A sombre and interesting day out. We should all visit

The museum was fascinating and so detailed, its very easy to spend 5hrs or more here. I would say at least 3 are needed though. Very easy to access from Munich by getting the S2... read more

The museum was fascinating and so detailed, its very easy to spend 5hrs or more here. I would say at least 3 are needed though. Very easy to access from Munich by getting the S2 for about 20min from Munich Central followed by a 726 bus which stops directly outside the station and the concentration camp taking about 10min each...

So very hard to believe what a crazy species mankind is. Yet, it still goes on today. It's crazy! The Germans were civilized, intelligent people and still did this. It's scary. Some parts of the world are uncivilized and unintelligent and I can see this crap happening. Great place for all people to see and think about things.

This camp must be visited if you're in the area, properly preserved it's a place that every one in the world should visit at least once in is life (this one or other)... A important lesson about what Humans are capable off, above all that we shouldn't forget it.....

This was a place my family and I wanted to stop at since we were in the area. If you know anything about the camps at all you can imagine the horror that happened. A stop here helps remind a person that there are many evils in this world and we are very blessed to have overcome many of them.... More

If you are comfortable with the transit system in Germany, you can save money by traveling out to Dachau by yourself instead of paying a tour company. The Dachau memorial site has several English speaking tours through out the day for minimal costs and it was completely worth it. I definitely recommend the on site tour, our guide was so... More

This visit must be done, it is only a short train ride from Munich and even though it brings some emotional feelings it has to be seen to be fully understood. Our guide Mickaël (works at the museum) is very knowledgeable and took time to answer our questions and help us understand the situation at the time in a factual... More

Our tour guide was Matt. He was very well informed of the events leading up to World War I and II, during the war and after the liberation of the camp by the allied forces. He gave us 1 hour at the end of the tour to go back and spend some time on our own to explore the exhibits,... More

This was a visit to never forget. The camp is well kept and it is still as true as it gets to what it once was. Save AT LEAST a couple of hours for this visit and wear very comfortable shoes so you can get around the whole area. Simply a must go.

Dachau Concentration Camp is a massive compound that really drives home the conditions, hopelessness and horrors of war - visiting during winter only adds to the bluntness of it. Its the kind of place you walk around quietly, reading the material and reflecting. For this certainly I highly recommend it. As an attraction though, I didn't find it too engaging... More
