Guided Tours for Individual Visitors

Please note: All of the programs offered by the Education Department are for visitors over the age of 13.

These tours are aimed at individual visitors and consist of a guided tour through the grounds of the former camp, the historical buildings, and parts of the permanent exhibition. The goal is to provide a basic knowledge of the history of the Dachau Concentration Camp and the Memorial Site. Of key importance is the question: “What does this history have to do with us today?”

Tour Brochure

The tour brochure provides information for visitors to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. It guides readers through the grounds and exhibitions in twenty stations, with a further six stations devoted to important locations near the Memorial Site. Based on the latest research and written in a clear and succinct style, the brochure follows the history of the Dachau concentration camp up until 1945 and the subsequent uses of the grounds from 1945 through to the present day. Numerous photographs, some of them historical, as well as drawings and accounts by survivors complement the text. Overview layouts enable visitors to locate different relicts of the concentration camp and places of remembrance. Aerial photographs allow connections to be made between the historical grounds of the concentration camp and today’s Memorial Site. Not only an invaluable aid for a structured exploration of the Memorial Site, the brochure is also ideal for planning and reviewing a visit.

The nearly 90-page publication is available for eight euros directly from the publisher at or in the international bookselling trade.
