Private Dachau Tour with Private Transfer

This Dachau Memorial Site Tour will inform you of why the concentration camp system came into existence, and how Dachau was the first permanent camp and model for the entire network. Learn stories about survivors, the camps day to day operation and how the Dachau evolved from a camp for re-education to extermination through work.


Dachau Concentration Camp was the first permanent camp to be opened under the Nazi regime and eventually became the basis for the rest of the camp system. The SS controllers of the camp system were trained at Dachau in the school of terror and were told to take with them the "Dachau Spirit" to other camps they were transferred to.
Today the Dachau Concentration camp Memorial Site has become an extremely important location for honoring the dead but also a warning for the living.
On this private tour of the Dachau Memorial Site I will share with you how the Dachau concentration camp opened, the evolution of the camp system of its 12 years of operation 1933-1945, the administration process of new prisoners, daily life for the prisoners and how it has become an integral location for learning and reconciliation.
