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
My family and I visited here in the summer of 2017. We flew in from Paris specifically just to tour the camp. The day of our visit, the weather was miserable which was very suitable for the atmosphere and we could not complain considering the horrors that occurred in the past. The museum and grounds are very well kept and reflect great respect for those who have suffered and died. We spent about 4 or 5 hours touring the grounds and learned a lot. It was a very sombre, sad and humbling experience but one that I would definitely recommend.
This was a very great experience! There are guided tours available, but only run at specific times and have limited availability! You can take a self guided tour, which was fine! Everything is free, unless you use an audio guide! This is a popular camp though, so plan for crowds!
Wear closed toe shoes!!! The area is all gravel. Allot most of the day to make it through everything. We did a self tour and it was great. Very impressed with the entire area, very moving. There are guided tours in various languages at certain times during the day as well as a movie screening.
It is bone chilling. Make sure you come with a few hours in hand. Go through all the exhibits and read the descriptions that they have carefully placed everywhere. It is free to enter and photography is allowed. It's truly a do not miss place whilst in Munich!
You can spend easily spend half a day walking the entire place that can send chills down your spine, they have guided tours and audio tours. A must visit place to learn about German politics. Clean facilities and a great display for history.
