Experience

Highlights
  • Explore the Dachau Memorial with some of the few guide that are authorized to conduct tours at the site
  • Discover where prisoners were registered when they first arrived at the camp
  • Visit the former gas chambers and crematorium
  • Stand in Roll Call Square, where the fate of the prisoners was decided
Full description
Visit Dachau, the former concentration camp outside Munich. Since 1965, the site has been used as a memorial and a place of education.

Take a 5-hour guided tour with professional guides who are authorized to provide a tour within the Memorial Site, something that very few guides in the business receive permission to do.

During the visit, you will see the Jourhaus, where prisoners first entered the camp and passed through the gate cast with the now infamous words "Arbeit Macht Frei" - Work Will Set You Free. Continue to the shuntroom, where prisoners were registered and given a number as their new identity. You will also see the barracks and Roll Call Square, where the fate of the prisoners was decided twice a day, and later, the former gas chambers and crematorium.
