What to expect

Only 15km northwest from Munich, one of the first Nazi concentration camps was built. After its liberation by US-forces in 1945, it reopened 20 years later as a memorial site to honor the victims and give visitors a chance to learn from the past.

On this guided tour in English, you will get a comprehensive overview of the former Dachau concentration camp. See the cells, barracks and gas chamber and listen to moving stories of ex-prisoners. Original photographs and exhibits in the museum illustrate the inhumane reality of life in the concentration camp.

Your guide will take care of your travel itinerary from Munich to the Dachau memorial site and back and will give you an authorized tour of the memorial site upon arrival. This way you can fully enjoy this memorable half-day trip from Munich.
