Full description
Take a guided group tour to the famous Nazi concentration camps located in the vicinity of Krakow. Discover how during World War II, this complex was the largest and most deadly prison of all time. Find out where the Nazis murdered as many as 4 million people. In 1947, almost immediately after the war ended, the camps were transformed into a museum. Since then visitors can see the conditions people were forced to live in and literally feel the enormity of atrocities perpetrated upon them.

After being picked up from your hotel or apartment in Krakow, drive for approximately 1.5-hours to reach the memorial site. Begin the tour at Auschwitz I, where you will skip the ticket line and go directly inside with a certified guide after passing through an airport-style security line. After a short 10-15 minute break, travel by bus to Auschwitz-Birkenau II. Embark on a guided tour of the site for 1.5 hours. At the end of the guided portion of the visit, take some free to time to explore and reflect on your own, before returning to Krakow.
