I visited the Sachsenhausen (Saxon House) concentration camp last year, when I was in Berlin. I am likely to be in Munich next year. Is there much to be gained from visiting Dachau as well? Or are the exhibits at both sites similar?
Depends on why you would want to go there. The sites are both historical sites and memorials. I would say that for getting information, a good book is better than a guided tour through the ruins of a camp. The actual site has more emotional impact, but going to two sites doesn't have twice the emotional impact.
- There might be specific exhibitions or guided tours. For instance, Dachau has one on Dutch prisoners right now.
- I guess you wouldn't ask that way if you had a family connection to one of the sites.
