Revisit a tragic chapter of European history on a full-day tour from Krakow to Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of the extermination and concentration camps in the Nazi Third Reich. You’ll have door-to-door transport in a private vehicle, with a documentary film screened on route, then join a 3.5-hour, guided tour of the camps. This 6- to 7-hour Auschwitz-Birkenau tour includes admission fees and transport from central Krakow, as well as a departure time that’s tailored to your schedule.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your centrally-located Krakow hotel at a time that suits you—tours run between the hours of 8am and 6pm. Traveling in a comfortable, private car, the journey takes roughly 70 minutes each way, and you’ll have the option to watch “The Liberation of Auschwitz” on your way to the camps.

Upon arrival at Auschwitz-Birkenau, join a guided tour of the moving UNESCO World Heritage Centre, with groups of up to 30 people led by English, Spanish, French, German, or Italian-speaking guides.

Using a headset throughout the tour, you’ll have 3.5 hours to explore the museum exhibition, barracks, and long rows of gas chamber chimneys. Much of the concentration camp is unchanged since liberation, and it offers a vivid glimpse of the wartime genocide carried out by German Nazis.

Auschwitz and Birkenau are roughly 1.9 miles (3 km.) apart, and transport between the camps is provided, as well as a short break before the guided tour and in between the camps. Following the tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau, begin the return trip to Krakow, where this excursion concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Great one time experience of reassurance to not allow our future to repeat horrific inhumanity

Auschwitz and Birkenau were very revealing of the history of the Holocaust and inhumanity suffered by the Jews, Polish peoples, Hungarians and others humiliated, tortured, gassed, incinerated by desires to exterminate people due to origin of nation. Detailed was the treatment and deaths of men,...More

We used Discover Krakow for our tours and they use mimi-vans that hold about 15 people. However, you may join with other groups once you get to Auschwitz, I think we ended up with about 30.
