Full description
Travel about an hour and a half in an air-conditioned bus departing Krakow for a visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp complex, a historic site that leaves an unforgettable experience for all visitors and is an important Holocaust memorial. Explore the museum in the outskirts of Oświęcim, approximately 60 kilometers west of Krakow. Upon arrival, meet a professional local educator who will show you around the site and tell you about its inhuman history. You will be provided with a meal box to take a break during the tour. Learn the tragic history of the largest Holocaust concentration camp, founded by the Nazis in 1940, Auschwitz-Birkenau has become both a symbol of human suffering and a witness to physical and emotional exhaustion. You will learn how it became the final resting place of millions of people, mostly Jews, sentenced to death in hideous gas chambers. 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. In the second part, you will 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, our staff will take you back to Krakow.

Next time I would choose to leave from the pick-up point. We had already been on the bus for an hour before we even left the city. Auschwitz was very impressive, but I missed the time to look around and really let it sink in. The tours are so tightly organized and with such large groups at the same time that you have to make an effort to take in the things.

Bra tour! Kunde dock inte bli hämtad och lämnad vid mitt hotel, men det var inget stort problem för mig. I övrigt en trevlig person som anordnade turen och själva guiden i Auschwitz-lägren var också bra.
