Overview

Avoid the chaos of public transportation, and visit Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site and SS (Schutzstaffel) shooting range in Hebertshausen by the comfort of an air-conditioned coach on this 6.5-hour tour from Munich. First take a guided tour of the memorial site, and spend about an hour and a half exploring the memorial and museum on your own. Then take a short 5-minute ride over to the shooting-range grounds where more than 4,000 casualties happened during WWII.
  • 6.5-hour tour of Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site and SS (Schutzstaffel) shooting range in Hebertshausen
  • Visit the memorial site of the first Nazi concentration camp in Germany during WWII
  • See “Arbeit macht frei” on the gates to the camp, as well as the administration headquarters
  • Get free time to explore the memorial and the museum independently
  • Go to the grounds where Nazis guards executed more than 4,000 prisoners of war
  • Round-trip transport by coach included
Meet your group, guide, and coach in central Munich in front of the Karstadt department store, across from the main railway station. After boarding your coach, sit back and relax on the 50-minute ride to Dachau.
Pass by the town as you make your way to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. At the memorial site, start by watching a documentary film about the Nazi camp, and then go on a guided tour. See old photographs, documents, the administration headquarters, areas where prisoners were held, and even the “Arbeit macht frei” plastered on the main camp gates. Gain a better understanding about the seriousness of WWII and the destruction the German Nazis had on their country and the world.
Afterward, set out on your own, and explore the museum exhibits, as well as other parts of the camp that interest you. Once about an hour and a half has passed, meet back at your coach for the short 5-minute ride to the SS (Schutzstaffel) shooting range in Hebertshausen.
The shooting range lies about 1.2 miles (2 km) away from the memorial site, and is rarely, if ever, visited by other tours. It’s the area where prisoners of war were executed by Nazi soldiers. Visit exhibits here, and learn more about the solemn Holocaust history.
Your tour ends with a ride back to Munich aboard your coach.
Please note: It's advised that you bring your own lunch, or eat during your free time at the cafeteria.

Our tour guide Fransziska was an incredible wealth of knowledge, probably spoke English better than me (I'm American), and could elaborate with unique stories and deeper levels of information on every part of the camp and for about question we asked. Probably the best tour I've ever been on. I personally could have used another 30-60 minutes, but overall it is structured, moves efficiently, and you see all of the pertinent areas.

This tour was informative and well done. Gordon was a fantastic guide and his passion was evident. I learned more about this dark period in history on this tour than in my high school history class. Well worth it.

Went on this tour by myself. I enjoyed it very much. My guide was Stefan. He was very informative and even asked us questions. Mind you this concentration camp was a work camp not a death camp so not the same effect as auschwitz. Also get to see the SS shooting range which something else. To hear the story of the shooting of so many Russian soldiers. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

This was an absolute humbling experience. My daughter and I came to Germany specifically for the concentration camps, and the tour definitely did not disappoint. Our tour guide was Gordon and he was simply amazing! His knowledge was outstanding. He taught us specifics about the camp that we had no idea even happened. He went above and beyond for us on this tour. I highly encourage others to take this tour and definitely book with Gordon!!

The bus tour to Dachau was very humbling. We are very glad we took this tour, despite the somber atmosphere of the location. Our guide, Fredrika, was amazing - she told us so many interesting details about the camp that we wouldn't have learned from just reading the plaques and information in the museum. We also were very happy that the tour included the SS shooting range as well. It was another piece of the history of the camp that is important to include on tours. We highly recommend taking a guided tour of this camp as it gives you such a better understanding of the location. Hearing from a resident of Dachau also made it more authentic.

The Camp was very moving, it was quite a sight to see one of the labour camps from the second world war. It shows a sad but important part of human history. The SS Shooting Range was worth seeing, we saw a memorial to the people who died and learned about what Germans used it for and what the Americans did when they took it over.
