“Old Town (Altstadt) of Dachau”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

April was a pleasant time to visit, though a bit chilly but when the sun is out, it was wonderful. The unusual trees and flowers in the courtyard made the surrounding area picturesque, and when we walked down to the village square, sitting alfresco with wine in hand and looking at the German buildings, and St Jakob church nearby, we sat and enjoyed the village setting and quietness.

“Beautiful Gardens!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I loved the gardens! I went in early November so there weren't many flowers blooming, but the garden paths and trees were gorgeous with the fall leaves and colors. It was a lovely walk through the paths and trees and I would highly recommend this for anyone who really wants to enjoy nature.

“Stunning view and excellent verandah cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

When you get back to the S Bahn station from the Camp use the same train/bus ticket on the 719 circular route to come up here. Its a very short walk from the bus stop in the old town up to the castle. The views back across Munich are excellent as is the cake at the verandah cafe overlooking the garden. A very pleasant place to sit back in the sun and reflect on the darker side of Dachau.

“the palace with a idyllic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

summer breeze, sweet smell of roses in the air, sitting under the shade, feasting on the gorgeous view…this Palace's court garden certainly offers a change of scenery after a solemn visit to Germany’s first concentration camp in Dachau.

The palace itself is modest and miniature but the court rose garden on the hill provides a panoramic view of idyllic Bavarian town while overlooking Munich with the Bavarian Alps in the backdrop. No wonder it is one of the locals’ favorite spots for landscape wedding photos.

“Fabulous Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Not so much a castle but more of a large house. Great views of Dachau/Munich in distance but best part for me was the gardens. Fabulous walk/flowers/plants which takes around an hour to cover. Wouldn't go here on its own but nice diversion if you going to Dachau camp.
