Auschwitz - the memorable experience
Visit these two very significant sites related to the tragic history of the Second World War on one day.
This combined tour is an ideal offer for those visitors who have only one spare day to go on tour while visiting Krakow and want to make the most of it. This is a very practical offer for those tourists who simply want to see as much as possible in one day.
Our excellent English speaking driver will pick you up directly from the train station and he will take a very good care of you throughout the whole day. A driver always awaits you holding a sheet of paper with your name written so you will find each other without any problems in this way.
You will start the tour with visiting the former Oscar Schindler’s Enamel Factory. The museum established in 2010 in the original Factory’s administrative building is devoted to the history of WW II in Krakow. The unforgettable and touching multimedia exhibition entitled ‘Krakow under Nazi Occupation 1939-1945’ presents the wartime history in a very modern and accessible manner. According to thousands of visitors this museum is definitely one of the best ones they have ever seen. Although you will not find too much information about the Oscar Schindler’s Factory from its working days, this is one of the most interesting and most often visited sites in Poland. The exhibition presents the wartime history in a very modern manner.
Visit to the former Schindler’s Factory Museum is a very good introduction to the second part of this tour at the same time – Auschwitz-Birkenau. By taking this combined whole day tour you will learn a lot about this tragic time in the world’s history.
Entrance tickets to the Schindler’s Factory must be pre-booked (due to daily limits) and we will do it for you. Our driver will take you through the ticket gate so you can enter the site with no hassle. You visit the site by yourselves which is very easy thanks to interactive exposures. The visit usually takes 1.5 – 2 hours, but many people require some more time to explore the site.
After visiting Schindler’s Factory our driver will take you to Auschwitz-Birkenau. A guided tour in English at Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum is included in the total price. Our English speaking driver will take a very good care of you for all the time during the tour. You will enter through a fast track entrance at Auschwitz so you can avoid regular crowds in the ticket hall. A driver will stay with you until you meet your local guide at the Museum and join your tour. After about two hours guided tour at Auschwitz I and a short break you will be taken to Auschwitz II-Birkenau where you will continue your guided visit for about an hour.
After returning to Krakow our driver can take you directly to the train station or to any other place within the center (if you wish to have some time for dinner/lunch/shopping etc.).
