Full-Day Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site Tour from Munich by Train
Visit Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site, the first permanent concentration camp to be built by the Nazi Party, on this 6-hour tour from Munich. Travel by train from the Bavarian capital to Dachau, where you'll learn about the camp’s prisoners, gain insight into life under Nazi rule, and visit the visitors' center, reconstructed barracks, gas chambers and other rooms.
What to Expect
Meet your professional guide at a central Munich location from where you will start your full-day Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site tour by train. Learn about some of the camp's prisoners while you hear about Dachau's creation, operation and evolution, as well as how the camp became Germany's most important place for education and remembrance.

Dachau was the first permanent concentration camp built by Germany's Nazi Party and the most important camp within their system. It opened only two months after Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933, and it was the only concentration camp that existed for the full 12 years of Hitler’s dictatorship. 

During this tour with your Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site-qualified guide you will learn why the camp opened and who were the first prisoners to arrive. You'll also hear about the camp's evolution, development and SS training facilities, as well as the registration, categorization and treatment of prisoners.

See Jourhaus, the entrance building and gateway into the camp, the roll call square Appellplatz, and Memorial Site Museum in the former maintenance building. Listen to your guide telling you about the barracks, prisoner life and daily routine, camp perimeter fence and guard towers, the International Memorial, Nandor Glid Sculpture, religious memorials and Barrack X, the two crematoriums, mass graves, and the gas chamber.

Your tour then concludes back in central Munich.
