Full description

Step into history with a visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau memorial. Learn about the tragic history of the largest Holocaust memorial from your guide.

Be picked up from the comfort of your accommodation in Krakow and board a comfortable bus for the 1.5-hour trip to the Auschwitz-Birkenau complex, a historic site that serves as an important Holocaust memorial. 

Explore the museum in the outskirts of Oświęcim, approximately 60 kilometers west of Krakow. Upon arrival, meet a local guide who will show you around the site and tell you about its inhuman history.

Find out how Auschwitz-Birkenau has become both a symbol of human suffering and a witness to physical and emotional exhaustion during a respectful tour with a licensed guide.

Walk through the gate marked "Arbeit Macht Frei" (work frees) to enter Auschwitz 1, where your guide will show you around the preserved area and introduce the history of the place.

Spend approximately an hour in Birkenau, where the mass killings as part of the Nazi "Final Solution to the Jewish Question" took place. After the visit, you can reflect on the experience during the ride back to Krakow.

The experience here is over whelming but definitely something that everyone should experience. The day started pretty badly as our time was changed then the coach was late. The masses of people at the entrance and not being kept up to date with what was happening. However, this was all worth it as soon as we entered our tour guide was amazing and the information that she provided was incredible

A must do experience, excellent tour operators and very professional and organised. Our tour guide to both Auschwitz and Birkenau was very knowledgeable and professional 👏 and was plenty of time to take photographs and ask questions. Highly recommended

perfect well organised tour thoroughly enjoyed and definitely recommend,however wouldve liked a longer break to use the facilities ie cafe but as it was a large group I can understand this maybe being not possible,also meet up point changed day before but again due to group size.
