What You Can Expect

Small-Group Dachau Concentration Camp Tour from Munich

Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Small Group Tour from Munich

Just outside the town of Dachau, a memorial site stands on the grounds of the former concentration camp. Dachau was the originator and training ground for the vast order of brutality that spread over half of Europe in the wake of the armies of the Third Reich, and which ultimately culminated in history's greatest crime.

2015 marked the 70th anniversary of the liberation of most Nazi concentration camps in the closing months of WWII. All over Europe, advancing Allied soldiers set free the survivors of camp after camp. Those who emerged told a shocked and disbelieving world of the full horror of a network of murder and degradation that had first been set in motion in 1933.

While each camp was responsible for its own particular form of barbarism, what distinguished Dachau is that almost everything that happened in the system as a whole happened at some level there. Almost every category of victim passed through its Arbeit macht frei (Freedom through Work) gate, including German dissidents, outspoken clergymen, Jehovah's Witnesses, gay men, Jewish people and Polish citizens. Today's memorial site combines the historical authenticity of the original environment and its many surviving buildings with the function of a modern exhibition center. It is a place of memory, of pilgrimage and of education.

This is one of those tours that is a must. Very somber at times but is a reminder of a terrible time in history that cannot be allowed to be repeated. Our guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job. There is a lot of walking involved in seeing all aspects of the Concentration Camp Museum.

My tour guide was very very knowledgable about Dachau and was really helpful and accommodating to the tour group. Not everyone was familiar with the world history, and our guide was very patient with all of our questions. I enjoyed the tour very much and felt like I learned a lot!

This was an amazing, moving tour. Our guide Natale was so knowledgeable and really guided us through the camp. She had tremendous insights and knowledge about Dachau. My only regret is that we didn't take her next tour on the third reich.
