Although visiting a concentration camp would perhaps not be considered 'pleasurable', its historic importance is beyond doubt. On this excursion, we will remember some of the most tragic events of the 20th century, in the very same place they happened.
Dachau Concentration Camp
With Hitler's rise to power, a camp for political prisoners was established in Dachau, and it continued to operate through 12 long years. The main installations were completed in March 1933, with the first prisoners arriving the next day.
With the passage of time, the violence on show in Dachau increased, until in 1941 they began to use it for extermination, becoming a prototypical concentration camp whose model was replicated across Europe.
Over 200,000 prisoners passed through the camp, of whom over 40,000 were assassinated.
At 9 am we leave from the Munich Hauptbahnhof train station to take the 45-minute train to the Dachau concentration camp, found 20 km to the north of Munich.
Once there we will pass through the same gate the prisoners once did, and pass through the courtyard, the entrance hall, the bathrooms, the prison, the barracks, the gas chamber and the cremation ovens, as well as the different commemorative monuments.
Having got to know the day to day life of the prisoners in the concentration camp, and having analysed one of the darkest parts of German history, arrive back in Munich after another 45-minute train ride.
Children under 13 may not visit the camp with the tour.
