Dachau District Map
Towns & Villages in the Dachau District
Today, you will see little of that era, but what does remain is a fierce self-confidence and spirit of independence that permeates the lives of citizens in towns like Karlsfeld, Odelzhausen and Sulzemoos. This district is a source of Munich labor and a wonderful recreational area for swimming, cycling, hiking, climbing and escaping the rigors of big city life.
Visit the town of Weichs to see picturesque Bavarian countryside, white-washed homes with red roofs amid rolling hills and grain fields near the Glonn River. Stop in Erdweg for a glimpse of evolving local life at the Hutter Local History Museum. The Dachau District takes pride in welcoming entrepreneurs, homesteaders, and visiting guests alike.
When you come to the capital town of Dachau, look for the famous medieval castle, Dachau Palace, where Bavarian dukes resided in the 16th century. It once comprised four huge wings, though today only one remains.
Then, not far from the town, you can see the memorial site of Dachau Concentration Camp, built upon the grounds of a 1933 munitions factory. It was the first camp to hold political prisoners leading up to World War Two. Now, reconstructed barracks stand as a sad testament to the horrors of war. The words of the memorial will echo in your ears, “Never again.”
Finally, pro golfers will want to check out Markt Indersdorf and its Golfpark Gut Häusern which is rated Germany’s fourth best golf course.
