Dachau Concentration Camp - Review

The Dachau Concentration Camp, 10 miles northwest of Munich, was one of the first death camps in Nazi Germany and might have served as a model for all resulting camps in the Third Reich. 

Dachau guests are taken through the authentic "path of the prisoner", strolling the same way detainees were constrained to after their landing in the camp. You will see the definitive detainee showers, dormitory, patios, and the crematorium, and a far reaching display and different dedications and memorabilia of the age.

Dachau Concentration Camp, Munich Reviews

  • An incredibly sobering experience. The memorial does an excellent job of immersing the visitor, while remaining very respectful of those who suffered and died there. No amount of reading can prepare you emotionally for the experience of walking in the footsteps of the victims. I would agree that this is likely too much for younger children. Lots of information to read for those interested, as well as memorials for various religious groups. I would recommend putting aside a few hours. The museum has a wealth of information that I did not have time to get through. There is a non-profit bookstore in the museum if you want postcards or books about the camp.

  • This monument has been well preserved and is very respectful and honest. The guided tour is best, but if you don't have the time the audio guide is extremely helpful. They allow you access to the gas chambers and furnaces. This isn't a place for small children. It takes about three hours to go through the whole experience. The children we saw there were clearly bored and screamed and cried which was very distracting and disrespectful. They even ask you to not bring small children. It is an emotional experience. The parking is not free if you drive. Bus tours drop you right out front.

  • An important, humbling, inspiring must-stop while in the Munich area. I will be forever changed by this experience. A short, cheap trip to the north and west of Munich, Drachau is easy to get to and the way to the memorial site is clearly marked. Entry to the memorial site is free, but I would recommend stopping by the visitor center near the entrance and paying the 5 euro for the audio tour. The entire memorial site is set up to take you on the journey the prisoners would have taken from the train platform to the registration area to the bunkers. I recommend following the path as directed for the full experience and impact. The main museum area offers tons of information including information about the rise of the Third Reich, the construction and expansion of the concentration camp, the prisoners and life in the camp, and the war itself. After visiting the museum, take your time walking around the expansive memorial site and exploring every area including the bunker sites, jail, guard house, memorial chapels, convent, crematorium, gas chamber, and mass graves. Prepare to spend 4-5 hours here if you want the full experience. I took my time seeing, reading, and listening to everything and it took about 4.5 hours. Many tour groups visit and can increase the time needed to see everything. Make time to see this. I walked away with not only a greater understanding of the memorial and its context in the world, but also a lasting understanding of the extreme sacrifice that came because of it. I know you won’t be disappointed if you go.

  • It's difficult to give such a location a five star rating considering what it once represented. However, from a historical perspective it's a total eye opener and conveys a feeling that can never fully be grasped from simply reading or watching such related accounts. It's very thoughtfully and respectfully managed and maintained. Good parking and conveniences.

  • Informative, real and free. Gives a good explanation of the cause of the holocaust. Germans had a pretty though time before history unfolded the way it did. The staff was amazingly nice and helpful. Be prepared to shed a couple of tears. This experience keeps you sensitive to humanity.
