What You Can Expect

Munich WWII Combo: Dachau Concentration Camp and Third Reich Walking Tour

Visit Dachau Concentration Camp on your tour!

Dachau Concentration Camp Tour (5 hours):
Meet your guide at Munich Central Station, and then board a train for your short journey to Dachau, just under half an hour away. On arrival, walk the short distance to the town’s former concentration camp and head inside for your morning tour.

In its horrific Nazi heyday, Dachau Concentration Camp was known as the parent camp; it was the first of its kind, and acted as a training facility for the mass genocide that occurred during the days of the Third Reich. Persecuted people from all walks of life – political dissidents, Poles, Jews and more – were sent there and its total intake is thought to have hit the 210,000 mark.

Today the camp exists as a memorial site, but many of its original features remain intact. Walk around with your guide and learn little-known facts and tales about the well-known Nazis linked to the site such as Heinrich Himmler, the feared guard who started the camp. Wander past the entranceway bearing the ironic tag Arbeit macht frei (work makes you free), and see the bunker, crematorium and administration headquarters where many a fate was decided.

After exploring the site, return to the train station with your guide and travel back to Munich by train.

Munich Third Reich Walking Tour (2.5 hours):
The following day, head to the prearranged point in central Munich to meet your guide, and then set off on your walking tour around the city to trace the roots of the Third Reich. Home of the Nazi headquarters, Munich was the city where Adolf Hitler’s voice resonated around the streets as during his major speeches.

The exact sights taken are in varied for each tour, but examples of historic buildings that you may see include the former headquarters of the Gestapo and the place where the infamous ‘beer hall putsch’ of 1923 took place – the event that first propelled Hitler to the public eye.

Listen to historical tidbits and tales about the rise of the Nazi party from your guide and look at black-and-white photos of the city taken during the Third Reich. Your guide has detailed knowledge on the social issues and events of Nazi Germany, so feel free to ask questions and chat about sites of particular interest.

After 2.5 hours exploring the streets of Nazi Munich, make your way back to the start point where your walking tour finishes.

Dachau you can do yourself by train easily, but the walking tour was excellent for seeing places you would pass without realising their significance.

I was in Munich for 7 days. We had a very full 7 days and did a few tours. This was my favourite, the highlight for me, and will be my most memorable part. Our tour guide, Mat was very knowledgable, it was nice to listen to him telling us the history right from his memory. He knew names and dates and answered any question asked, and he was passionate about what he was telling us. This is a part of our history. If you go to Munich, do not miss this. It's a way to pay your respect, and so the victims will not be forgotten. We ended up only doing the Dachau tour, not the Third Reich part of it, as it was suppose to be on two different days, but it got rolled into one day and after 5 hours at Dachau we just had no energy for another three hours doing another tour. So if you book this one, I would suggest to make sure you do it on two separate days as both together may just be too much.

My guide was exceptional - the Brit. He knew a lot, demonstrated compassion for victims, and presented a balanced view of this terrible phase of German history. Fantastic tour on a chilly day. Thank you.

Excellent tour of Dachau. Our guide was knowledgeable, articulate and engaging. We decided to skip the Third Reich tour, which I regret.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

For our Dachau tour we had a German citizen that gave the tour, which added a little more weight to his words. There is a lot of walking on this tour, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes. As far the actual Dachau memorial site, there is a lot to see but the tour guide does a great job hitting the high points and providing additional information.

For the Third Reich walking tour our guide was very knowledgeable about the subject and explained everything in detail often making comparisons to current times. It was very interesting to walk around Munich and see some of the important locations, as well as hear the history. I would recommend this tour to anyone that has an interest in this part of Munich's history.

very informative guide. Sabri was so nice.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

The tour is a must see. It was very informational and our guide Diane was very knowledgeable on the subject. We greatly enjoyed our tour. However, we would've liked maybe an extra 20 minutes to properly look the museum exhibits. But otherwise, we had a great experience. Thank you!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Both of these tours were well worth the time spent. The tour guides on both were more than willing to answer all questions and were very informative.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

History experience everyone should take. Steve was amazing with knowledge of WW2 history. Glad we did it.
