On this interesting tour, you will get to know a lot about a dark chapter of German history and the first concentration camp of the NS regime. This was built in 1933 in Dachau, which is located only 15 km away from Munich. More than 30 years later, in 1965, a memorial was created for the victims to give visitors the opportunity to learn about the cruel deeds the prisoners had to suffer.

The Dachau tour leads through the cells, barracks and gas chambers. It explains the significance of the pictures and exhibits in the museum with thought-provoking stories about the prisoners' individual experiences from the construction of the camp to their liberation by the US forces in 1945.

Please note: The guides are officially certified and authorised by the Dachau Memorial Site to give guided tours of the site.

Meeting point: in front of the Tourist Information at Marienplatz, end point at main station
