Public Transportation

Traveling from Munich, the easiest way to reach the memorial is by public transportation. Take the S2 train from Munich in the direction of Dachau/Petershausen until you reach the Dachau station. The train ride takes approximately 25 minutes from Munich’s Central Station (Hauptbahnhof).
Once you have arrived at the Dachau train station, take bus 726 towards "Saubachsiedlung" to the entrance of the memorial site ("KZ-Gedenkstätte").

For help planning your route via public transportation, visit the MVV (Munich Transport and Tariff Association) website’s useful itinerary planner.

For using the S-Bahn from Munich it is advisable to purchase a single (or partner) day ticket „Munich XXL (München XXL)“. It covers the S-Bahn from Munich Central Station to Dachau and the bus in Dachau to the memorial site. Automated machines are available for purchasing tickets.
