Full description
Starting time of the tour is between 8:30 - 9:00 AM and the whole tour takes around 7 – 8 hours. On the way to the Museum, you’ll watch a 45-minute documentary film titled “The liberation of Auschwitz”, that is an introduction to what you’re going to see in the museum. Firstly, stop at “Altejudenrampe” - a historical wagon from which victims were lead to a gas chamber in Birkenau. Then, visit “Fountain of Tears” -  an artistic expression of the connection between Holocaust and the crucifixion of Jesus.

Upon arrival at Birkenau, you’ll get a guide book, which will serve you as a local guide. You’ll have 2.5 hours time for the visit. Take your time and contemplate all the terrifying events that happened in Birkenau. On the way back, pass through Auschwitz III-Monowitz. A subcamp of Auschwitz, where prisoners were forced to do extremely hard work at a synthetic rubber fabric.

Very friendly guide, great tour

Booked the tour in English as there were no Germans at the time. The guide spoke very easy-to-understand English, was very keen and even had the film and the tour to the "fountain of tears" in German. In Auschwitz there was also enough time to look at everything in peace with a great and understandable brochure including map. It is highly recommended in any case!

Very friendly and attentive guide, super pleasant bus Free WIFI

A moving, trying but so essential visit. My only regret: not having been able to do Auschwitz I. It was not planned in the program and my knowledge did not allow me to realize how important it would have been. That said: it was already very hard to live. I knew what I wanted to see and collect in this place. It changes you. Please note the signs in the camp are at best in English, the small booklet in French is essential.
