Taking a trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau, the biggest of the Nazis’ World War II concentration camps, from Krakow should mean fully focusing on the sites rather than fussing about transport. This tour delivers: with round-trip private transport, complete with an onboard documentary on the site’s terrible history; and a shared-group tour of the exhibitions, barracks, and memorials across both camps. Admission and hotel pickup and drop-off are included.

    Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Benefit from pick-up at your hotel or apartment in Krakow city center, and then journey to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum by private car. Watch a documentary about the liberation of the labor camps and learn more about the horrors of the Holocaust. Upon arrival at the infamous concentration camps of the Nazi regime, take a guided group tour of the site in English, Spanish or Italian. Journey back to the dark days of World War II as you see the remains of the barracks, railroad tracks and gas chambers used to exterminate more than 1 million Jews. Avail of a free transfer to explore both the Auschwitz and Birkenau camps, located 3 kilometers apart. Get short breaks to reflect on the terrible events that changed the course of European history in the 20th century. Then, return to Krakow and get dropped off at your accommodation or a central location in the city if you prefer.
