by DiscoverCracow Non-refundable No booking or credit card fees
Price Not Available

Learn about the atrocities of World War II with a visit to the well-preserved remains of the Auschwitz and Birkenau concentration camps, and uncover the underground caverns of the Wieliczka Salt Mine. On back-to-back days, explore 2 of Krakow's can't-miss sights with an experienced guide to lead the way.

Get picked up from Krakow city centre and settle in for the short drive out of town to reach the grounds of Auschwitz and Birkenau. Follow your guide inside both sites, where you can spend some time examining exhibits that chronicle the horrible tragedies of the Holocaust. Pass through former barracks and gas chambers while you listen to details about life in the camps, and then return to the shuttle for a ride back to Krakow.

On day 2, meet up with your guide at the same meeting point and head out to the Wieliczka Salt Mine. In operation from the 13th century until 2007, this spectacular underground labyrinth includes dozens of statues and 4 chapels, all carved out of the soft rock by miners. Make your way down 380 steps to the cool underground chambers to check out chandelier-lit chapels, learn about the earliest methods of salt mining, and examine your reflection in a subterranean lake.

If you choose one-day option: after the Auschwitz-Birkenau visit you will have a short lunch break in Krakow. Please note the meal is not included.

There was a mix up with the booking; when we arrived at the office we were told our booking had been cancelled and it took quite a while to recify. The staff were quite rude about it. The tour of Auschwitz was very good, it is definitely worth doing. The section of Birkenau was too rushed, we couldn't even go and see the memorial which was a real shame. The salt mine is a really good trip and again worth doing whilst you are in Krakow. Our guide was very good, and there was a good pace to the tour.
