Traveling from Munich, the easiest way to reach the memorial is by
public transportation. Take the S2 train from Munich in the direction of
Dachau/Petershausen until you reach the Dachau station. The train ride
takes approximately 25 minutes from Munich’s Central Station (Hauptbahnhof).
Once you have arrived at the Dachau train station, take bus 726 towards "Saubachsiedlung" to the entrance of the memorial site ("KZ-Gedenkstätte").
Due to renovation work and a road closure the bus 726 stops to the end of August at the stop "Robert-Bosch-Straße" at the Alte Römerstraße. The memorial site and the visitor center can be easily reached by a footpath through the parking lot.
For help planning your route via public transportation, visit the MVV (Munich Transport and Tariff Association) website’s useful itinerary planner.
For using the S-Bahn from Munich it is advisable to purchase a single (or partner) day ticket „Munich XXL (München XXL)“. It covers the S-Bahn from Munich Central Station to Dachau and the bus in Dachau to the memorial site. Automated machines are available for purchasing tickets. For more details please check the MVV München Homepage.
