  • Roundtrip transportation is available from most centrally located Krakow hotels. Please arrange pickup from your hotel or a nearby location when you call to confirm your reservation. You are required to wait at the reception 5 minutes before your scheduled pickup time.

  • If you do not require hotel pickup, or your hotel cannot be serviced, you must make your own way to main tour departure point: the bus park at 7 Powisle Street, across from the Sheraton Grand Hotel Krakow. Check-in at this location is 15 minutes prior to the booked tour start time.

  • The maximum size of backpacks or handbags brought into the Museum cannot exceed dimensions 30x20x10 cm. Larger bags must be left in the bus.

  • There is a 15-minute break during the tour, when you can eat and drink a snack and a bottle of water you are recommended to bring.

  • Taking photos in the buildings with the use of flash is forbidden. You are allowed to take photos only in selected parts of the Museum.

  • Eating and smoking, as well as acting in a loud manner are forbidden at the Museum.

  • Since now, for all bookings made for 2020 for Auschwitz-Birkenau tour, we need surname and name of every participant (the same as in their ID or PASSPORT). If we will not get it, we will not be able to buy entrance tickets to Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum.

  • Please make sure to bring with you to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, ID or PASSPORT, because the guards will ask about it before enter.

What you can expect

Around 1.5 million people—Jews, Poles, and political prisoners—died at the hands of the Nazis at Auschwitz-Birkenau. See for yourself where the atrocities of the Nazis' “Final Solution” were carried out on this poignant guided tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum.

Settle into your seat in a comfortable shuttle for the ride out to the site and watch a 55-minute documentary screened to give you the background and history of the camp on your way. Once you arrive at Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of the Nazi death camps, head out on a tour through the exhibitions in the prison blocks, the gas chambers, and the crematorium.

Step inside the Martydrom Museum to see sculptures and artwork created by former prisoners, examine exhibits chronicling the atrocities of the Holocaust along the way, and feel free to ask questions of your guide before you return to your shuttle and ride back to Krakow.
