Driving through the village of Dachau, you will reach the site of the former concentration camp. Built in 1933, Dachau was the first Nazi concentration camp and it is believed to have "processed" over 200,000 prisoners of World War II.
The main hall houses photographs and models of the camps, and gives you an insight into the horrendous acts against humanity that were often performed at the camp. In the grounds surrounding the main hall, you will find the crematorium, reconstructed bunkers and a disguised gas chamber.
