About 2,5 kilometers north of Dachau, there is a small village called Hebertshausen where SS built a shooting range in the years 1937 and 1938. An administrative building and a small hotel belonging to the shooting range were also built. In 1941 and 1942, about 4,000 Soviet prisoners of war were shot at one of the shooting lanes. The victims were brought forward with handcuffs about 70 at a time and were set up in rows of five before being killed. The reason whu they were murdered here was that the short-range lanes had bullet catchers. The bodies were then taken to the crematorium in Dachau and cremated. The shooting range was one of the largest execution sites of Soviet prisoners of war in the Germany. Beside Soviet prisoners of war being killed, other prisoners were also killed, and not just prisoenrs from Dachau. 

Current status: Preserved with monument (2010).

Address: Freisinger Strasse 124, 85221 Dachau.

Get there: Car.

My comment:

The Gate posts at the entrance to the shooting range are still standing and it’s easy to see where the SS runes were. American troops used the shooting range after the war and in 1964 former prisoners erected a monument at the site. The shooting range was declared as late as 2006 as a burial site.
