Learn about the History of the Nazi Reign in Germany

In the spring of 1933, the Dachau Concentration Camp was one of the first camps to be opened during the Nazi reign between 1933 and 1945. It has gone on to become one of the most widely recognized and resentfully remembered spots of Germany. The Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial was constructed with the goal of highlighting the barbaric acts of the German Third Reich. With more than 800,000 people visiting the memorial every year, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Munich. Your tour will begin from the Radius Tours Office or Marienplatz in Munich (as per the ticket option chosen). You will be taken to the memorial site by bus or train, and the transport will take approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour. Once you have reached the memorial site, you will be led through the concentration camp by your guide. The sprawling Jourhaus is the first thing that you will see, with the infamous words “Arbeit Macht Frei” which translates to “Work will set you free” etched on top.

A Glimpse Of The Past

You will garner several historical facts on your guided tour in English, and get an incredible insight into the history of Germany and Hitler’s dictatorship. The guides are specially trained and will convey these disconcerting topics with a great deal of sensitivity, and respect for the victims. At the same time, they are extremely knowledgeable, and there is no doubt that they will be able to answer most of your questions. You will go through the various sites of the memorial. You can see the roll call square, the barracks where the victims were forced to work, and the bunkers where they had to live in atrocious conditions. The gas chambers, where mass executions were carried out are sure to leave a chill down your spine, as your guides explain the procedure that was followed and talk about the thousands that were murdered there. The Dachau tour is thought-provoking and is an experience that you will never forget. There is no doubt that you will be deeply moved at the end of the 5-hour tour of this historic location.
