    Sleeping in Dachau

    by CliffClaven Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On one of his trips to Munich, many years ago, old Cliffie found that there was no room at the inn and drove off in search of a hotel in the outskirts. He ended up in Dachau, where his sensitive companion spent a troubled night dwelling on what had happened just outside the town. Old Cliffie has to admit that, as he sat in the bar of the Gasthof that night, idling watching the middle-aged locals sitting around their Stammtisch (regular table), he did wonder if any of them had been aware of what was happening on their doorstep not so many years before.

    One thing that I liked about Munich is there are many day trips that are great! One that I will never forget is my trip to Dachau concentration camp, something that I think everyone should see although it is time consuming to get
    there if you are using public transportation

    A Somber Journey

    A visit to Dachau is highly recommended during any visit to Munich. Sobering and disturbing, but fascinating and compelling. You can actually touch the crematoriums. It's like nothing you'll ever experience.

    even if you have not been directly touched by the tragedy of the hollocaust this memorial and former concentration camp will leave you in awe of the fury that was hitlers regime. You must at least get an audioguide if not a tour in order to fully appreciate this site.

    Dachau is not only the concentration camp. It is rather a beautiful old town west of Munich. Main attraction is the Schloss Dachau (Dachau Palace) and the Marktkirche "Sankt Jacob".

    Visit the former concentration camp which is now a museum and memorial at Dachau. Take the train to Dachau, and then there is regular bus service to the site.
