Know More about this tour

Join up with your guide and group at Munich Central Train Station (Hauptbahnhof), and then travel by train and bus (transport costs included) to Dachau concentration camp Memorial Site, just under an hour away.

Outside the town of Dachau, a memorial site stands on the grounds of the former concentration camp. Dachau wasthe first Nazi concentration camp in Germany during the Holocaust, and itwas the originator and training ground for the vast order of brutality that spread over half of Europe in the wake of the armies of the Third Reich, and which ultimately culminated in history's greatest crime.

On this half-day tour, you'll spend around three hours exploring the memorial site with your guide. Tour the exhibition center and former compound, and learn about the history of Dachau, World War II, and the Holocaust. See reconstructed barracks, guard houses, cells, crematorium, and administration headquarters, and take a moment to reflect at the site's memorials.

While each camp was responsible for its own particular form of barbarism, what distinguished Dachau is that almost everything that happened in the system as a whole happened at some level there. Almost every category of victim passed through its Arbeit Macht Frei (Work Sets You Free) gate, including German dissidents, outspoken clergymen, Jehovah's Witnesses, gay men, Jewish people and Polish citizens. Today's memorial site combines the historical authenticity of the original environment and its many surviving buildings with the function of a modern exhibition center. It is a place of memory, of pilgrimage and of education.

After your visit, your guide will accompany you back to Munich, where your tour concludes at the original departure point.

    Very moving tour. Scott provided alot of information and insight about the camp, surrounding area, and the time period. The entire grounds were very sobering, but is a must-see for anyone visiting the Munich area.

    The way our tour guide Scott told the story and being there in the camp made everything feel so surreal. It was such an amazing experience and if I could recommend anybody to be your guide, it would be him! He was very patient with the group and had so much knowledge. Thank you for making my brothers and I experience a spectacular one in Dachau.

    I’ve always wanted to visit at least one concentration camp when I had the chance to visit Germany. Although the memorial site is free, I highly recommend paying a few bucks to have a tour guide take you through the very first concentration camp that was the blueprint for all the rest. Our tour guide was Silvia and she being from Munich had such passion and knowledge on Dachau that it gave such a better understanding of what went on there that the history books didn’t really conceptualisé for me growing up. You can feel the energy while walking the grounds of the camp.

    Mat the tour guide presented a very balanced, insightful and thoughtful story as we made our way through the Dachau concentration camp. His extended knowledge on the subject of WW2 contextualised the subject well and provided a very memorable experience - I’d highly recommend Mat as a tour guide and the tour to the Dachau Concentration Camp memorial.
