Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site Tour from Munich by Train - Munich, Germany

About This Tour

Duration: 5 hours
Location: Munich, Germany
Product Code: 2666CAMP

Activity Details

Venture out of Munich by local transport for a comprehensive tour through the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. An authorized guide will show you the many remaining historic buildings, and give you the story of what happened in this terrible place between 1933 and 1945. Today, the former Nazi concentration camp is a place of memory, pilgrimage and education, and makes for an illuminating day trip from Munich.

Please note: the Dachau Memorial Site does not permit children under 14 to attend this tour.

Join up with your guide and group at Munich Central Train Station (Hauptbahnhof), and then travel by train and bus (transport costs included) to Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site, just under an hour away.

Outside the town of Dachau, a memorial site stands on the grounds of the former concentration camp. Dachau was the first Nazi concentration camp in Germany during the Holocaust, and it was the originator and training ground for the vast order of brutality that spread over half of Europe in the wake of the armies of the Third Reich, and which ultimately culminated in history's greatest crime.

On this half-day tour, you'll spend around three hours exploring the memorial site with your guide. Tour the exhibition center and former compound, and learn about the history of Dachau, World War II, and the Holocaust. See reconstructed barracks, guard houses, cells, crematorium, and administration headquarters, and take a moment to reflect at the site's memorials.

While each camp was responsible for its own particular form of barbarism, what distinguished Dachau is that almost everything that happened in the system as a whole happened at some level there. Almost every category of victim passed through its Arbeit Macht Frei (Work Sets You Free) gate, including German dissidents, outspoken clergymen, Jehovah's Witnesses, gay men, Jewish people and Polish citizens. Today's memorial site combines the historical authenticity of the original environment and its many surviving buildings with the function of a modern exhibition center. It is a place of memory, of pilgrimage and of education.

After your visit, your guide will accompany you back to Munich, where your tour concludes at the original departure point.
