Full description

This 3.5-hour educational tour about how this concentration camp claimed over 1 million victims is a must-see. The complex comprises 3 main camps: Auschwitz I was the administrative center; Auschwitz II, or Birkenau, was the extermination site; and Auschwitz III, or Monowitz, was a labor camp. Built in 1940, Auschwitz-Birkenau was the largest concentration camp operated by the Nazis. Before the liberation of Auschwitz on January 27, 1945, the SS attempted to destroy the camp and burn the archives. The Polish government restored Auschwitz–Birkenau as a moving memorial to the victims. Upon entering through the main entrance, see original camp buildings in the main part of the complex. Visit the museum with its permanent exhibition, an opportunity to learn about the real stories of prisoners and see their personal belongings. Finally, visit the extermination camp at Birkenau, where gas chambers and crematories are located. The duration of your visit to Auschwitz I lasts two hours and the visit to Auschwitz II lasts one hour. There are three breaks during the tour: the first is 10-20 minutes after arriving from Krakow; the second is 10-15 minutes before going to Auschwitz II, Birkenau Camp; and the third is 10 to 20-minute before heading back to Krakow.

    Initially ordered tickets for the wrong date. At 10:00 PM I still had contact with customer service. Fortunately, my tickets could still be moved to the next day. A van was ready at the agreed place and time. After this we had a super impressive tour with a very nice guide, who could clearly tell everything and took her own experiences into this. Really great service and highly recommended!

    Very well organised tour: easy booking, clear instructions and information, professional and friendly driver, comfortable transportation, good quality guided tour. We took the lunch option which was good value. Some sections of the guided tour felt a bit rushed; 20-30 mins of free time to without the guide would have been an improvement.

    Firstly driver and guide both of them were perfect people. Their timing was totally okay. It was snowy day and it made my experience so much better. Driver’s English was good and clearly. About guide her knowledge and type of telling the stories was amazing. You can choose SeeKrakow without any suspicious. Thank you for everything.
