Private Tour: Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site Tour from Munich

Visit Dachau on your day trip from Munich!

This 5-hour 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, the guard who started the camp; 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, go back to the train station with the guide for a return trip to Munich. Your tour concludes at München Hauptbahnhof.

Kai was our guide. What a knowledge, compassionate about history guide. We obtained so much more information that we would have had on our own. This was totally a must do tour.

The tour was very good and our guide Adam was the best. I highly recommend the private tour. He was so knowledgable, there wasn't any question he couldn't answer and we never felt rushed during the tour. It is a very emotional tour, but well worth the visit and we were glad we were able to go while in Germany.

Our guide knew everything there was to know about the third reich. He had the answer or at least a theory to every question, and he was very personable while still being professional. He personalized the tour to the specifications we needed and he was overall the best tour guide I've ever encountered. I recommend this tour to anyone and everyone who wants a thorough tour of Dachau concentration camp.

Tour guide was excellent. Far exceeded my expectations, and I obtained the full experience of the terror and horror that went on. I had looked forward my whole life to being a witness as to what happened there and I did and one more thing off the bucket list to do!
Could not have been better I am very pleased and my wife a Jew was too!!!

We booked this private tour of Dachau because we wanted to really understand the history of Dachau. There is a local tour company Viator contracted with for this tour. Adam, our tour guide picked us up at our hotel right on time. Adam escorted us to the trains to take us to Dachau. While enroute Adam told us history of the area we were traveling through. He was very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. He told us we would walk the same path that the prisoners arriving at the camp did.

Once at Dachau Adam guided us through each of the areas. He gave us an overview of what occurred in each area. He gave us plenty of time to look at photos and read the displays. He explained what was from the original camp and what was rebuilt for the memorial.

The 5 hour tour was over so quickly. We felt that the private tour gave us so much more insight and personal connection to the Memorial than going in a large group tour. Adam guided us back the main train station in Munich. He even helped us find a place for lunch before we parted ways. It was one of the most enjoyable tours we have ever taken

We debated on whether to do the small group or the private group tour, but we are definitely glad we decided on the private tour. Our guide, Scott, met us at our hotel, and took us to the train station. Scott was very knowledgeable and answered any question we had regarding Dachau. If you are debating between the private tour and a small or large group tour, definitely choose the private tour.
