In March 1933, Heinrich Himmler ordered the construction of the one of Germany's first concentration camps in a small town near Munich; Dachau. The first 5,000 prisoners were political enemies of the Nazi regime.

In the following years, other social, ethnic, and racial enemies were imprisoned as Dachau went on to become the only concentration camp to remain active during the entire Third Reich period (1933-1945). At the time of liberation, over 200,000 prisoners from more than 30 nations had been imprisoned there.

During the 1960's, the Dachau memorial was founded to investigate their plight. On this 5-hour tour with memorial-accredited, native English speaking guides, you will explore what has become one of the most important centers of remembrance, contemplation, and learning in Germany today.

This tour involves 35min S-Bahn journey (approx), and 5 minute bus ride, and is included in the tour ticket price.

With the advise of Dachau Memorial Site, we do not recommend the tour for children under 13 years old.
