Seeing Dachau isn't easy, but that's exactly why everyone should go. To stand in the crematorium, next to the ovens, is an experience that will stay with you. It's unimaginable that these horrors actually happened, but it's important to know that they did, and to make sure they never happen again.

Calling the visit "excellent" would be wrong. Unforgettable maybe is a better word. The memorial site is not for the weak stomached. Provides an in depth insight into our very recent history and the horrors that surrounded the concentration camps. A tourist must visit and is easily accessible from Munich on public transport.

It is hard to believe that the atrocities carried out there, and at the other camps took place only 70 years ago. We went on a cold day, and could not imagine what it must have like for the prisoners to stand out in the parade square for hours and hours in the freezing cold with very little clothing on....

We visited with my mom (74) and my son (13). It was very interesting. The guide tour was not expensive and given in english. (Other languages also available) Easy to walk through. Take something to drink with you. A piece of history that must be seen!

We spent a foggy, chilly November morning here and I'll never forget it. It's like a scene from a history book and something everyone should see.

I have Auschwitz on my bucket list and am on a 2 week visit to Germany with my husband. He is here in Munich for business. We spent the first week driving the romantic road having a lovely visit through Bavaria. He surprised me by scheduling a tour of Dachau as he has zero interest in this type of thing.... More

Concentration camp - Dachau With "Arbeit Macht Frei" on the gate, this is a significant irony that sparks a chilling worthwhile awakening. At here, you can get to know about the history of WWII and the experience at the camp, which is depressing yet important at the same time. Germany have done something terribly wrong, but they faced it and... More

A grim, sobering experience and reminder of man's inhumanity to man. Worthwhile taking time to visit the site if you're in the Munich area.

Using our multi-day all network pass, we travelled from Marienplatz to Dachau on S2 and bus 726. Took one of the memorial site English tours. Guide was excellent and provided a comprehensive history of the site including pre- and post-war, with connections to current events in the world. Very engaging guide and encouraged visitors to ask questions. My wife was... More

In Dachau things seem more sanitized than compared to the Auschwitz compound which I would say has a more chilling cast. Here there are more symbols of hope dotting the landscape - chapels here and there for visitors to ponder over the inhumanities people can descend to. A worthwhile trip from Munich to remind ourselves of the darkness that exists... More
