Dachau Concentration Camp and SS Shooting Range Hebertshausen from Munich
USD 33.76
Overview
Avoid the chaos of public transportation, and visit Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site and SS (Schutzstaffel) shooting range in Hebertshausen by the comfort of an air-conditioned coach on this 6.5-hour tour from Munich. First take a guided tour of the memorial site, and spend about an hour and a half exploring the memorial and museum on your own. Then take a short 5-minute ride over to the shooting-range grounds where more than 4,000 casualties happened during WWII.
What to Expect
Meet your group, guide, and coach in central Munich in front of the Karstadt department store, across from the main railway station. After boarding your coach, sit back and relax on the 50-minute ride to Dachau.

Pass by the town as you make your way to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. At the memorial site, start by watching a documentary film about the Nazi camp, and then go on a guided tour. See old photographs, documents, the administration headquarters, areas where prisoners were held, and even the “Arbeit macht frei” plastered on the main camp gates. Gain a better understanding about the seriousness of WWII and the destruction the German Nazis had on their country and the world.

Afterward, set out on your own, and explore the museum exhibits, as well as other parts of the camp that interest you. Once about an hour and a half has passed, meet back at your coach for the short 5-minute ride to the SS (Schutzstaffel) shooting range in Hebertshausen.

The shooting range lies about 1.2 miles (2 km) away from the memorial site, and is rarely, if ever, visited by other tours. It’s the area where prisoners of war were executed by Nazi soldiers. Visit exhibits here, and learn more about the solemn Holocaust history.

Your tour ends with a ride back to Munich aboard your coach.

Please note: It's advised that you bring your own lunch, or eat during your free time at the cafeteria.

Stunning. Every Munich visitor should visit this site.

This site simply cannot be described. A visit is emotional, shocking and scary, especially so in todays world of disturbing leadership, tribalism, racism and religious bigotry. This tour maximizes the experience with detailed information on the rise of Hitler and the subsequent development of camps...More

Shocking but worth it.

An awesome experience! We were shocked when we saw how they were treated and we were shook when reality hit us. Definitely go visit and see this when you are in the area.

Something quite to see

The tour itself was very good except for the rain. My guide was Stefan, he explained everything and even asked us questions. The site is unbelievable to think of how things were after the war started but was not as heart wrenching as auschwitz. But...More

No words

There aren't any words to describe Dachau. It was a very dark part of WWII history. Some of the Camp had been reconstructed, some of the camp was original. But you were struck with the idea of the Concentration Camp. Hebertshausen is the shooting range,...More

Total about 6 hours with travel time. You will have time to grab something to eat at the Visitors Center Restaurant. Teri
