Birkenau & Monowitz Self-Guided Tour

A day of reflection awaits you on this excursion to Birkenau and Monowitz, two of the main camps of Auschwitz. We'll meet up at 9:35 am on Straszewskiego Street in Krakow, where we'll board the bus to Auschwitz-Birkenau. The journey will take about one hour.

Having arrived at the extermination camp, also known as Auschwitz II, you'll be left to visit the memorial at your own pace. You'll have two and a half hours to tour the camp where so many people were murdered, learning about the horrific crimes that took place here as you see the barracks and the the remains of gas chambers and cremation ovens.

After visiting Birkenau, we'll head back to the bus for the drive over to Auschwitz III, or the Monowitz concentration camp, where prisoners were sent for forced labour. You'll have time here to contemplate the sculptures at the Fountain of Tears.

At 2:45 pm we'll return to the bus for the journey back to Krakow, where you'll be dropped back off at around 4 pm.
