Full description
Learn about the history and gain a deeper understanding of the Holocaust and the Nazi concentration camps on a full-day tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau from Krakow. An English-speaking driver will pick you up from a pre-arranged meeting point in Krakow (please note that pickup is only at the meeting point) and transfer you in a comfortable vehicle. Upon arrival at the Auschwitz Museum, a local guide will be provided in one of the five available languages or a booklet in over 12 languages, depending on the option booked.

Visit both Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau to acquire a proper sense of the place that has become the symbol of the Holocaust as well as Nazi crimes against Poles, Romas, and other groups. Become more educated about the UNESCO World Heritage Site as you visit the remaining prison blocks, gas chambers, and crematoria buildings. See the remains of the railway ramp in Birkenau, where the prisoners would be transported.
