Remembering the Holocaust: A Sobering Journey through Auschwitz I and II – Birkenau

Let Poland At War Tours guide you through the harrowing history of Auschwitz, the infamous German Concentration and Extermination Camp situated in the Polish city of Oswiecim. Embark on a poignant guided tour of Auschwitz I, previously an abandoned Polish Army barracks, and Auschwitz II – Birkenau.

Walk under the notorious entrance gate at Birkenau, which tragically marked the point of no return for so many innocent lives. Observe the infamous ramp where countless Jews disembarked before proceeding towards the gas chambers and crematoria – a grim testament to the darkest hour of human history, partially destroyed by the fleeing Germans amidst the advancing Soviet Army.

Booking a tour to Auschwitz:

If you would like to book a tour to Auschwitz, please contact us directly, with advanced notice, to ensure we can secure your tickets for the date you would like to visit. Tours of Auschwitz are highly regulated by the Auschwitz Museum and therefore, our tours are based on options set out by the Museum. All guides for our Auschwitz tours are licenced by the Auschwitz Museum.

Please also note – The Auschwitz Museum requires that all visitors show photo identification prior to entry. Therefore, to book your tickets to Auschwitz, we will need the exact names from everyone in your party as they appear on the identification they will produce on entry to Auschwitz. Failure to produce identification or names of people within the party could potentially lead to those persons not being allowed entry to Auschwitz. We hope you will understand the need for these procedures at the Auschwitz Museum and we ask for your patience so that we can ensure you and your party have the experience you hope for at this most important site of remembrance.

Please note Auschwitz is 330km from Warsaw and can take up to 5 hours to drive. We can arrange a tour to Auschwitz from Warsaw, however the tour will be an overnight stay due to strict European Union Drivers Working Hours Regulations. We can make arrangements for an overnight stay in Oswiecim or perhaps you might consider a stay in Krakow where we can extend your experience with one of many tour options in Krakow before returning to Warsaw. Alternatively, you might consider taking a train to Krakow and beginning your tour to Auschwitz there. Please contact us for details.
