Discover the history behind historic sites related to the German occupation and the entrepreneur Oskar Schindler on this guided tour around Krakow. Enjoy skip-the-line entry to the museum at Schindler’s Factory and tour the Plaszow concentration camp. Oskar Schindler was a German entrepreneur who led many Jews through the war.

Start diving into the history of World War II in Poland and the real story of Schindler. In between your tour, there will be an optional lunch break (at your own expense). Then, take a comprehensive tour of the Krakow-Plaszow Concentration Camp, a camp in the southern suburbs of Krakow, founded by the Nazis shortly after the German invasion of Poland. See the remnants of the camp facilities and learn about camp life. Originally, Plaszow opened in 1940 and was planned as a forced labor camp, but, in 1941, the camp was expanded and subsequently converted into a concentration camp. From 1942, the deportation of Jews from the Krakow Ghetto began. The area which held the camp now consists of sparsely wooded hills and fields, with one large memorial to all the victims, erected in 1964. Because the Plaszow area is now a nature preserve, a camp replica was built in the Liban Quarry, some hundred meters away, for its scenes in “Schindler’s List.”

This trip was brilliant. We stumbled across this looking for just the factory tickets, and we are glad we found this. We didn’t even know that this concentration camp existed and the tour guide was absolutely brilliant. He gave us so much information, we also were very lucky that is was just the 2 of us. He showed us so many things around the ghetto, allowed us to get in and out to take photos, explained everything we were seeing and answered all our questions. The concentration camp was again very informative. He explained everything we needed to know and more. Gave us the option to skip things if we wanted too and the option to take a different route etc. Picked us up from our accommodation, hassle free and no stress. Transport was lovely also. All in all a fantastic tour which we both would highly recommend if you are looking to not only go into the factory museum but learn about history and the concentration camp which isn’t one everyone knows about.

Simply amazing! Michael was a terrific guide and his passion and knowledge meant we overrun by 2 hours as he was happy to talk and show us everything that Krakow and Plaszow Concentration camp had to offer. Through his connections we managed to see places otherwise inaccessible. He has a vast knowledge about WW2 and was happy to discuss controversial views and opinions by his local government. Car was very comfortable for the 5 of us and at the end of the tour Michael was happy to drop us off at a different pick up location. This allowed us to avoid needing to walk back into the Old Town after arriving 2 hours later than scheduled as we had such an great experience. Michael is the man!

Group of 11 many on second visit to plaszow. This time chose to have a guide in Michael and Patrick. From start to finish the group were guided seamlessly through the site every question answered and group discussions welcomed . A must for any historical ww2 visit which in many of our groups minds is on a par with Auschwitz birkenau museum all be it on a different format .

This was a great experience. Michael (guide) was extremely knowledgeable. He went above and beyond my expectations on the site visit. I can not say enough good things about him. I am not a big museum person, but Schindler's museum was very informative. It was a bit crowded and hard to get by the other tour groups. Overall, a great time and very informative.

The guide was great, the tour superb and the information very informative. The guide knows the subject he is talking about well, I am not disappointed!
