Dachau Herb Garden Herb Garden of the Concentration Camp

The herb garden was part of the Dachau concentration camp, as an experimental facility for the use of active plant substances and organic-dynamic agriculture. Concentration camp prisoners worked here as labour slaves. The site was used to supply the Eastern Front with vitamin C and active plant substances and was thus a building block for the planned war of aggression. After the war began, the Dachau herb garden was also part of the planning of the SS settlement policy.

From May 1938 onwards, concentration camp prisoners had to drain the moor east of the Alte Römerstraße and the Würm and build a large herb garden complex, including the associated farm and administration buildings. The area was as large as the entire Dachau East district is today.
