It is a somber experience, but a visit to the former concentration camp in Dachau offers a glimpse into one of the darkest chapters in the human experience. Dachau was one of the first concentration camps, opened just weeks after Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, and it served as a model for what was to come. Inmates included regime opponents, Jews, homosexuals and Gypsies. Dachau was not an extermination camp, which did not make it immune to executions by camp guards. Disease and starvation were the biggest killers. A museum at the entrance orients visitors to the site which includes the original entrance, guard towers, crematorium and reconstructed barracks.

Take the S-Bahn (S2) from Munich to Dachau, the ride takes about 20 minutes. 1 hour from the airport, take the S1 to Laim then switch to S2 direction Peterhausen. Check the public transport website:
