A group of us spent about 6 hours visiting Terezin with a guide from Whittmann Tours. Our tour guide, Helen, was very informative and provided a great tour of the actual camp and the nearby ghetto. Terezin is about a 45 minute drive from Prague....More
Visiting World War II’s Terezin camp from Prague by yourself risks only a fragmented understanding of the complex and what occurred here. Gain a comprehensive picture of the 1941–1945 camp, used by Nazi forces as a Jewish prisoners’ transit hub and ghetto, on this guided tour. Explore the entire complex, including the museum, dormitories, and cemetery with full commentary throughout, and with entrance fees and return transport included.
Board a comfortable, air-conditioned coach in central Prague with your guide and travel to Terezin, an 18th-century military fortress used as a transit camp and Jewish ghetto by Nazi forces after their invasion of the Czech Republic in WWII.
On arrival, take a narrated tour of the complex as your guide charts the terrible events that occurred here. Learn how many thousands died at the camp, and how many were transported on to death camps such as Auschwitz and Treblinka.
Visit must-sees including the Small Fortress, Ghetto Museum, Magdeburg Barracks, Columbarium, Crematorium, and dormitories; the latter with original furniture. Learn about the prisoners’ suffering through documentary films, discovering how they maintained a semblance of cultural life despite everything.
Then, pay homage to the camp victims at the Terezin Memorial, home to approximately 10,000 graves. Finally, return to Prague where your tour ends at the original starting point.
