About Auschwitz Tour

Do you want to get to know the true story about World War II, Holocaust and Nazi Concentration Camp?

The only way to do so is the Auschwitz - Birkenau Museum Tour.

Auschwitz Tour reveals one of the most (in)famous period of human kind history. You will see authentic crematiories, gas chambers, barracks. Every year millions of tourists visit Auschwitz and walk through the gate with an inscription: “Arbeit Macht Frei” (Work sets you free). 

You will see:

  • Memorable Unesco World Heritage Site
  • Original wooden barracks, documents, gas chambers, pictures, personal belongings and more

Auschwitz Birkenau details:

Prisoners from all over the Europe (mostly Jews) were transported to Auschwitz.

Auschwitz Birnekau Memorial Museum was established in 1947 after WWII after Red Army liberated the camp. Numbers are shocking over 1 million people died; 960 00 Jews where among them (438 000 were Hungarian, 300 000 were Poles, 70 000 from France […])

It is said that this place is a symbol of what nationalism can lead to. Prisoners lived in horrible conditions with 700 kcal per day, forced to work over their strength. You will witness real places and barracks were they lived in. 

Auschwitz has been put on the UNESCO World Heritage List as well as Wieliczka Salt Mine - check out the Wieliczka Salt Mine Tour for more information.

Faq

Is there an option to pick me up from a place which is not on the list?

Unfortunately, we have a limited number of pick up points which are presented on the map above.

How long do Auschwitz tours last?

The guided Auschwitz tour lasts about 3,5h and one-way transfer from Krakow to Auschwitz takes about 1h 30min (+ pickup time) so the whole tour takes about 7 - 7,5 hours.

I am using a wheelchair, can I participate in Auschwitz Tour?

Yes, you can visit Auschwitz with an assisting person. Bearing in mind that the wheelchair should be capable of folding so it would fit into a vehicle (please contact us beforehand if you have any difficulties with moving). However, some sites in Auschwitz are available only through steps so you may not be able to see some of them. Sightseeing in a wheelchair is difficult due to the historical aspect of the buildings (no driveways, large steps, and stairs, pebbly ground).

What luggage size can I take to Auschwitz?

The dimensions are 30x20x10 cm and you will not be able to enter with any luggage that exceeds those. These are strictly followed and controlled. You can leave your bigger luggage in our minibus, it will be locked and supervised by the driver.

I am interested in WWII history - what others tours can I take to enlarge my knowledge about this subject?

The History of World War II in Krakow is such an interesting and tragic subject, no wonder why you want to learn more about it. We highly recommend taking Schindler's Museum Guided Tour - it will not only teach you about the story of Oscar Schindler but also the conditions of living in Krakow through the wartime. 

Another place where you can learn more about War and particularly Krakow Ghetto is the Eagle Pharmacy. You will discover the story of Tadeusz Pankiewicz, a pharmacist that volunteered to be locked inside Krakow Ghetto in order to help Jewish people survive in the ghetto. The Eagle Pharmacy Ticket is also available on our website.
