What awaits you:

Visit the concentrations camps at Auschwitz and Birkenau, tragically powerful symbols of 20th-century atrocities.

The camp at Auschwitz was set up by the Nazis on the outskirts of Oświęcim, Poland in 1940. Built for the Third Reich, the camp was established to address the growing number of mass arrests of Poles and overcrowding in existing prisons. Initially the camp was to follow the model of others created by the Nazis in the 1930s. In 1942, however, it became the center for the Endlösung der Judenfrage, or the Final Solution, which was the Nazi plan to exterminate Jews from all Third Reich territories.

Your experienced local guide will take you on tours of both Auschwitz and Birkenau. This will give you a better understanding of the Holocaust and Nazi crimes against the Poles, Gypsies, Jews, and many others.

You’ll learn about the historical and political background behind the creation of the camp at Auschwitz as you visit the prison blocks, gas chambers, and crematorium.

Nice excursion but the visit to Auschwitz 1 is much too fast. We have the impression of being in a hurry, no time to stop to read the signs, we visited only 4 barracks out of twenty. It's become a tourist factory and that's sad.

This was a well organised trip and guide with caring and sensitive hosts. I am from New Zealand, and was greatly appreciative of how this whole trip was facilitated. Very intense tour , but our guide talked us through the details with care and sensitivity which made the tour and trip as bearable as it could be. Many thanks and would recommend this highly.

Excellent tour with an excellent guide. If you are too sensitive don't do it. But if you want to know the history as it was of the fields, there you have it.
