Visit the largest former concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau on a 8-hour tour by minivan from Krakow. Learn about the genocide of World War II from your knowledgeable guide.

Highlights

  • Visit the largest former Nazi concentration camp on a 8-hour tour of Auschwitz
  • Learn about the terrible history of the death camps of Auschwitz and Birkenau
  • See significant monuments from the terrible events of World War II and Hitler’s Third Reich

Description

First, travel by minivan for 1 hour and 20 minutes before you arrive at the camp. Founded on 27 April 1940, Auschwitz became the site of extermination by inhumane conditions and physical destruction of prisoners. It was the biggest death camp of the Nazi regime and during your tour a licensed guide will sensitively take you to see the barbed wire fences, watchtowers, barracks, gallows and gas chambers; these depict the circumstances under which the Nazi genocide took place. Spend 2 hours here with a short 20 minute break.  You will also visit Birkenau, a short 5-minute drive from Auschwitz. Birkenau comprised of more than 300 buildings, including latrines, watchtowers and gas chambers. Although a challenge, it’s important to remember these events to make sure that this history is never repeated. Spend approximately 1.5 hours here before the 1 hour 20 minute drive back to Krakow.
