Full description
Our One Day Tour to both Wieliczka Salt Mine and Auschwitz – Birkenau Museum provides the occasion to spend the day effectively without the stress and worry of getting tickets to the museums. We provide pick up and return to designated meeting points, highly qualified official guides at both locations and between the two tours you will have time for a break to eat lunch box included in the tour price. We start our day in the Wieliczka Salt Mine – where nature and man have created an extraordinary attraction on a world’s scale. The magic of underground salt tunnels, beautiful handcrafted chapels and charming underground lakes make this tour unique. Wieliczka was the only mining facility that had been continuously active for 700 years - resulting in a huge underground kingdom with 240 kilometres of galleries and 2,350 chambers, reaching the depth of 327 metres - a massive feat of human effort and ingenuity. The visitors are guided in groups and the tour takes about 3 hours. You will walk about 2km through the mine, please wear comfortable shoes. The temperature in the mine is 14°C. Light jackets in the summer are recommended. Then we proceed with the tour and visit the Auschwitz – Birkenau Museum - the largest concentration camp of the Nazi Third Reich. It claimed the most victims, and was the only concentration camp that functioned simultaneously as a centre for systematic extermination in gas chambers. You will see the original roads, fences, watchtowers and gas chambers. Auschwitz I is where the Nazis opened the first Auschwitz camps, where they murdered the prisoners. Birkenau is where the Nazis erected most of the machinery of mass extermination. The nearly 200 hectares of grounds include the ruins of the gas chambers and crematoria and places filled with human ashes. Your itinerary in the Museum involves entrance to the Auschwitz I Museum and exhibits, a 15-minute break, and a visit to Birkenau.
