Provided transportation means you can easily access this UNESCO World Heritage Site without renting a car or puzzling out public transportation.

Once you arrive, proceed directly inside and skip the often-long entry lines, since you have prebooked a tour. You'll be equipped with a headset to hear your museum guide clearly as you explore the main camp, Auschwitz I, and Birkenau, where many lives were taken. In Auschwitz II-Birkenau, listen to informative commentary while stopping at the site's most significant buildings, such as the crematoria, the gas chamber, the unloading ramp, and the barracks.

Upon the completion of this Auschwitz-Birkenau tour, return to Krakow for drop-off back in Old Town.

Very much an eye opener. The guide we had explained everything in detail and answered any questions. Hard to believe what went on at this place. Glad I went to see it.

We had about 20m but this wasn't enough for me - it was time to have a toilet break and a nip to the bookshop and a drink in the shop. You may need time just to sit in the car park and absorb what you have just seen as well.
