Full description
This Auschwitz-Birkenau guided tour in English departs daily from 6 central meeting points in Krakow’s Old Town. Morning departures are available between 7:00 AM and 11:00 AM and afternoon departures between 12:00 PM and 2:00 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, depending on the option, in 8-seat minivans or 22-seat minibuses, 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 3 km from Auschwitz. The Birkenau visit lasts approximately 1 hour.

For regular guided tours, the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum limits the time each group spends on the grounds to 3.5 hours including the break in between sites.

The duration may vary between 6 and 7.5 hours, including the round-trip transfers from Krakow and the guided visits. You’ll be dropped off at one of 4 central drop off points.
