Full description
Soon after the Nazis took power, the Reichsführer SS (Heinrich Himmler) ordered the construction of Dachau to serve as a special prison for political, and later social and ethnic, enemies of Nazi Germany. By the time American soldiers liberated the camp in 1945, more than 32,000 people had lost their lives to the camp's deadly conditions and the guards brutality.

Take a 3-hour guided tour of the camp with professional guides who are authorized to provide the tour within the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial, 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 crematorium and gas chambers.
