your experience

As the largest concentration camp of Nazi Germany, Auschwitz-Birkenau offers a rich slice of World War II history. Spread over 191 hectares, the museum thrums with the tales of unthinkable horrors faced by over 1 million people who were sent here.

The self-guided tour allows you to take your time to go through the photographs, letters of the prisoners, documents, and also learn stories about the victims. The ruins of gas chambers and the crematoria serve as living proof of the carnage that once took place here. You can also buy a guide book with a map to learn about important information about the site in more detail.
