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.
