Overview

We suggest you to start this tour at Kazimierz – the former Jewish district – to understand the Jews, their religion, customs and culture and their role in Europe. A visit to Kazimierz presents a unique opportunity to see how the Jewish community was organized and how it coexisted with Catholics for more than 600 years. Our guides will tell you not only about Jews who lived in Krakow, but also about their history in general, which will allow you to understand the tragedy of Holocaust. We will also show you the places that create the special atmosphere of Kazimierz now, and try to explain why Poland without the Jewish minority is a different country. Afterwards, you will visit Auschwitz-Birkenau, the former Nazi concentration camp. Auschwitz concentration camp is situated about 70 km from Krakow – our journey will take us about 1h 15 min. The tour begins with a 17-minutes documentary about the history and the liberation of the camp. Then an expert guide shows you the gas chamber, the crematorium and the exhibition in some of the surviving prison blocks. We continue to Birkenau to see this largest of all Nazi extermination camps. Here we see the entrance gate known as the gate of Death and the wooden barracks.

Very interesting and well guided tour a bit long but worthwhile. More about the occupation of Krakow than Oskar Schindeler, but make time if you can and try to understand how these decent people suffered.

Well worth a visit to remind yourself how cruel and murderous man can be to each other. It beggars belief what the people of Europe went through under Natzi Germany rule.

Great tour, could spend hours walking round and some really good videos and interactive stuff! However I felt there was a lack of information about Schindler himself and the factory. Other than that it was great! Free wifi and also free cloak room!

We were unsure about visiting Auschwitz and although it is a deeply moving and saddening experience, it is well worth seeing if for no other reason but to honour those who perished there. Schindler's factory gave a comprehensive history of the war years 1939-45 so...More

The museum is not just about Schindler but the Second World War. We walked there from the old city and had a guided tour, but this is not really necessary. Everything is signed in English. Great place to find out about the history of Poland.

No trip to Kraków would be complete without a trip to Auschwitz and Schindler's factory. First any tour to Auschwitz is well worth it but I can't recommend a private tour highly enough as they pick you up from you hotel and drop you back...More
