  • Warsaw: Warsaw Ghetto Private Walking Tour with Hotel Pickup

    2. Warsaw: Warsaw Ghetto Private Walking Tour with Hotel Pickup

    Experience an informative and impressive tour of the Warsaw Ghetto. The topic of this tour is the history of the establishment and liquidation of the largest ghetto in Europe. In 1940 the Nazis established the ghetto in the heart of Warsaw. Over 400,000 Jews from Warsaw and the surrounding area were crammed in an area of 4 square kilometers. 100,000 people died here from exhaustion, hunger, and disease and more than 300,000 were killed in Treblinka extermination camp. As a result of the attempt to completely liquidate the ghetto, an uprising broke out in 1943. The unequal struggle between the rebels against the armed German troops lasted nearly one month. In revenge, the Nazis completely destroyed the ghetto. It was survived by only a few Jews including Władysław Szpilman, the hero of the movie “The Pianist” by Roman Polanski. Before the Second World War, the second largest Jewish comm...

    See a wonderful city in a unique way! We can't recommend this tour enough and our guide, Martin, was the font of all knowledge and a great person to spend the morning with.

It was a great and well organized tour... this tour gives an excellent overview of some highlights of the city. We started at Royal Park (Lazienki), continued the tour at the POLIN museum of the history of Polish Jews and finished the tour by walking in the Old Town. A lot of interesting information was shared and I definitely know where to go back and stay a bit longer for a visit. The tour is something to be recommended.
