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.
