Full-Day Tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau and Wieliczka Salt Mine from Krakow
From US$75.87
Overview

Travel between two of Krakow’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites with ease during a day trip to  Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum and the Wieliczka Salt Mine. As well as convenient hotel pickup and drop-off, you’ll get skip-the-line entry to both landmarks. A guided tour reveals information you may otherwise miss if you visit these sights on your own.

What to Expect

Following pickup from your Krakow hotel in the morning, you’ll travel to Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, a UNESCO-listed former Nazi concentration camp. (The drive is about 1.5 hours.) A timed ticket allows you to bypass long lines outside of the complex and start your guided tour immediately.

After two hours visiting the former SS administrative center and Holocaust memorial, you’ll have a break to purchase lunch.

The next stop is the  Wieliczka Salt Mine, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you’ll descend into the tunnels of one of the world’s oldest salt mines. During a 3-hour tour, you'll see saline lakes and sculptures carved from salt before returning to the surface via an elevator. The tour concludes with hotel drop-off in Krakow.

The tour was a full day but well worth it. Guided tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau gave us much more sense of what happened there than documentary etc has given us. And the salt mine tour was in different ways amazing. The tour bus came to...More

Long day but worth it

Early start with a late finish but all very well organised so if you are on tight deadline highly recommended. Large groups meant at time the guide was talking about an exhibit in one room whilst you were still waiting to get in so felt...More

I think it was 7-30pm at night, so if you don’t want it to take up a full day you could it them on separate days.

You cannot go by yourself, if you’re part of a group, you will be directed to a tour guide and he will guide you through the location! If you go there by yourself with no tour booked you have to look it up on their local... More
