Other sights and towns to see near Dachau


I am sure the question has been asked but im planning 3 cities in less than 2 weeks so i unfortunately dont have time to dig through old posts :/ my apologies.

I am visiting Dachau Concentration camp during the 2nd week of august and wanted to know if there are other great sights nearby. my interests are not limited and i'd love to see a town, a beautiful lake, a palace.

I sincerely appreciate the help!

Well, obviously, Munich is nearby ;-)

And Dachau also has a castle. Other than that, I find it - sorry - pretty boring.

If you're interested in seeing something else besides Munich and Dachau, you could check out Pfaffenhofen an der Ilm. It will take you 24 minutes by train, and cost EUR 8.10 (single trip). I'm mentioning it because the Chinese elected Pfaffenhofen/Ilm as the most liveable small town in Germany. Well - it's not THAT nice, but it is a nice town.

Dachau itself is a nice Bavarian town.


Not far from Dachau there are the Schleißheim Palaces (10 km)


and right next to them the Flugwerft Schleißheim, the aviation branch of the Deutsches Museum


Than there is of course Munich.

And directly south of Munich you have the 5 Lake Region

You could go Nyphenburg Palace on the way to Munich from Dachau. That is an outstanding sight and the "outbuildings" i.e., the hunting lodge , the folly and the poolhouse are even more interesting than the Palace. The grounds are vast and lovely. There is a great place for lunch at the old greenhouses. You can eat inside or out on the terrace. Go under the arches of the palace, follow the gravel allee and just about where the fountain is, it is on the right. It is marked. This is a must see for those interested in Wittelsbach history, love to see a fine palace or spend time enjoying beautiful spaces.
