Overview
Visit the former Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau on this 8-hour tour from Krakow. In the company of a guide, you'll explore both Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau, and learn about the history of the UNESCO-listed memorial site and those once imprisoned within its walls.
What to Expect
Start your Tour at the prearranged meeting point in Krakow, and then travel by air-conditioned minibus or coach to Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi Germany concentration camp. Located in former German-occupied southern Poland, the complex consisted of three main camps — Auschwitz I, the administrative center; Auschwitz II-Birkenau, an extermination camp; and Auschwitz III-Monowitz, a work camp — though much of the site was destroyed by the SS at the end of World War II.

During the tour you'll have a chance to visit the permanent exhibition and original buildings on the grounds of the main camp, Auschwitz I, and see the most important original objects at Auschwitz II-Birkenau. You will spend around two hours in the first part of the camp, and an hour in the second part. After your arrival back in Krakow you will be dropped off at the original departure point.

Please note: There is no lunch break during the tour so please plan accordingly.
