Full-Day Tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau and Wieliczka Salt Mine from Krakow
From US$75.56

Travel between two of Krakow’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites with ease during a day trip to  Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum and the Wieliczka Salt Mine. As well as convenient hotel pickup and drop-off, you’ll get skip-the-line entry to both landmarks. A guided tour reveals information you may otherwise miss if you visit these sights on your own.

What to Expect

Following pickup from your Krakow hotel in the morning, you’ll travel to Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, a UNESCO-listed former Nazi concentration camp. (The drive is about 1.5 hours.) A timed ticket allows you to bypass long lines outside of the complex and start your guided tour immediately.

After two hours visiting the former SS administrative center and Holocaust memorial, you’ll have a break to purchase lunch.

The next stop is the  Wieliczka Salt Mine, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you’ll descend into the tunnels of one of the world’s oldest salt mines. During a 3-hour tour, you'll see saline lakes and sculptures carved from salt before returning to the surface via an elevator. The tour concludes with hotel drop-off in Krakow.

There are accessible parts to both the mine and auschwitz but a fair amount of it isn't. Such as steps up to individual buildings, and stairs to first floors and basements etc. Both involve a lot of walking if you want to... More
