Furnished Apartments in Dachau


Dachau

Dachau is located approx. 31 km northwest of Munich (city center) and offers apartments for rent close to the city.

The Celts settled in the area of this major district town as early as 500 BC. 805 AD "Dahaua" was given to the Bishop of Freising and after 1182 the House of Wittelsbach became the new owner. The Dachau Palace, which only partially withstood Napoleonic occupation, was built under their rule. During the 19th century the town flourished as a painters' colony (Carl Spitzweg, Max Liebermann, Fritz von Uhde, and many more), as the surrounding landscape provided magnificent subject matter. A gunpowder factory built during World War I would be used for much more gruesome purposes: Germany's first concentration camp, where over 32,000 people found their death and which led to the town's infamy.

By now, Dachau has over 36,000 inhabitants. Good infrastructure, the wide range of leisure facilities, and its small town charme, in combination with its proximity to Munich and the airport, make Dachau an attractive area. There is a mix of residential buildings and larger industrial areas.
