Private Dachau Tour
In this history tour we go back to the dark past of Germany between 1933 and 1945. Its necessary to talk about the economic and political conditions of the Third Reich and about its impact on Germany today. As an officially authorized guide I will show you all parts of Hitlers first concentration camp, which became a model for all the other camps in central Europe. You will see the jour house, the maintenance building, cells, barracks, religious memorials and the gas chamber. I will explain you the most important exhibits of the museum and give guidelines according to the historic facts. You get details about individual cases, about the way, the camp war organized and about systemized torture and murder. The tour includes a 22 minutes long documentary.
After we have met we go by train to the city of Dachau, located 12 miles in the northwest of Munich, and change than to a local bus. The trip from Munich to the Memorial needs about 50 minutes. On the way you will get already information about the tour. We start at the visitors center and walk through the camp site. For handicaped people there is the option to get a buggy (electro scooter) if its available yet. The tour will last around 3 hours at the camp.

This is a powerful tour and Ulrich did a very good job with it. We learned a tremendous amount and he provided quite a bit of information about Dachau and its history. He is a very nice person who is easy to spend time with. We would definitely recommend Ulrich and this tour!
