Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at Munich Central Station or your centrally located Munich hotel, thentake a train to Dachau where a bus will then transport you to Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site.

During the Holocaust, Dachau was referred to as the parent camp, serving as a training ground for the genocide during the Third Reich. A staggering range of persecuted people were sent to Dachau including communists, German dissidents, gay men, Jehovahs Witnesses, Jewish peopleand Polish citizens and it's thought that upward of 200,000 people were once imprisoned here.

Today the camp stands as a memorial site with many of its original features serving as reminders of a time in history that should never be forgotten. Explore the site with your guide, and see the gatehouse with its Arbeit macht frei(Work makes you free) gateway, a bunker and a crematorium. You can also visit the administration headquarters and see the rail platform where prisoners once arrived.

As you walk around, listen to your guide give the background on each site, learning about Nazis whose names were linked to the camp. The leader Heinrich Himmler set up Dachau, and Theodore Eicke later used it as a place to train theSS (Nazi secret police) guards.

If there is something you would like to know more about, simply let your guide know. After exploring the camp, take some free time to browse the museum or eat lunch (own expense) in the visitor center, and then return by train to Munich Central Station.

  • Stephan was an excellent guide. He did a great job explaining the history leading up to Dachau and gave us a sense of why this time in history came to be. This tour is well worth the price considering we had the guide all to ourselves and could ask questions and interact. Highly recommended!

  • Our tour guide met us at our hotel and was very knowledgeable. We were there on a cloudy, drizzling day which enhanced the somber setting. We had 4 in our group and our guide was great at answering all of our questions. We really appreciated the individual attention.

  • Fabulous tour with a very knowledgeable guide.

  • Was exactly as it explained the tour. The guide I was very knowledgeable about Dachau and explained so much to us and gave us as much time as we wanted. I am glad that we did this tour. It was a very serious and emotional experience and I felt our guide did a great job!!!

  • I'm sorry to send this review but our tour with Jason no-last-name-offered was a big letdown.
    For 422 USD he met us at our hotel and we walked together a block to the train then
    took a crowded bus together to the Dachau camp. We rode back to town less than 3 hours later.
    Jason seemed adequately knowledgible
    as he guided us but his facts lacked depth, nuance, feeling. He wanted us to skip the museum when we first
    passed it and said we could go back later if we wanted but then that didn't happen. He left it up to us if we wanted
    to see the various religious groups' memorial sites. His answers to our questions were often answered
    w a shrug or a vague answer or that the whole underlying problem was the economy!
    I had been looking forward to this tour for a very long time. My father was stationed in Munich in 1949 as an American
    army doctor, we lived in Munich for 3 years and a brother was born there at the 98th hospital in Schwabing. My parents visited Dachau in 1950 and we still have the small black and white photos they took.
    Jason was really uninterested in hearing about this or looking at the old photos I put on my phone.
    What a waste, what a disappointment.

  • Fantastic tour. Our guide was an expert on WWII History and details of what went on in and around Dachau. Very sobering experience, but well worth it

  • Brendon is an outstanding guide. We highly recommend him!

  • Our guide was excellent. He has a deep rich knowledge of modern Germany history. Softly spoken, gentle and full of warmth he instantly connected with us. This was a 10 out of 10 tour. We had our young boys with us who like us were riveted in our guides explanations and stories about the camp.

  • Jason was an excellent guide, a powerful tour.

  • Everything about this was easy - booking on-line, collecting us from our hotel, the train journey, etc - just great! Our guide, Jason was very friendly and his knowledge and expertise on WW2 and Dachau was extensive. On what is a very dark period of history he managed to keep things light without minimising what had gone on and answered all our questions. We left feeling more informed about this period in history.
