Our Guide, Sam is very knowledge and shared all his knowledge with our group of 22 people. We met some nice people in our group. The Dachau Concentration Camp Tour was extensive. We were allowed free time to look around different areas of the camp, read stories and Sam shared photos with us. He told us of the story when he met a past prisoner. Although very sad and heart wrenching everyone needs to see and learn.

It was easy as all we had to do was to meet the guide and he led us through the very thorough tour. Hein was so well versed and gave enough information but didn't overdo it. We wouldn't have been able to get this much out of it on our own.

Located approximately 16 kilometers to the northwest of Munich, the Dachau concentration camp was opened by the chief architect of the Holocaust, Heinrich Himmler. Liberated more than 78 years back, the concentration camp continues to be maintained well for tourists from across the world.

History that's not worth remembering!

Prepare yourself to witness tragedy in the most brutal ways one can imagine on this guided tour of the concentration camp and Memorial Site. The historic site, with its original buildings reconstructed, shows how the victims had to endure the torture by the Nazis. Through the tour, you will learn about the malpractices of the Nazis, such as medical experiments, mass execution, and torture techniques that will leave you mortified. To give you a true sense of the place, pass by the roll-call bunkers, the camp street, bunkers, crematorium, and barracks. Learn about each of these sections from your guide who will delve into bone-chilling details of the inhumanity.

Nandor Glid Monument

Sculptor Nandor Glid built this bronze sculpture with skeletal representations from a barbed wire fence. Observe the details of the sculpture that symbolize suffering, atrocity, and tragedy. It serves as a remembrance to the victims while recalling their horrid fate in 12 years.
