If you have already visited some other concentration camp this may not give you anything new, but worth a visit anyway. Entrance free, you only have to pay for the parking.

If you are close to Dachau (e.g., in Munich), I would highly recommend spending half a day visiting this Concentration Camp. It is a sobering experience, but it is important to remember this history to ensure that it does not repeat itself ever again. The site is easily accessible through a free public bus, and the signage at the Camp is clear. We learned a lot when we visited.

The property is vast and you can imagine the volume of persecuted souls that spent their last ounces of life within the fences. Almost everything is accessible to view and very informative panels on the walls explain more to visitors. It is a very quiet place.

Our guide was very knowledgeable, and the timing was perfect. This is a must while in Germany, especially if we hope not to experience an authoritarian, isolationist regime ever in our lifetime. Definitely not for children as many images were graphic and disturbing. Our 10:40 departure time had us back to take advantage of the hop on hop off bus tour of Munich!

I visited Dachau on a lovely spring day and even though I was prepared for it--WWII is a particular area of history I am fascinated by--it was still quite disturbing to see the bunkers and cells and the very detailed displays. Like Auschwitz it has an unsettling serenity about it; unlike Auschwitz the krematoria are intact and being able to go inside the chambers was utterly surreal and quite upsetting for me. But, also very necessary in order to fully process what happened there. I spent a good 3 hours exploring the entire camp, including lunch at the cafeteria. It was an easy trip from Munich via S-bahn and a short bus ride once I reached the town of Dachau station.
