    Rent a Caravan

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During our 12 day excursion around Europe, we decided that our best bet was to take a car. Rather than figure out the train system, and to maximize our sightseeing, we felt the van would be the best bang for our buck.

    It was truly awesome, because we did not have to plan at all, picked up and took off. Even when we could not find a place to stay, we were able to spread out and all go to sleep in it, since we got the 15 passenger van for only two people!

    Access to Dachau Camp

    by nicolaitan Written Nov 10, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For independent travel from Munich, the train to Dachau leaves from the main train station and takes well less than half an hour. Exit the train station and the bus stop is right in front. Take 724 which goes directly to the entrance (end of the line). Audio guides are located in white containers along the walkway on the left side.

    Guided tours leave from the train station as well. One large company has an office behind the track numbers in the lower thirties. Buy your ticket, meet your guiide. Most tours here will take the same train and bus as the independent traveller. The guide has only the advantage of giving discussion and answering questions along the way ( ours gave wrong answers on two questions ).

    Other than one set of toilets in the museum there are no facilities of any kind at Dachau. A McDonald's is on the second level of the train station and there are one or two small eateries along the bus route.
    The rough gravel surfaces and long distances for walking at Dachau require sturdy comfortable shoes.

    How to reach the Dachau concentration camp

    by d_d Updated May 3, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I reached Dachau by S-bahn from Munich (S2 line direction Peter-Hausen).
    Then at Dachau S-bahn station, you have to take a bus to the concentration camp (ticket on bus 1 Eur).
    The travel from Marienplatz in Munich to Dachau concentration camp takes about 40 minutes.

    With the S-Bahn

    by Mikebond Updated Oct 5, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is very easy to get to the KZ-Gedenkstätte Dachau with public transport.
    The line S2 of the excellent suburban train network (S-Bahn) of München, direction Petershausen or Dachau, takes you from the München Hauptbahnhof (Central Station) to Dachau. There are trains every 20 minutes.
    From Dachau rail station there are two buses that drive you to the KZ every 20 minutes. One of them (726, I think) stops right at the entrance of the camp. However, you may have to wait because there are so many students that the bus gets full in a couple of seconds.
    The good thing is that, if you go to Dachau with the S-Bahn, the bus to the KZ is free!

    how to go there

    by mindcrime Written Jan 21, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dachau is located 20km NW of Munich.

    We took S2 train from Munich in the direction of Dachau/Petershausen and got off at Dachau station.
    The train ride was about 25 minutes from Munich’s Central Station (Hauptbahnhof).
    We got a 3day ticket that included Dachau, if you need a single ticket buy the single day ticket (11euro) that also includes metro in Munich, the train ride to Dachau and the bus to the memorial site.

    From Dachau station (which is located at the south of town) you have to take bus 724 or bus 726 that stop near the entrance of the memorial site ("KZ-Gedenkstätte").
    Alternative you can walk from the station, there’s a detailed map outside the station to see the route but it was winter (snow everywhere and temperature down to 0’C) and didn’t even think about it…

    It takes approximately 20 minutes to reach Dachau from Munich on the S-Bahn route to Dachau/Petershausen.
    Once at Dachau station, the bus number 726 takes approx. 10 minutes to reach the camp entrance. The bus stop is 'KZ-Gedenkstaette'.

    The best way to get there is to take the S-Bahn (S2) to Dachau station, and then follow the signs. Busses run regularly (724/ 726) between the station and the campsite.
    Its a 10 min walk from there on to the main entrance.

    From Munich to Dachau

    Dachau is a 45 minute trip from downtwon Munich: Take S-2 (direction: Petershausen) to Dachau-Ost, to KZ-Gedenkstatte (the camp). The two-zone 9euros ticket covers the entire trip both ways; with a railpass, just pay for the bus 1 euro each way.
    Drivers follow Dachauerstrasse from downtown Munich to Dachau-Ost. Then follow the KZ-Gedenstatte signs.

    It is no problem to get to Dachau by S-Bahn (suburban train) - they opperate between Munich and Dachau quite often. It is also possible to get there by car - Autobahns 8, 92 and 99 pass Dachau.

    Parking in town is no problem - huge parking lots for free are around the centre and several parking spaces are in the centre

    Atention - steep downgrade slope to Munich

    We took the train from Munich to the town and then took a bus to the town and camp.

    The one day pass that we purchased for the metro and bus in Munich were good here as well. Remember to get the all zone Metro pass.
