From central Krakow, travel a bit more than an hour to reach the the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. Join a small-group tour of no more than 20 people for an intimate and sobering look into the horrific past of the former Nazi concentration and extermination camp. Now designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the memorial is one of the best surviving monuments of the mass murder of European Jews and other targeted groups by the Third Reich during World War II.
Get an overview of the camp’s origins and construction, originally as a concentration camp and later as the deadliest of all Nazi extermination sites. Tour Auschwitz I, the camp’s former administrative center, and Auschwitz II-Birkenau death camp where the majority of mass executions took place between 1940 and the camp’s liberation in 1945.
Hear about the daily lives of prisoners housed in wooden barracks, and see ruins of the gas chambers that sent an estimated one million or more people to their death. The guided tour offers a deeper look into camp history and access to sites not seen on shorter tours such as the original Auschwitz watchtowers, fences, roads, and railway ramps, plus special exhibitions. When the tour is complete, board the shared transport and reflect on the return drive to Kraków.
