Dachau, Germany, is a small city in the country’s largest federal state, Bavaria. Once, Dachau was a popular retreat destination for Germany kings and dukes. Unfortunately, amusement is no longer the reason to visit Dachau, as this city was where the Nazis built the first concentration camp. These days, the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site is one of the most-visited former concentration camps by those that want to learn more about World War II and life within the concentration camps.

Entrance to the memorial site is free, but without a guide you will miss out on a lot of information, so it is recommended to spend a few euro on an audio guide or to join a guided tour. The latter should be booked in advance. While Dachau was not a extermination camp, more political prisoners were murdered here than in any other camp in Nazi Germany.

Most visitors only visit the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site as a day trip from Munich. Tours can be booked online, at travel agencies in Munich and also your Munich hostel may be able to book you on a tour. Dachau can also easily be visited independently. A S-Bahn connection runs several times per hour between the two cities.

Dachau, Germany, is not just the concentration camp, it is also a small city. While there are not many landmarks other than the memorial site, you might as well book a hostel in Dachau, Bavaria, Germany, and stay overnight. The architecture of your chosen Dachau, Bavaria, Germany hostel is a sight on its own. Dachau is a quiet town, but it does have all the facilities that you may need as a visitor, and by public transport you can reach Munich’s city centre in less than half an hour.
