Dachau Things to Do: 105 reviews and 211 photos


Try not to visit when school groups are attending. I say this, but it is impossible to determine when they might be there. We were surprised to find that schools were still in progress at the end of July.

If you see a large number of tour buses parked in the lot, be prepared, and avoid as best you can. I was disappointed to find the lack of respect given by the kids, especially the teens. This is not a typical site as such, a tourist destination of course, but it has questionable entertainment value.

Visiting Dachau was much like an extended vist to your local cemetary, however much more moving for the average adult.
