Dachau, Germany

We flew into Munich, via London, from the USA and spent the first night of our trip in Dachau. Dachau is close enough to the airport to be convenient after a long travel day but still feels like “village Germany.” The hotel and our stay were pleasant and relaxing after a hectic travel day.

The altstadt was very pleasant and picturesque with a good variety of restaurants.

We toured the Dachau Camp Memorial the next morning before heading to Salzburg. This memorial should be a must-see for anyone visiting the area. It’s very sobering yet it’s very well presented. I highly recommend a 2-3 hour stop.

If visiting Munich and looking for quieter surroundings, I think Dachau is a really good alternative as it has pretty good S-bahn connections into the city.

Yes we toured Dachau as well. It is an excellent way to honor the history in your of others life/death while experiencing the quiet horrors of the time many spent in that camp.
