Dachau Memorial & Munich
This tour will begin with a visit of the Dachau Memorial, which was set up in March 1933 as a concentration camp for political prisoners. This camp served as a model for all later concentration camps. In its 12 years existence over 200.000 persons from all over Europe were imprisoned here.
41.500 were murdered. In April 1945 American troops liberated the survivor.
The Memorial Site on the grounds of the former concentration camp was established in 1965 on the initiative of and in accordance with the plans of the surviving prisoners who had joined together to form the Comité International de Dachau. The Bavarian state government provided financial support.
Afterwards we will continue our tour to the heart of beer, the splendid capital of Bavaria – Munich.
