Concentration Camp Memorial with a Private Guide
The Dachau Memorial Tour will raise your awareness for the fatal consequences of the Nazi tyranny and for the suffering of millions who were persecuted politically or racially during the Third Reich period. You will see the prototype Nazi camp which was opened 12 miles away from Munich right after Adolf Hitler had risen to power. The tour includes the documentation centre, the remains of the actual camp and a 21 minute documentary film. In addition, I will tell you breathtaking details that I have learned about in 8 years working on the camp site and talking with survivors, Dachau locals, SS relatives and school teachers who take their pupils on field trips to the camp memorial. I strongly recommend utilising public transport for this tour, which is very efficient, clean and reliable in Munich, but in case you prefer to go there and back in a private vehicle it is always possible to arrange for a cab, even at the last minute.
It takes approximately 40 minutes to get from the Munich Hauptbahnhof train station to the Dachau camp memorial. On the way you will get useful information on the history of Dachau and other areas that we cross. We will spend some 3 hours in the former Nazi camp before we travel back to Munich using public transportation again. There is a possibility to stop for refreshments at the memorial site. If you have got mobility issues I can provide a very comfortable electro scooter at the camp memorial for no extra charge, but please let me know about that beforehand.

What a fantastic tour and history lesson! Stefan was most knowledgeable about our Dachau tour. He guided 5 of us through a time in history that was so horrific and gave us details you could never find on your own! I highly recommend this tour and particularly Stefan for your guide! He is taking us on another tour of Munich today and we are excited to learn more things about this beautiful city we've been to many times.
