See the largest of the former Nazi German concentration camps Auschwitz-Birkenau – the site that has become the symbol of terror and genocide. Enter the ‘Underground World of Wonders’ and visit the oldest Salt Mine in Europe – the Salt Mine of Wieliczka.
This is a private, direct door-to-door tour with a driver’s waiting time and a return transfer. Guided tours in English at Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and at the Salt Mines are included in the total price. Our English speaking driver will take a very good care of you for all the time during the tour.
At first you will be taken to Auschwitz. You arrive about half hour before your tour, as there’s about 20-25 minute time required for the security check. This applies to all types of Auschwitz tours. The driver will stay with you until you meet your local guide. After about two hours guided tour and a short break you will be taken to Birkenau where you will continue your guided visit for about one hour. After visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau a driver will take you to a local restaurant for lunch (your meal is not included in the total price of the tour).
Visiting the Salt Mine in Wieliczka is the next item of this tour. The Mine was inscribed onto the First UNESCO World Natural and Cultural Heritage List in 1978. Every year it is visited by over one million tourists. It reaches a depth of 327 meters and the mine passage is almost 300 km long! The Salt Mine continuously produced kitchen salt from the 13th century until 1996, being one of the world’s oldest operating salt mines.
The entrance to the Salt Mine you will find free of hassle here with our driver’s assistance.
Visiting the mine always takes place under the supervision of the guide, there is no possibility to visit the site on your own. Visiting usually lasts approximately 2.5 hours and includes about 2.5 km walk down the comfortable and about 2 metres wide corridors and paths. Three levels are made available for visitors to see. There are 20 chambers and about 800 steps to climb. Tourists enter the mine descending 380 steps to the first level (64 m underground) and return to the surface by an elevator from the third level (135 m). Temperature in the mine is between 14 and 16 degrees Celsius, all year round.

Auschwitz – Birkenau Memorial Museum (found in 1947) was included on the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites. The first transport of Polish political prisoner deportees arrived in Auschwitz on June 14, 1940. This day is regarded as the date the camp started to function. Afterwards, Soviet Prisoners of War, Gypsies and prisoners of many other nationalities from all over the German-occupied Europe were transported here to suffer and die in hellish conditions. In 1942, notably after the construction of the nearby Auschwitz II-Birkenau concentration camp, destruction of the European Jews started to come. Most of them were immediately put to death in the gas chambers of Birkenau. Those who spared immediate death by being selected for labour were systematically stripped of their individual identities. Most prisoners survived at Auschwitz only a few weeks or months. A visit to Auschwitz will let you learn more about this tragic time in the world’s history.
