Concentration Camp Memorial with a Private Guide and a Private Vehicle
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. On our way back you will hear about the role of Munich as Hitler's "Capital of the Movement" and you will see the site of the former Nazi party headquarters on Königsplatz.
It takes approximately 30 minutes to get from downtown Munich to the Dachau camp memorial by taxi. On the way you will get useful information on the history of Dachau, Munich and the Third Reich. We will spend some 3 hours in the former Nazi camp before we travel back to Munich using a cab 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. Please be aware that if your suggested meeting point is not near Hauptbahnhof (the train station) or Marienplatz (the main square in Munich's historic Old Town) the place of the Nazi headquarters might not be on our route to Dachau and we would either have to skip them or I would have to charge a premium to compensate the driver for his extra work.

Stefan provided my wife and I an outstanding tour of Dachau. We were very impressed with his knowledge of the history of Dachau and other relevant historical events. (and we asked lots of questions) We also enjoyed his stories of individuals he's spoke with that had personal connections with the events.
