Meet your guide in central Frankfurt and then make the 4-hour journey by coach to Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site: the first Nazi concentration camp in Germany during the Holocaust.
See photographs, documents, reconstructed cell blocks, the crematorium and administration headquarters on a tour of both the camp and museum. Find out little-known facts and stories about the well-known Nazis linked to this site, like Heinrich Himmler, the guard who started the camp.
After touring the site, return to your coach for a quick trip to Munich. On arrival, take some free time to buy lunch before rejoining the guide for a comprehensive city tour.
The city tour features a stop at the landmark Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady, a church that serves as the cathedral of the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising and the seat of its Archbishop. It is widely considered a symbol of Munich. Learn about its history and climb the stairs of the south tower for a breathtaking view of Munich and the nearby Alps.
Head to Munich’s famous watering hole, Hofbräuhaus — a 3-floor beer hall dating back to the 16th century, and visit Marienplatz, the city’s main square since 1158. You'll also step inside the Old Town Hall, one of the city's most beautiful Gothic buildings, on the east side of the square.
Some of the other highlights include the Deutsches Museum, the world's largest museum of science and technology; the elegant Munich National Theatre, home of the Bavarian State Opera and the Bayerisches Staatsballett; and more. Your full-day adventure concludes with a return trip to Frankfurt.
