The Dachau Concentration Camp was the first permanent camp built by the Nazi Party of Germany. It opened on March 22nd 1933, only 2 months after Adolf Hitler’s rise to power and liberated on April 29th 1945.
Dachau was the only Concentration Camp to have existed for the full 12 years of Hitler’s dictatorship. In the minds of the Nazis, especially Heinrich Himmler, it was by far the most important camp within their system and became the model for all others that followed.
“Dachau - the significance of this name will never be erased from German history. It stands for all concentration camps which the Nazis established in their territory.” Eugen Kogon
The site is one of the most well preserved former camps left in Europe today. Our highly experienced guides discuss all aspects of camp life and death for the hundreds of thousands of prisoners that passed through the gates between 1933 and 1945. Although the camp was liberated 70 years ago, the history we can learn from Dachau is very relevant to the world around us today.
Visiting a former Nazi Concentration Camp is one of the most important things to do on a trip around Europe, and by far the most important thing to do in Munich. Dachau’s accessibility and importance as a centre for education and reconciliation makes it a day that is impossible to forget for a very long time.
