DescriptionVisit the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Museum and explore at your own pace on a self-guided tour. Enjoy the confidence of a pre-booked ticket and transfer from Krakow. Leave Krakow for a confrontational day of reflection with a visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps. The camps are a ceremonial place that leaves an indelible impression on all visitors and are also an important monument to the victims of the Holocaust. Funded by the Nazi party in 1940, Auschwitz-Birkenau became both a symbol of human suffering and a witness to physical and emotional exhaustion. As the largest concentration camp served by the Nazis, it became the final resting place of millions of people, mainly Jews, who were killed in hideous gas chambers. After arriving at the museum, collect a free admission ticket with the help of your tour leader and pick up an informational booklet. Spend approximately 2 hours of free time in the Auschwitz I Museum. Take a short break and spend about 1 hour in the Auschwitz-Birkenau II Museum. After a total of 3 hours in both museums, the tour leader will be waiting for you in the same place in the parking lot to take you back to Krakow.
