We were part of a coach tour, I found the museum to be so interesting, seeing the remains of the camp and ‘Harry’ was just bringing the whole ‘great escape’ story to life. We also stopped at the nearby cemetery. Very moving.

I had a rental car, so I don't know about the local transportation options. Zagan is a big enough town, so I think there would be some available. There's no cost beyond the museum fee to tour the former camp areas... More
