is an organized tour from munich necessary or is it sufficient to take the train to dachau/ How far is the camp from the train station? thank you very much
It will take you approximately 25- 40 minutes from the main Munich Hbf (central) station to the Dachau memorial site. For me, an older American I did not think a tour was worth it because of the information available at the site. Please be aware that the memorial is closed on Mondays.
Trains are very frequent and leave at least once or more an hour,
Oh and once you arrive in Dachau you can take one of two buses to the memorial site. The 724 bus goes directly to the memorial site or you can get on the 726 towards Saubachsiedlung to the KZ-Gedenkstaette where you get off and just a short walk to the memorial site
