Visitor and tourist information

Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site
The English-language version of the KZ-Gedenkstätte Web site has visitor information, historical backgrounds, a virtual tour, and more.

City of Dachau: Tourism
There's more to Dachau than the concentration camp, and the city's English-language tourism pages have listings of hotels, restaurants, events, etc. If you'd rather stay in Dachau than in Munich, the Hotel und Tafernwirtschaft Fischer is a convenient choice: It's directly across the street from the Dachau train station and bus stop.


Dachau Concentration Camp
This extensive site is probably the Web's most complete guide to the KZ and its history. It includes many photos, excerpts from original sources, and an especially interesting section on what happened during and immediately after the liberation of Dachau in 1945. The page titled "The story of Dachau, as told to tourists" is also worth reading.

Dachau Concentration Camp (Wikipedia)
This article gives an historical overview, has a list of famous prisoners, and includes academic citations.
