Even today I don't think i'd be able to handle being in a death camp, let alone as a kid. eek.

vix, please do not take your 9 year old there. my 10 cents. don't.

this child:


will stand here, realizing you were pushed into the slot to burn.



afraid of abduction - standing in Dachau and taking in the Holocaust.

I get that you wanna go, make it work somehow, without them.


the older one is 12, right? they should be good for 4 hours by themselves. very close to Dachau I found this one, it's a family leisure pool thing (what the hell is the right term for this.)

https://www.stadtwerke-dachau.de/bae...milienbad.html

the opening hours match with Dachau, you could go here, stay for an hour, talk to the bath security to please keep an eye on them, tell them where to go in case they have to, and pick them up 4 hours later after you have seen Dachau. good plan, bad pan? I can't tell, but that's what I would try.

here is another option (it's all German, sorry, but it should work with the translation plugin) - destinations in Dachau for family holidays for kids.
http://www.tourismus-dachauer-land.d...gendliche.html
all with supervised groups, from an afternoon on a farm to (smallscale) adventure playgrounds.

also an option - I assume Munich is your starting point for Dachau? Munich has some of the greatest tech museums in Germany. with special stuff for kids (where you get to jump around in jets, build shit, whatever.) if you find the matching day, they can have a blast in one of these tech activities for kids in one of the tech museums in Munich, that's 4-6 hours. you go to Dachau, pick them up. That they don't speak German I think wouldn't matter at all, not while crawling through jets, and the museum staff speaks English anyway.

and then there is Bavaria Filmpark (from the formerly biggest film studio) - with guides, for kids, what have you.

(sorry, I obviously miss work and figuring out schedules.... my choice of the day, your Dachau trip!)
This is so helpful, thank you. We are actually driving in from Karlsruhe that day, from visiting my cousin and her (German) husband. I have a feeling he would have told me the same things as you, about Dachau.

We stay two nights in Munich, so have one full day. I was thinking we would leave the car parked and do the Deutsches Museum and Marienplatz and Englische Garten.

I'll have a look at all of your suggestions, hopefully we can make something work. But I won't take the kids if I go.

It's hard balancing the whole "don't wrap them in cotton wool" thing with the "don't give them anything they're not ready for" thing. Every new situation with parenting, you have to weigh all of this up, and not much is ever clear cut.

I really have no idea what to expect at a death camp. If travel has taught me anything it's that my expectations are usually wrong, so there's no point making plans, based on them.

And I really am stressed out about these music exams on Monday because I've never accompanied for exams before, let alone for my own children, who I'll be nervous for. Recipe for disaster. Guess where their teacher is from?

Dusseldorf lol. I didn't even think to ask him about Dachau... idiot vixnix.

true, I just know that you couldn't pay me to set foot into the Dachau or Auschwitz museum ever again, but people react very differently. In some museum sites my imagination stays pretty silent, I waltzed through torture chambers in old castles and it was just that, a museum site. If I could take in Dachau like that, I would, but I can't, other people most def. can. Can a 9 year old? I would not want to find out, tbh.
