Auschwitz - Birkenau Memorial Tour from Krakow

Auschwitz - Birkenau Memorial Tour from Krakow

75 years ago, nearly 1.1 million men, women and children lost their lives in the German Nazi concentration camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau. Today, thousands of visitors try to reimagine the pain and anguish of the victims among the vestiges of the camps.

A guided tour of the different parts of the camp, which have now been restored as a museum and memorial, can help you understand and connect with the history of our ancestors.

• Visit the two concentration camps housed in the complex
• Return to Krakow on the same day

Spread over 191 hectares of land, the museum is symbolic of the atrocities suffered by the victims living in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps. With ruins of gas chambers and the crematoria being a part of the museum grounds, your visit can help you imagine the carnage that took place on the same grounds less than a century ago.

The rest of the complex offers equally poignant experiences and deep insight into the unfathomable pain and horrors of the 1.2 million people who led their fateful lives in these concentration camps.
You can choose for a guided tour where an experienced English-speaking guide will accompany you through the complex sharing important information about various parts of the camps and helping you better understand the significance of these camp relics.
Non-guided tours allow you to explore the complex at your own pace. Without a guide, you will have the opportunity to go through the letters of the prisoners and other remnants of the campsite and its residents. A guidebook is available for purchase along with maps of the camp and detailed description of the site.
