Unfortunately, there is not enough time to visit, it is best to walk all the way back and see from there to the front. (If you are really interested in it because the interesting properties are in the back of Birkenau. Small tip) Since we didn't have time for the back area, which is a shame. It is definitely worth it!

We went with Dimitri and Lukas and they're very nice. Really here to help us and with very good explanations. The book guide was perfectly clear and in our native language so that we can understand every step of the way what happened. If you go with them, you can go with your eyes closed! Thanks guys!

Easy to book. Tour instructor, Kris, was excellent, very friendly and full of knowledge. He planned the outing very well giving us info on everything we needed to know and where to look for best experience. Did not have to worry about a thing. Vehicle used for travel was very comfortable, clean and safe. the video during travel was also excellent as it helped pass the time and highlighted areas to look at once arrived. Would use again when visit next.
