Full description
During this 3-hour tour you will explore the real-life neighborhoods, streets, and homes that made up the Warsaw Ghetto, the largest of all the Jewish ghettos in German-occupied Europe during World War II. Learn from a professional guide who will weave together the harrowing stories of everyday life in the ghetto while you explore fragments of the ghetto walls, the last street of the ghetto, and the still-functioning synagogue that survived the Second World War. Learn about the history of this haunting place where German authorities imprisoned Jews, located in the Muranów neighborhood of the Polish capital, between October and November 1940. Over 400,000 Jews from Warsaw and the surrounding area were located in this area of four square kilometers. 100,000 people died here from exhaustion, hunger, disease and more than 300,000 were killed in the nearby Treblinka extermination camp. Discover the ghetto's history, including the 1943 uprising, and its lasting legacy.

Very knowledgeable guide. We traveled around the city mainly on foot and by tram to explore the most important points and monuments of the Jewish ghetto. The city of Warsaw has been completely rebuilt so there is no real street / neighborhood to see the remains of the ghetto. Still interesting visit

Our tour guide Ewa was absolutely fantastic! On time, well prepared - this was how we were able to use the three hours effectively. Ewa explained and showed us everything in great detail, told the story vividly. Would recommend this tour (and our guide) again and again. It was absolutely worth it.

We had our private tour of the Warsaw Ghetto with Marcin. He was a super good guide who spoke very good German. we could understand him very well and he was able to answer all of our questions. We had a lot of fun with him and it was an all-round successful day! Thank you very much Marcin!
