Description

The Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp Memorial is a solemn place commemorating more than a million victims of the Nazis who perished during the blood-filled days of World War II. Start your visit in the early morning to avoid the crowds and tour the UNESCO-listed site with an expert guide.

The largest death camp in history, Auschwitz-Birkenau is synonymous with the Holocaust and genocide. Learn about the atrocities of the Nazis' so-called “Final Solution” on a sobering and informative guided tour of the complex, which was designed and used as a labour camp and extermination facility.

Arbeit Macht Frei” - “Work Makes Free”. So says the slogan on the heavy gates of this tragic site. Millions of visitors come here each year to remember and to pay their respects. Your small group is among the first to enter the premises in the morning. Learn about the tragic history of this place and the fate of the camp's inmates from a knowledgeable and sensitive guide.

The original watchtowers, fences, roads and railway ramps remain intact, and since 1979 the camp has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Walk through Auschwitz I and II, which together consist of approximately 150 buildings and 300 ruins including gas chambers, prison blocks and crematoriums. Visit the Martyrdom Museum before returning to Krakow with a deeper awareness of the tragedies of the 20th century.

Very informative guide and well delivered We were picked up at our Hotel for our early start, 21 seater Minibus interesting video about the history. we arrived at Auschwitz 1 there was a small break (make sure you keep an eye on your tour as they then set of with out us and we had to go find them) Guide was very informative and by using headphones and radio connection there voice could be kept low and did not intrude to the atmosphere of the interesting site. At times it felt kind of rushed so we shall be going again some time to get a slower impression We were supplied with a snack of two rolls one ham and cheese and the other with Cream cheese (not good if you don't like cheese) an apple, breakfast biscuit and a bottle of water we were then taken to Auschwitz-Birkenau for the second part of the tour having walked about five miles we were taken back to our pick up point

Awesome experience and very glad I went. This is why I came to Poland. However, when I booked, the ticket said it included two sandwiches, water and fruit - that was never provided so I ended up having to buy something from one of the shops. Don’t say it will be included if it wasn’t.

Incredibly moving. Very educational. Expands your experience from being intellectual to also being very emotional.
