What to Expect
All over the world, Auschwitz has become a symbol of terror, genocide and the Holocaust. This was the largest of the German Nazi concentration and extermination camps. The Auschwitz – Birkenau Memorial Museum (founded in 1947) was included on the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites.

The first transport of Polish political prisoner deportees arrived in Auschwitz on June 14, 1940. This day is regarded as the date the camp started to function. Afterwards, Soviet Prisoners of War, Gypsies and prisoners of many other nationalities from all over the German-occupied Europe were transported here to suffer and die in hellish conditions. In 1942, notably after the construction of the nearby Auschwitz II-Birkenau concentration camp, destruction of the European Jews started to come. Most of them were immediately put to death in the gas chambers of Birkenau. Those who spared immediate death by being selected for labor were systematically stripped of their individual identities. Most prisoners survived at Auschwitz only a few weeks or months. A visit to Auschwitz will let you learn more about this tragic time in the world’s history.

This is a regular everyday tour in English with transportation by minibus and a guided tour at Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. You will be picked up directly from your hotel and take you to Auschwitz. Your English-speaking tour guide assistant will take care of you on the bus and at the Memorial providing all necessary information and arrangements until you start your tour with a local Museum guide. You will also see a documentary film about Auschwitz on the way.

You visit Auschwitz and Birkenau in a group with a local English speaking guide. At Auschwitz I everyone gets the headphones so you can hear the guide properly. After about two hours guided tour at Auschwitz I and a short break you will be taken to Auschwitz II-Birkenau where you will continue your guided visit for about one hour. You will be back to Krakow around 3.30 pm and you will be dropped off at your hotel or at any point within the center of Krakow – following your wish.
