We opt for an English tour guide and our guide was excellent. I think we learned things out off main scope and we were highlighted with some facts you can only learn if you are a historian. This was a brilliant lesson for our teen-girl...More

This place is a must see and feel experience. Not long on the train to get here and took one audio guide between the four of us! There is so much on the info boards an audio guide is not really required! In the museum...More

Sobering, but necessary tour for all people. Currently reading War and Remembrance by Herman Wouk. Wish I would have read it before visiting. Tour requires lots of walking. Give yourself plenty of time to absorb it all.

I was surprised that this place is not so depressive as I expected, but maybe it is due to the fact that I was never in Auschwitz. Anyway, I can recommend to visit this place. there are many historical artifacts from Nazi era.

If you are in Munich for more than 3 days than it is must see. Easy to come from the city center. 2 hours for visit is enough.

Learned a lot about this place and it’s significant role in WWII. It was very sobering to see the actual compound and reconstructed sleeping/living quarters for prisoners. There is a museum on the grounds and a film available explaining Dachau. The most uncomfortable sight to...More

You can read about it, see the documentaries, hear the arguments, but until you’ve walked the grounds and felt the horrific deeds of other human beings and realized the kind service of others, especially fellow victims, you cannot really begin to comprehend what happened. Unfortunately,...More

There isn’t a charge to tour the grounds but you can rent an audio guide for I think 3€. I don’t think there are guides on site but you can find some online to hire for the day. It depends on how much time you want to spend... More
