What You Can Expect
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.
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!
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.
History experience everyone should take. Steve was amazing with knowledge of WW2 history. Glad we did it.
An excellent tour! Informative and helpful tour guides for both the Dachau and Third Reich parts of the tour.

You must request Keith to be your tour guide! Keith is literally a walking encyclopedia. The tour was conducted very respectably and we learned a lot of new information that we were not aware of, this really helped better our understanding of Munich and its history. Me and my sister did 3 different tours with this company and this one was the best by far! If your in Munich please do not miss out on the opportunity of getting a new perspective of the area and concentration camps.
This was a very good tour, very somber to see. Our guide was very good and informative.
The Dachau tour was a very profound experience. Our guide Keith was very informative and a great guide for that type of tour.
The Third Reich walking tour was very interesting and I learned a lot about Munich and how its history is still in plain sight. Definitely a must if you are visiting Munich.
Both tour guides where very knowledgeable Roland and Geoff. Really enjoyed the walking tour and Dachau was very treated with respect
Our tour was very nice and interesting. Both of our tour guides were very knowledgeable. Our Guide in Dachau had the sensibility to explain the horrors of the concentration camp in a good way. Our guide in Munich Irish person was very knowledgeable. Michele and I were very happy with it
Very humbling but not as confronting as we expected it to be. Movies had desensitised us. Learnt many facts we were not aware of.
We had to do both tours on the one day as we were flying out next day. The tour operator informed us the Munich walking tour is only done in winter.
At the end of the two tours we were the only ones who also did the morning tour who finished without pulling out of the Minich walk. This could be something you could clarify with the operator.
Don't get us wrong, we thought the tours were very informative but two on the one day was obviously too much for most people.
