What to expect

On this 5-hour tour, you will explore the Dachau Concentration Camp with a professional English-speaking guide. This memorial became one of the most important centers of remembrance, contemplation, and learning in Germany.

After meeting your group at the Hauptbahnhof in Munich, you'll start the 40-minute journey to Dachau by an S-Bahn train and bus. When you arrive, you'll start your tour and discover the murky history of one of the first concentration camps in Germany.
In March 1933, Heinrich Himmler ordered the construction of one of Germany's first concentration camps in a small town near Munich; Dachau. The first 5,000 prisoners were political enemies of the Nazi regime.

In the following years, other social, ethnic, and racial enemies were imprisoned as Dachau went on to become the only concentration camp to remain active during the entire Third Reich period (1933-1945). At the time of liberation, over 200,000 prisoners from more than 30 nations had been imprisoned there. During the 1960s, the Dachau memorial was founded to investigate their plight.
