Auschwitz-Birkenau with Hotel Pick-up Tour

Experience a profound and educational journey with the Auschwitz-Birkenau Tour, including convenient hotel pick-up. This guided tour offers a meaningful and respectful visit to this UNESCO World Heritage Site, ensuring that we never forget the lessons of history.

Auschwitz is a haunting site of epic genocide where approximately 1.5 million people were killed during WWII's Holocaust. Today, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it poignantly commemorates the lives of those who died within its walls and fences and is a must-see when visiting Krakow.

Established in 1940, the Auschwitz-Birkenau complex is a network of German Nazi concentration camps built and operated by the Third Reich in Poland and throughout its five years of operation, was a place of systematic extermination with the majority of victims being Jews, along with Poles, Gypsies, Russian POWs and members of other nationalities.

The Martyrdom Museum was founded in 1947 covering the area of KL Auschwitz (Auschwitz I) in OÅwiÄcim and the Birkenau camp (Auschwitz II) in Brzezinka. It comprises approximately 150 buildings and 300 ruins and the original roads, fences, watchtowers and railway ramps have all been preserved. What's more, the buildings house the collection of original exhibits and documents.

Your tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau, includes a visit to Auschwitz I - the administrative centre of Auschwitz death camp - and Auschwitz II, designed and constructed quite simply as an execution facility.

As you explore the gas chambers, crematoriums and exhibition halls which are located inside the old prison blocks, listen closely as your guide sensitively explains the who, how, where, when and why of this haunting place and the key events in its history.
