Private Tour: Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site by Train from Munich

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    This half-day excursion begins with a tour guide meet and greet at your Munich hotel or München Hauptbahnhof (Munich Central Station), the main railway station in Munich. After boarding a train there, it’s approximately a 30-minute ride north to Dachau.
    The Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site was the first Nazi concentration camp in Germany during the Holocaust. It served as a model for all the other camps that followed it. See the photographs, documents, reconstructed cell blocks, crematorium, administration headquarters and much more on a tour of both the camp and museum.
    Find out little-known facts about the Nazis linked to this site, like Heinrich Himmler, and listen to the stories of some of Dachau’s 200,000 prisoners—communists, German dissidents, gay men, and Jehovah’s Witnesses, as well as Jewish and Polish men and women.
    This private tour is a customized experience, so be sure to include any specific requests and feel free to ask the guide questions at any time. After touring the site, spend some free time exploring the museum. Then, return by train to Munich.

    Very sorry you were disappointed in the tour. You have been given a full refund. I also agree the tour was not the best. However, I don't bark and this is a tour by train. The guide cannot control the train schedule. I'm sorry if...More

    Dachau was quite an experience. We started with the documentary which puts one immediately in the picture of the atrocities all concentration camps are famous for. The "museum", put up in the rooms that housed the German officers was also in line with the documentary...More

    Excellent tour. Our private guide was outstanding and answered all of our questions. Let your camera rest on this day and just take it all in. It is very serial and will leave a lasting impression on you. Everything is original there and well preserved.
