- Informative, friendly and professional guide
- Small group ensures personal service
Just outside the town of Dachau, a memorial site stands on the grounds of the former concentration camp. Dachau was the originator and training ground for the vast order of brutality that spread over half of Europe in the wake of the armies of the Third Reich, and which ultimately culminated in history's greatest crime.
2015 marked the 70th anniversary of the liberation of most Nazi concentration camps in the closing months of WWII. All over Europe, advancing Allied soldiers set free the survivors of camp after camp. Those who emerged told a shocked and disbelieving world of the full horror of a network of murder and degradation that had first been set in motion in 1933.
While each camp was responsible for its own particular form of barbarism, what distinguished Dachau is that almost everything that happened in the system as a whole happened at some level there. Almost every category of victim passed through its Arbeit macht frei (Freedom through Work) gate, including German dissidents, outspoken clergymen, Jehovah's Witnesses, gay men, Jewish people and Polish citizens. Today's memorial site combines the historical authenticity of the original environment and its many surviving buildings with the function of a modern exhibition center. It is a place of memory, of pilgrimage and of education.

Meeting point was easy to find. The guide was fantastic! He was very knowledgable and I found his information so valuable to understanding the importance of Dachau. He gave excellent background information and helped to portray the depth of what was happening at the time. I visited Auschwitz a few days after my trip to Dachau and found that so much of the information I learnt on this tour really helped me understand a lot more of the history there also. It is a tour that will genuinely stay with me forever.
