What To Expect

See the horrors of Auschwitz-Birkenau and attend the fully guided tour at Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II Birkenau. During your tour, you will travel between two camps in a comfortable shuttle bus.It is impossible for people who were born after WWII to imagine what happened at the time of the Holocaust. A visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau helps you understand the biggest human tragedy in history.The Nazi camp in Auschwitz was established in 1941 when the first prisoners arrived there by train. For 4 years, the camp in Auschwitz was being expanded until Auschwitz II Birkenau was built, with gas chambers, and then Auschwitz III – a work camp. Thousands of people experienced physical and psychological abuse and were murdered. The SS hurriedly destroyed most evidence of crimes and tests carried out on prisoners at the site.Your tour at Auschwitz starts in front of the main entrance at Auschwitz I where our representative will hand over your entrance ticket. The tour includes visits to two camps: Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II Birkenau with personal attendance of the official Auschwitz Guide. You will see the remains of barracks, watchtowers, railway ramps, gas chambers, and crematoriums. A comfortable shuttle bus will drive you from one camp to another and back. The Guide will speak to you through the microphone and all the visitors will be equipped with headphones.After visiting Auschwitz I camp, you are travelling to the second camp Birkenau by shuttle bus provided by Asuchwitz Birkenau Museum.With this skip-the-line ticket, you do not have to wait at the ticket office to purchase the entrance ticket.
