Description

Benefit from pickup at the location of your choice in Krakow, and then journey with a driver to the most significant symbol of the Holocaust of World War II. Arrive at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum in the small town of Oświęcim (about 60 kilometers west of Krakow) and get a 3-hour tour of the Auschwitz camps with a licensed guide. See some of the original buildings of the largest concentration camp of Nazi Germany, and pause for thought as you hear about the horrific scale of the mass extermination. Visit the gas chambers where so many of the inmates were put to death and see piles of clothes stripped from the people sent to the camps by the Nazis. Pause to reflect on the terrible history before you move on the Birkenau camp for a 1-hour guided tour. Return to Krakow at the end of a moving day and get dropped off at your hotel or apartment on arrival.
