Camp Crematorium

Dachau was the first Nazi concentration camp (1933). Today, it’s an easily accessible camp for travelers and an effective voice from our recent but horrific past, pleading, “Never again.”

A visit to Dachau is a powerful and valuable experience and, when approached thoughtfully, well worth the effort it takes to get here. Many visitors come away from Dachau with more respect for history and the dangers of mixing fear, the promise of jobs, blind patriotism, and an evil government. You’ll likely see lots of students here, as all Bavarian schoolchildren are required to visit a concentration camp.


Cost and Hours: Free, daily 9:00-17:00. Some areas of the camp may begin to close before 17:00—plan your visit to wrap up by 16:40 to allow time to walk back to the entrance. The museum discourages parents from bringing children under age 14.

About the Author

Since 1973, Rick Steves has spent about four months a year exploring Europe. His mission: to empower Americans to have European trips that are fun, affordable, and culturally broadening. Rick produces a best-selling guidebook series, a public television series, and a public radio show, and organizes small-group tours that take over 30,000 travelers to Europe annually.  He does all of this with the help of more than 100 well-traveled staff members at Rick Steves’ Europe in Edmonds, WA (near Seattle). When not on the road, Rick is active in his church and with advocacy groups focused on economic and social justice, drug policy reform, and ending hunger. To recharge, Rick plays piano, relaxes at his family cabin in the Cascade Mountains, and spends time with his son Andy and daughter Jackie.
