About Dachau Concentration Camp, Munich

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.

  • If you were debating taking a tour debate no more. This was the best historical tour I have been on. Be prepared, it is very sad and makes you feel horrible feelings in your gut. The history the preserved is amazing They have rebuilt bunkers to exact specifications as well as restored parts of the camp for viewing. The sculpture in the main yard is stunning

  • Three stars because of the management of the place!! They do not provide live tours to visitors but only very few per month!!! Nor give you a proper audio guide! I've paid 3 euro (good price) for an audio tour, which didn't have a port for earphones, so you had to keep in to your ear all the time like a telephone! But that was not the worst, the numbers on the wall where the exhibited items (pictures, rooms etc) didn't match the numbers on the audio guide/reader!!! They give you a map which is very very poor on leading you! The transport from Munich is not too bad: you have to take the train to a certain point and then a bus takes you to thw camp tickets at the train station, easy..just use google maps -very reliable. Not the best experience I had with the place due to the management of the place, but it's worth visiting if you hadn't been to any camp before. If you chose to go, book a privet tour as you'll end up upset.. as a place I would say it gives quite a few interesting sides of history..from both sides of it.

  • The very first camp and a prototype for all the coming ones... I recommend coming here to all people wanting to learn about some the crimes committed in second WW. The entry is for free. I recommend going through the information building with all the walls with text and pictures the wrong way around. They really took an effort to document everything and the really shocking things only come up in the end. Hence starting at the end gives the worst images and information the attention they deserve. Everyone visiting Munich for more than two days should consider going out here. It might not be the "funniest" trip but certainly a memorable one.

  • One of those difficult places that everyone must visit. It is horrible to think what human beings were made to endure here simply because they were labelled as different from the 'norm'. There are displays and very good accounts of the suffering that the inmates of the camp had to endure. The individual stories were particularly poignant and humanized the vast masses of individuals who were interned here. Perhaps, one should not visit with very young children, but definitely a place to come with the whole family as what happened here (and similar camps across Europe) should not be forgotten, especially that many these days want to obliterate the memory of this horror or diminish its significance.

  • The memorial is a real reminder of the horrors.We did a self guided tour with the map provided to us at entrance. All know important information/facts are posted in English at each site location. we spend around 4 hours there and understood a lot of history. You can take audio guide or a guide tour for a more detailed visit
