What It Is
An unpleasant but important part of Munich's history during WWII and the years leading up to it was the creation of the Nazi prison and forced labour camp, located just outside of a town which was once known for its picturesque scenery and medieval history.
For an authentic and unglorified lesson in the events of the Holocaust, you can travel to the infamous Dachau Concentration Camp and Memorial Grounds with an authorised local guide.
This 5-hour excursion from Munich will take you by public train and bus to the former Nazi Prison where a sensitive and knowledgeable guide will take you all areas of the camp including the remaining buildings and exhibition centre.
During the 3 hours at the Memorial Site your guide will talk you through the camp, its function, the oppression on its occupants and the warped Nazi ideology that allowed atrocities and genocide to take place.
