This place is a must visit in Munich as there is so much history. I spent about 4 hours there and did not finish reading all the information. It might be worth getting a tour guide if you're not a big fan of reading.

It is very straightforward to get to Dachau Concentration Camp by public transport - take S2 in the direction of Petershausen to Dachau station, alight and transfer to bus 726 which is right outside the train station. There will be signs to guide you. It is about 7 stops on the bus, alight at "KZ-Gedenkstatte", and you will have arrived... More

Traveling for business, I had a free day and went to Dachau. The memorial is easily accessible via public transit from Munich. It was winter, snow was falling, which added to the solemn nature of the experience. We had roughly 4 hours to tour the memorial and used every minute of it. Crowds were light and if it is busy...

I found this to be a tasteful and fitting memorial site. Admission is free and guides (both audio and local guides) are reasonably priced. We went with the audio guide, thinking that the local guide of 2.5hrs might be too long. How wrong we were! Others on TA suggested around 3 hours which I think is a good time to... More

If in the Munich area, a visit to Dachau is a must. It was my first visit to a concentration camp and left me wanting to learn more about the treatment of the Jews and what they went through. Dachau is well preserved and left me with goose bumps.

As there were three of us, and we were flying out of Munich airport in the evening, we were able to purchase an "anywhere on the network" ticket that covered all of us (actually up to 5 adults travelling, and 2 children=1 adult) for 23 euros, which included out transport to the airport as well - a bargain. We travelled... More

Wow! Difficult to describe the emotions that were running through me when walking through the camp. Although you can get an audio guide, please get a tour guide who will be able to provide you with a more in-depth description of what happened during those terrible years. We managed to book a tour through In Munich and our guide Marcin... More

If you are going to Germany I firmly believe you should visit this place or a similar memorial site. It holds so much meaning, and I think everyone will take something away from being in a place with such history. I advise finding a tour company to take you around as well as it can be difficult to understand everything... More

We joined a pre-booked tour for a three hour tour around Dachau. What a place. I learned so much (mainly from the guide) andhe horrors that took place feel so recent and it felt so emotional at times. Wrap up warm on a cold day!

This is not the proverbial 'walk in the park', but a grim part of history. We visited this haunting site early on a cold December morning and this made it even more grim. When walking through the iron gates stating 'Arbeit macht frei', I realised that over 200 000 persons from throughout Europe were imprisoned here in the Dachau concentration... More
