Auschwitz 1

Get picked up from Krakow and board a comfortable bus for the 1.5-hour ride to the Auschwitz-Birkenau complex. Upon arrival, your local guide will show you around the site and tell you about its tragic history. Walk through the gate marked "Arbeit Macht Frei" to step into Auschwitz 1, the original concentration camp. Here, tour the barracks, view black and white photographs taken while the camp was in operation, see the prison cells, and learn some harrowing statistics about the people held captive here, mostly Jews.


Next, visit Birkenau which sits a few kilometers apart from Auschwitz 1. The first thing you will notice here is it’s massive size. This camp was built in 1941 to house the huge number of deportees from Europe. In January 1945, the Germans blew up most of the barracks and the crematoriums to hide their crimes, but is still well worth the visit. Spend sometime here listening to how the Nazi "Final Solution to the Jewish Question" took place.

Oui Pour information votre site n'est pas clair Nous avons reçu une confirmation nous indiquant que les billets étaient téléchargeables or rien. Nous avons stressé pensant peut être à une arnaque or c'est mr schuttle qui nous les a transmis. Cela sera intéressant de le préciser au moment de la confirmation de la réservation. tout c'est bien passé et nous avons été heureux de l'expérience. Bien cordialement

We booked the tour because it started at 8. Instead we had to be ready at 6.25. The information sent to us said that we would be back at 6 - but that was for those also seeing the mines. The guide at the site spoke ok english but her pronounciation was so bad that she was difficult to understand. She talked nonstop and there was no time to read signs. Should have been more time in general on both sites. On the way back the driver insisted on loud music which no one was interested in. We afsked Jim to turn it down but gave up.
