Dachau is a city in southern Germany, in the federal state of Bavaria. Just 20 km away from Munich, it has become a popular housing area for people working in Munich, and now has roughly 40,000 inhabitants. The town has a historic city center, with a castle built in the 18th century.
Unfortunately, Dachau is best known for the proximity of the relatively well-preserved site of the infamous Dachau concentration camp, the first large-scale concentration camp in Germany, built by the Nazi regime in 1933.
