Guided tour for groups: KZ-Gedenkstätte

KZ-Gedenkstätte Dachau

Visit the concentration camp memorial site in Dachau with a specially trained guide and learn more about the first permanent Nazi concentration camp after the seizure of power by Adolf Hitler.  

The Dachau concentration camp memorial site is located about 30 minutes northwest of Munich. On the journey from Munich to Dachau (either by bus or public transport) you will learn more about the time of National Socialism in Munich as well as about the district town of Dachau, which was first mentioned in a document in 806 and today has a population of about 45,000. A meeting point on site at the memorial is also possible.

In 1933, only a few weeks after Adolf Hitler was appointed Reich Chancellor, the first Bavarian concentration camp was established on the outskirts of the town of Dachau. It was considered a "model camp" and central training centre for SS men. More than 200,000 prisoners from over 40 nations were imprisoned in Dachau Concentration Camp and its external facilities. On 29 April 1945 units of the US Army liberated Dachau Concentration Camp. Thanks to the survivors' initiative, the memorial was opened in May 1965. To this day, the aim of the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site is to commemorate the victims, to inform about the events of that time and to promote a discussion of the National Socialist crimes.

With your guide you will visit the former SS grounds, the roll call area, the Jourhaus with camp gate, the barracks, the crematorium area and the prisoners' bath. You will also visit the main exhibition in the former farm building, where the fate of the prisoners - from their arrival in the concentration camp to their life in the camp and their death or liberation - is conveyed through reports, biographies and drawings of the prisoners. 

The screening of the documentary film "Concentration Camp Dachau 1933-1945" in the cinema hall of the former farm building can be scheduled during your visit on request.
