    You can do both Auschwitz and Birkenau in one day but if you are interested in the details and archives you can spend several days. Don't forget to visit the country barracks with their own stories.

    This is a place you have to visit in your life. The horrors that took place here are hard to believe untill you see it with your own eyes. The guided tours are good and available in various languages.

    A must see!! We arranged our trip through escape2poland. It cost approx. £13 pp. They pick you up/drop you off at your hotel. Took around 1hr to get there by bus from Kraków. Full trip took 6hrs!

    Must see place if you're interested in history. Guides are very informated and helpful. To make sure you've seen everything be there for two days.

    Although it is sad Auschwitz is a must see place. Entrance is free but if you want to visit before 3 pm you have to buy a guided tour.

    An awful part of history but a must see! Lots of tours run from Kraków, we used Escape 2 Poland, around £20 per person with hotel pick up included.

    The organized tour is vey impressive. Try to book a week in advance as the English tours fill up and I saw some American tourists get upset at not getting to go on a tour straight away.

    Definitely worth a visit. Something which you read in the history books is brought to life by the vivid descriptions of the tour guide

    Please make sure to see both the base camp (Auschwitz) and the second part of the camp (Birkenau) where most of the extermination took place. Birkenau will give you a terrifying sense of scale.

    Everyone should visit this place once in their life. You have learned about it, seen it in movies,... but that's nothing compared to the real thing. And of course, take a guide...

    A must visit if in the Krakow area. Truly harrowing but incredibly informative. There are a lot of companies who will arrange a tour. Entry is free.

    "The one who does not remember history is bound to live through it again..." it is the most dramatic place where i had been, everyone should visit here to face up to a part of real history.

    Take 2 to 3 hours for Auschwitz. Birkenau is huge and I'd say you need 3 hours to take it all in. It's overwhelming and surreal. There's a free shuttle bus between the 2 camps.

    A visit to Auschwitz/Birkenau is something that you must do before you die, it is truly moving. It is only an hour from Kraków by car, and should be a top priority to visit.

    When you enter between 10h00 and 15h00, you're obliged to join a group. You can come after 15h, start with Birkenau or join the group and wander off by yourself.

    The only tip I can leave is it's a place that everyone should visit. This horrific event should never be forgotten! Moving experience beyond words!

    If you start here, the guide will take you to Auschwitz ll. Highly recommended.

    Come in as early as possible. Buses from Krakow take almost two hours so you'll have to leave the hotel really early. The tour is 40 zlotys and lasts for 3 1/2 hours. The tour is good value for money.

    I had a bad feeling of going to Auschwitz and end up visiting the site as a “tourist attraction”. I was wrong. I understood how reading books don't compare to the concrete experience of being there.

    Very moving place but a must see place. Very good guides available and well organised and informative.

    Take your time for this, and don't forget to wander around and also walk to the far end. Very impressive.

    Every person needs to come here once in their life time. This camp is so huge. Be prepared for lots of walking.

    So impressed, lots of information, it needs to spend a full day, the bad thing is it closes at 4pm.

    definitely take a (early) tour, go for both camps and if your guide tells you don't take photos out of respect, don't do it!

    Very touching place, good as the end of the trip, more like a 'one time visit', usually people don't go there twice. Worth visiting
  • Patrik O.
    Amazing tour, definitely worth it to see it once! I feel sorry for victims, but everyone should go there at least once in life.

    The complex of camps, which became a symbol of genocide, terror and the Holocaust, was established in 1940. During World War II the Nazis murdered hundreds of thousands of Jews, Poles, Gypsies.

    I could NOT believe how HUGE Birkenau ( Auschwitz II ) is. If you are in the area, you must visit.
  • Elena Z.
    We took 6 hour tour. Maybe we were not lucky with a guide, as she was repeating herself so many times, it was very boring, as if she didn't know what to say.

    You MUST SEE what GERMAN'S have built! An amazing and shoking experience of what the prisoners have been through!

    You need to go to info counter and get a ticket for your entrance time. We didn't know and had to skip the Auschwitz side. Other tips are pretty useless

    The trip is not as depressive as you might expect, and definitely worth a visit. So don't worry and go.
