Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum Guided Tour from Krakow
Learn the significance of Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum when you visit with a guide who shares stories about its history, its former prisoners, and its survivors. Learn about the complex and its sad past as you walk through the grounds of Auschwitz I and Birkenau (Auschwitz II). Entrance fees and round-trip transport from Krakow are provided, so you can focus on the more important details of your visit.
What to Expect
This Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum tour picks you up from your hotel early in the morning. Hop aboard a comfortable minivan limited to eight people. On board, you can take advantage of the free Wi-Fi and watch a Holocaust documentary, if it’s available at the time.

Once you arrive at the museum, follow a guide around both Auschwitz I and Birkenau (Auschwitz II) as you see the former roads, watchtowers, railway ramps, fences, crematoriums, and gas chambers. Your guide makes sure to tell you stories as you go through the exhibits and memorials, too.

After your Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum tour, get back into your minivan for the ride to Krakow, and get dropped back at your hotel upon arrival.

A sobering experience

You can't really describe how you feel after a visit to the Death Camps. I didn't expect so many red brick buildings at Auschwitz, and though all of them were open to visitors the tour we were on limited how many we went into. I...More
