Visit Dachau – No 9 of Top Ten Things to See and Do – The Best of Munich

After taking a look at Schloss Nymphenburg number #10 on the Best of Munich series, the countdown continues!

#9. Visit Dachau:

I’m always hesitant to recommend a visit to Dachau as a stop on any tourist trip to Munich, but the truth is, the remnants of Germany’s first concentration camp are important to see.

For many, including a large percentage of North Americans, it is the only way to fully grasp the atrocities that took place during a very dark period in German history.

The reason I hesitate in recommending this as a “must-see” for tourists is my empathy for the German people who have come so far in putting the horrors of World War Two behind them.

That in mind, a trip to Dachau can be a sobering experience well worth the visit.  Read more about Dachau on my newest blog featured on Travel Dudes!
