We visited the camp on a Sunday. I’ll start by saying the camp itself was an experience and we are v glad we visited. Although not a lot of information in English, it is still worth a visit.
However!! We got the bus there which...More
This was our first visit to any type of camp and were very unsure what to expect. Our journey started from Gdansk... Complicated trip ... Ended up getting taxi as bus station terrible as we're staff in it ... Probably not a sightseeing top of...More
This was a very sobering experience. As someone who has always been struck by the atrocities of the Holocaust it was very interesting and a valuable experience to visit somewhere like this. There was a good balance - it was very informative while at the...More

The private tours from Gdańsk were very over-priced, so took TripAdvisor advice and caught the regular 870 bus from Gdańsk bus station (just behind train station). It cost 14 zloty per person for the 80 minute journey. I have attached the bus timetables (correct as...More

Located just over an hour from Gdansk, the concentration camp is easily accessible by bus, which is comfortable and air conditioned. It is free to get in, however, there is a donation box available, which obviously assists with the upkeep of the premises.
We didn't fancy taking the bus, being put off by the hour and a half trip there, and then back again (ignoring waiting time) but prices from touring companies were well over £200 when trying to book from the uk.
But had booked an airport...More

We went there Sat, May19th 2018, BUT we were with a pre-arranged tour from a cruise ship line docked in Gdansk, so maybe this was a special time/day? I see some other answers that state days of Mon-Fri, so I don't know for sure. I hope it works for you somehow. Well worth it.
