will i make it to Dachau? how can i do this?

Hello. I have been trying to figure this out, and I figured maybe you all would be able to help me. I know it is all resting on my flight getting in when scheduled, but I really would like to visit dachau. I arrive on a Wed at around noon. I am guessing it will take awhile to show my passport and such. I know that Dachau closes at 5:00. I will not be able to make it there any other day, so i have figured out that I can take a train there or take a taxi and head straight there, and check into my hotel after, BUT what do i do with my luggage? I read on dachau's website that there are no lockers or any place to put your luggage. I am guessing they don't let you wheel it around in there either? Any ideas or insight?

One option would be to travel via Munich Hbf (the main train station) and store your luggage there into one of the lockers. Not the most direct route, but only a small detour.

DB timetable


Start: MUC

Destination: KZ-Gedenkstaette, Dachau

and add as a stopover

Via: Muenchen Hbf (with a stopover of e.g. 00:15)

MVV tariff applies which is not shown by the DB timetable. Buy a day ticket for the whole MVV network which is EUR 10,80.

Best you catch a cab, it's not far from the airport.

From Dachzau to Mu8nich use the S-Bahn, a suburb train running every 20 minutes to downtown Munich.

They will take care of your luggage for sure. Don't worry.
