What You Can Expect

Auschwitz and Birkenau Tour with Hotel Pick Up from Krakow

The Main Gate

Choose from a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your driver during pickup at your central Krakow hotel or another designated meeting point. Drive about 1.5 hours outside the city to reach the city of Oświęcim and the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. The deadliest of all Nazi concentration and extermination camps, Auschwitz-Birkenau was the site of an estimated 1 million murders during World War II. Today, it is preserved as a memorial to those victims and a reminder of the harrowing events that took place there.

Skip the entrance lines with reserved tickets, and enter the camp through the main gate beneath the infamous ‘Arbeit Macht Frei’ sign. With an English-speaking guide, tour the exhibits and ruins of Auschwitz I, the former SS administrative center, and Auschwitz II-Birkenau, where most of the murders took place. See photos and the personal belongings of prisoners, and tour the remnants of the barracks, a bathhouse, a watchtower, gas chambers, and crematoria.

After several hours at the site, climb back aboard the bus and take some time to reflect on the return drive to Krakow, where you will be dropped off at your original departure point.
