Full description

Step into history with a visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau memorial. Learn about the tragic history of the largest Holocaust memorial from your guide.

Be picked up from the comfort of your accommodation in Krakow and board a comfortable bus for the 1.5-hour trip to the Auschwitz-Birkenau complex, a historic site that serves as an important Holocaust memorial. 

Explore the museum in the outskirts of Oświęcim, approximately 60 kilometers west of Krakow. Upon arrival, meet a local guide who will show you around the site and tell you about its inhuman history.

Find out how Auschwitz-Birkenau has become both a symbol of human suffering and a witness to physical and emotional exhaustion during a respectful tour with a licensed guide.

Walk through the gate marked "Arbeit Macht Frei" (work frees) to enter Auschwitz 1, where your guide will show you around the preserved area and introduce the history of the place.

Spend approximately an hour in Birkenau, where the mass killings as part of the Nazi "Final Solution to the Jewish Question" took place. After the visit, you can reflect on the experience during the ride back to Krakow.

Very well organised tour incl. Transport and guide (good Organisation is necessary since there are many people/groups visiting). Our tour guide gave all relavant information about the concentration camp and answered all questions immediately and also pointing out the relevance today including everyone's own responsibility. I highly recommend this tour (despite the crowds of people) to everyone!

Highly recommend this trip for anyone visiting Krakow. We were picked up at our hotel which was in Old Town in a minivan and transported to the coach. Our tour guide Conrad was brilliant, the pace walking along the camps was spot on. I couldn’t have asked for anything more
