After meeting your guide in Marienplatz, take an S-bahn train to Dachau Bahnhof and then a short bus ride to the memorial site.

Visit the SS training facility, the bathhouse, and the main gate with the infamous ‘Arbeit Macht Frei’ slogan.

Your guide will explain the methods of torture and punishments used in the camp, and the various medical experiments carried out on prisoners.

What people are saying about Dachau

Keith was a phenomenal guide. His knowledge of history, current events and the memorial site made our tour so much more interesting. He had lots of compelling stories to tell as well. I would highly recommend this tour and Keith.

Eric was very thorough in his presentation presentation at the concentration camp. He also had a wealth of additional information having been a guide for so long. I highly recommend it

A very informative tour on 14 Oct 2022. Unfortunately I can't remember the guides name but he was very informative. Well worth it to see what took place in Dachau.

Easy to find your guide, did a fantastic job with providing very detailed information during the tour. Welcomed questions and very friendly

Erik was incredibly well informed and gave the experience additional context we would not otherwise have had.
