Auschwitz-Birkenau and Schindler's Factory Tour from Krakow

1. Auschwitz-Birkenau and Schindler's Factory Tour from Krakow

On this 8-hour excursion from Krakow you’ll visit the Nazi concentration camps of Birkenau and Auschwitz and also the Schindler Factory Museum. Birkenau was built by the prisoners of Auschwitz and by October 1941 served as an extermination camp for approximately 125,000 prisoners of war. This number continued to grow until the beginning of 1945. It has been calculated that from 1-1.5 million people were killed by that time. Before the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1945, the Nazis attempted to destroy the camp and all documentation. As they were only partially successful, the Polish government decided to restore the site as a memorial to the victims. You’ll also visit Oscar Schindler’s Factory Museum, located in the former enamel factory. Take a journey back in time to Krakow during WWII. Schindler famously saved the lives of over 1,000 people during the Holocaust. The story and the site were brought to international attention by Steven Spielberg in his 1993 Oscar-winning movie, Schindler's List.

What people are saying about Silesian Voivodeship

The pick up was smooth and it was clear what the planning of the day was. The tourguide at Auschwitz was really good, as he explained in a calm and serious manner, which I really appreciated at such an important site. I was the only one of my bus group doing the Schindler tour too and I got lucky by being the only one in the private tour group, which I absolutely enjoyed! The tourguide explained so much and I got to ask a lot of questions.

I really enjoyed the activities. The Schindler's Factory tour was more focused on Kraków history and the war as opposed to the specifics of Schindler's work. Auschwitz tour was very good and I loved the stop off round the Jewish quarter with informative tour guide.

Excellent trip extremely well organised and well worth visiting. We had an excellent driver for the day I think his name was Peter.

Very nice guide. The tour guide in Auschwitz was very knowledgeable. All in all a very positive experience, highly recommendable!

Excellent tour. The staff looked after us very well. Very well informed. Would definitely use the company again
