Dachau Concentration Camp is only 32 kilometres away from Munich and makes for an easy day trip. It is easily accessible by car and public transport.
Visiting a Nazi Concentration Camp is not for the faint-hearted. Time stands still here. The sight of prisoners' toilets, sinks, and beds is eerie and reinforces the horror of one of the most appalling crimes of the twentieth century. Make sure you watch the short documentary which is played on loop, in various languages, in the exhibition area. It will send chills down your spine.
This might be a grim day-trip trip, but it is an essential one. This horrific reminder of violence perpetrated in the name of conformity instigates us to celebrate difference.
