    Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site
    Stop: 2 hours
    Meet your guide at Munich Central Station or your centrally located Munich hotel, then take a train to Dachau where a bus will then transport you to Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. During the Third Reich, Dachau was referred to as the ‘parent camp,’ serving as a training ground for the genocide to follow. A staggering range of persecuted people were sent to Dachau — including communists, German dissidents, gay men, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Jewish people and Polish citizens — upward of 200,000 people were 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, bunker and the 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 victims and perpetrators whose names were linked to the camp. Heinrich Himmler helped set up Dachau, and used it as a place to train the SS ("black shirts") guards. If there is something you would like to know more about, simply let your guide know. After exploring the camp, take some free time to browse the museum if you like, and then return by train to Munich Central Station.

My husband and I were spending a day in Munich before flying on to Norway and Iceland in February. We decided to take a tour of Dachau, but our plane would arrive in Munich too late for any of the group tours to the camp. We chose to do an afternoon private tour with Nuremberg

My 15 year old daughter and I booked this tour online. Our guide was on time, very kind and friendly. I can't say the tour blew us away. I felt like we had to ask all the questions to get the info versus being told the high points. Our guide was a trooper as we got caught in

Our guide, Achim, was well-versed in his knowledge of the historical events regarding the war and the Holocaust, and we were rapt with attention, as though we were students in a class! As he explained everything, it was as though he'd been there. Throughout the Dachau
