounts of prisoners’ own experiences — from the camp's creation until their liberation by US forces in 1945. You'll also watch a 22-minute documentary film in English, and have an opportunity to pay your respects at the memorial. The tour concludes back at the Munich Hauptbahnhof (Central Train Station).

Really enjoyed the trip from Munich to Dachau for the 1/2 day trip. Train ride was uneventful. Bus ride was a little packed but manageable since it was such a short distance. Alek was a great tour guide! He was so personable and knowledgeable about the subject matter. Happy to have included this tour on our vacation.

Our tour of Dachau was everything we hoped it would be. Our tour guide, Alex, was friendly, so personable and extremely knowledgable. He was excellent at guiding us to train and bus in an orderly fashion and the knowledge he imparted was what we hoped to learn. He was able to choose the exibits already within the Museum to highlight the most important facts. It was an experience worth the fee.
