Full description

Take a 5-hour tour of the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial, a place of memory and of education. To visit it can be a challenge, but also a deeply moving and memorable experience. A professional guide, trained and authorized by the Memorial site, will organize all travel arrangements, taking you on the return journey by train and bus from Munich.

You will get a comprehensive tour of the entire area, including all the surviving original buildings, the museum exhibition center, and the cinema, which screens an English language documentary film. The guides are trained to convey often difficult and disturbing material to you with sensitivity, with dignity, with respect for the victims, and without recourse to cheap sensationalism.

This tour was great! Radius Tours was incredibly helpful. Jake was an awesome tour guide! Used to be a high school teacher so really knows how to keep a group engaged. His own family history was very interesting and woven into the tour seamlessly. Adds a personal touch. Time at the site felt a bit rushed through the museum portion, could use about 30 min on your own to explore. Overall really great! A must do!

The visit to Dachau, if you are in Munich, is an experience that must be done. The place is a Memorial and if you place yourself in historical reality it is painful to understand what men are capable of doing to others without justification and by power. Very emotional visit.

Such an interesting place to see. Jeff our tour guide was brilliant and his knowledge of this time period was brilliant. Unfortunately, we weren’t given much time to have a look around the museum however, he did say it would take you years to see everything. It is a very cold place (not helped by snow) however, would dress warm as the tour was mainly outside a part from little visits to inside buildings.
