Guided Tours

Explore the Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp memorial accompanied by our trained staff

This weekend (20–21 April 2024), there will be no guided tours. The museum is open from 10am to 6pm. We kindly ask for your understanding.

A small group stands around a model of the camp. A guide points to a spot and explains something.

Touring the Grounds

We offer guided tours of the former camp grounds. Participation costs 7€ (adults) or 3€ (reduced). These guided tours for individual visitors and small groups start at the camp model in front of the museum building.

Since there is a limited number of spots available for each guided tour, we kindly ask visitors to register in advance, either by email at information@dora.de or by phone at 03631/495820.

Tuesday – Sunday: daily at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm.

The memorial is closed on Mondays.

Touring the Tunnels

The underground tunnel system can only be visited as part of a guided tour. 

Since the temperatures in the tunnel system stay at approximately 8°C all year round, visitors should wear appropriately warm clothing, also in summer.
