My journey to Dachau began at the Hauptbahnhof (main train station) in Munich, where I took the S-Bahn, in the direction towards Peterhausen, to the small town of Dachau, a 20 minute train ride. From there, one can take one of the taxis waiting outside the train station, or wait for Bus # 726 to the Memorial Site at the former camp. I waited 17 minutes for the bus which took me to within a block or two of the camp. Taxis take customers right to the entrance to the Memorial Site and at closing time, there are taxis waiting for the return trip. On the bus route, we drove along Sudentenland Strasse. To properly tour the Museum and grounds requires an entire day. The English version of a film called KZ Dachau is shown twice a day at 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. (KZ is the abbreviation for the word Concentration Camp in German.)
