This full-day excursion begins with a tour guide meet and greet at Marienplatz, the main square in central Munich. After boarding a train there, it’s approximately a 20-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 well-known Nazis linked to this site, like Heinrich Himmler, the guard who started the camp. And listen to the heart-wrenching stories of some of Dachau’s 200,000 prisoners — communists, German dissidents, gay men, Jehovah’s Witnesses, as well as Jewish and Polish men and women. It’s a chilling reminder of the events that took place here.
After touring the site, return to the train station with the guide for a trip back to Munich. Following a break for lunch (own expense), take a Third Reich walking tour through the city. See where Hitler joined the German Workers Party, where the infamous German SS began and much more.
