Depart Krakow and travel to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, to explore the horrific concentration camps used by the Nazis during World War II.

Discover monuments to the tragedy, including original buildings, still standing as a sober reminder of the terrible events. Learn more about the history of the camps from an official museum guide. Visit both the Auschwitz and Birkenau camps, located just three kilometers apart, and then get some free time to have your own packed lunch.
