What To Expect

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.

Traveler Tips

Good for teens to learn about the atrocities that were committed during this time period, but not recommended for smaller children.
We recommend a private tour for this visit since we left with better understanding and ability to ask more questions rather than a group tour.
Even though she had been there before and had taught history in school, she thought that the presentation from Brandon provided a lot of new information and was well worth taking the tour.

Excellent Tour of Dachau
Shelly_N, Jan 2022
As sobering of an experience visiting Dachau was, it is a tour well worth taking. Our guide was very informative, factual, and knew the history of the Memorial throughout its time in World War 2 as well as post that time and how the memorial came to be. Very interesting and time well spent.
It was a good tour but way too expensive for the tour and what was included
JohnD_E, Oct 2021
Seeing it in person gives you an actual idea what happened and more realistic what the prisoners actually went to
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Sorry you thought the tour was too expensive, however you booked a private tour which includes an officially certified Dachau Memorial guide meeting you at your hotel at the time of your choosing, the cost of transportation to and from the Dachau Memorial, and the flexibility of matching the tour to your itinerary. Private tours in Germany are not as cheap as in some other countries. There are group tours of Dachau available for people who are looking for a cheaper option.
Never again

To see the sites and understand what happened but to know we are going to remember so we don’t repeat
Somber and great learning experience.

Somber and a great learning experience. Our tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable. Some of the facts were very hard to digest,but our tour guide was very gracious in giving us space to take these painful events. A very worthwhile trip. I highly recommend it.
Excellent Tour

Mat was really great! He was engaging and very knowledgeable. I took the tour with my three children 18, 21 and 21. He really responded well to their questions providing context and examples. We are from the US and he shared some current day thonking to help broaden our thinking. Excellent!
English Speaking Tour of Dauchau for family of 4
Lindsey_M, Feb 2020
My husband, two adult daughters (early 20s) & I spent the day with Jason for English language tour of Dachau. After promptly meeting us in our hotel lobby, he drove with us into Dachau from Munich in our rental car. Logistically, our trip was perfect from door to door, parking and the drive were easy, I drove the 30 minute trip with gps & Jason began with an overview of Dachau carefully & professionally answering our questions. Jason is an excellent tour guide. His has vast knowledge of WWII, Hitler & the Third Reich coupled with sensitivity explaining Dauchau complex history & it's significance today as a Memorial Site. We highly recommend Jason Eilers.
Excellent And Worthwhile Tour
Rebecca_H, Dec 2019
My husband and I toured Dachau this week. Our tour guide was Jeff. He was amazing and so very knowledgeable. He met us at the Munich train station and guided us to Dachau. The site, as a memorial is so well done. I found it a fitting tribute to those who died there as well as those who suffered and survived. Is it hard to see the pictures and the video? Yes but...I think it is extremely important to tour it. With the rise of hate and hate groups around the world we must always remember what happened there and do all in our power to prevent it from ever happening again. Please consider touring Dachau when you are in the area. We must never forget.
Great tour and great guide
Cosmopolitan826442, Nov 2019
Our guide was Keith and he was amazing. So respectful, so informative and so helpful. This tour is not one you can gush about - its sobering. The tram and train ride was great - a good introduction for us. Keith took us all over the camp - explained everything very well and with so much respect. Dachau is confronting - theres not much else you can say. Keith was fantastic and we cannot recommend him highly enough.

Jason did a very nice job for us. He handled the train and shuttle travel and then conducted the tour.
