Full description
This Auschwitz-Birkenau guided tour in English departs daily from a central meeting point in Krakow’s Old Town. Morning departures are available between 7:00 AM and 10:00 AM and afternoon departures between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM. The exact time and place of the departure will be provided after the booking via email. Hotel pick-ups are available only in selected areas, and if requested in advance.

Transportation to the Auschwitz Museum is arranged in minivans with 8 passengers, along with your driver. After the 1.5-hour drive to the site you’ll have a short break before the tour.

The tour begins at Auschwitz, the main camp, in a group of no more than 30 visitors. You’ll be led by a professional, museum-employed guide. Receivers and earpieces are provided by the Auschwitz Museum to ensure that you’re able to hear the guide clearly.

You’ll spend around 2 hours taking in all the permanent exhibitions and buildings at the main camp, and then have a 15-minute break. Following the break there will be a short drive to Birkenau, the second part of the camp, located about 3km from Auschwitz. The Birkenau visit lasts approximately 1.5 hours.

The duration of the excursion is around 6.5 hours, including the round-trip transfers from Krakow and the guided visits. You’ll be dropped off at approximately 4:00 PM.
