Munich Third Reich Walking Tour (2.5 hours):
Head to the prearranged point in central Munich — once the home of the Nazi headquarters — to meet your guide and then set off on your walking tour around the city.
The exact sights taken are in varied for each tour, but examples of historic buildings that you may see include the former headquarters of the Gestapo and the place where the infamous ‘beer hall putsch’ of 1923 took place — the event that first propelled Hitler to the public eye.
Learn about the rise of the Nazi party from your guide and look at black-and-white photos of the city taken during the Third Reich. Your guide has detailed knowledge on the social issues and events of Nazi Germany, so feel free to ask questions and chat about sites of particular interest.
After 2.5 hours exploring the streets of Nazi Munich, make your way back to the start point where you make your way to the memorial site of Dachau.
Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site Tour (5 Hours):
Meet your guide at Munich Central Station, and then board a train for your short journey to Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site, just under half an hour away. On arrival, walk the short distance to the town’s former concentration camp and head inside for your tour.
Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site was known as the parent camp; it was the first of its kind, and acted as a training facility for the mass genocide that occurred during the days of the Third Reich. Today the camp exists as a memorial site, but many of its original features remain intact. Walk around with your guide, see buildings such as the bunker, crematorium and administration headquarters, and gain insight into its history.
The tour will return back to the starting point at the Munich main train station.

Both tours were great and very, very informative. My only gripe was the from a fellow overweight tourist who yelled at the tour guide for walking... these tours have a lot of walking. The reviews I read before the tours stated there would be a lot of walking. When it comes to walking, be prepared to be a positive Patty instead of a Negative Nancy. I walked about 15k steps between the two tours. Eric was the guide for the Dachau Tour. He is knowledgeable about the events that took place here and gave a good overview of the entire camp. These types of tours are not fun, but we need to remember the events. Eric laid out the information in a great way that was respectful and made a lasting impression.Iain was the guide for the 3rd Reich Tour. We walked to various places in Munich. He gave a good background of the history leading up to WW2.Both tours I learned so much! You can tell the guides are passionate about the history and are educated on the topics. Highly recommend!

May 2018 - We did the Third Reich Walking Tour with guide Chris in the morning and the Dachau tour with guide Jeff in the afternoon. Be prepared for a lot of walking - but it was well worth it. I recommend doing the Third Reich tour first as it provides you with the foundational knowledge for the Dachau tour in the afternoon. Our guides were fabulous. Highly recommended rout if you want to learn and experience was like during the Nazi regime time.

Tour guide Achim was very knowledgeable and gave a great tour. Radius Tours in Munich is the BEST tour company Ive ever seen. We were originally scheduled to take one tour through them, but were so impressed with the first one that we booked two more tours for our trip, and all were Excellent. The office is conveniently located in the Hauptbahnhof Station from which the tours depart and the girl in the office is super nice and helpful. Highly highly recommend.
