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 is included in a list of museums allowed to visit for free with our Krakow City Pass.
