Itinerary
This Auschwitz tour starts with pickup from your hotel in the Old Town or the Jewish Quarter of Krakow. Hop aboard your air-conditioned vehicle, and get ready for the ride over to the memorial and museum. The ride takes you about an hour.

Once you arrive at Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, you'll spend time exploring the memorial at your own pace. After your time is up, move on for a guided tour of the museum.

Your guide tells you all about the history of Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II and their part in WWII. Walk through some of the 13 surviving former prison blocks that now feature museum exhibits. See diaries, letters, and other personal items from people who spent time at the concentration camp. Your guide takes you through both areas.

After your experience at the Holocaust memorial, ride back to Krakow and get dropped back off at your hotel.

A solemn visit to Auschwitz

The Auschwitz camps should not be called an attraction, because they are not. This is a landmark which should be respected and remembered so that it will never happen again. Prime Tours guide Thomas was promptly on time in my hotel and made sure the...More

Pickups are usually at 8.00 at the hotels - i am not sure they could accommodate you. Better to book for the next day; otherwise go for a private tour where the driver will pick you up at the train station.
