Shuttle bus from Krakow to Auschwitz-Birkenau

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Drive by a comfortable bus from the main bus station in Cracow and be dropped off right next to Auschwitz Memorial Museum.

    The name "Auschwitz" is synonymous with atrocity and secrets clouded by mist. In this somber and eerie place we confront our history and reckon with some of the most difficult lessons of our time. Despite its darkness, Auschwitz is a place that simply must be visited and our day together will give you insight into the way this camp was run, the world of those who lived and died here, and why it is that we must never forget this period of history.

    The museum areas of Auschwitz-Birkenau include approximately 150 building and 300 ruins. You will see the roads, fences, watchtowers and rail ramps coupled with interesting and informative exhibits and documentation.

    Auschwitz is a place that continually reminds us of man's fragility while underscoring the gift of human life. On this day trip from Krakow, discover this legendary site and learn about the main stage for one of the darkest epochs in human history.

    Be clearer about which bus to find and how at the Museum when the whole parking lot is filled with buses from your guides. Apparently we don't aboard the Discover Cracow stickered shuttle and then guides who can't communicate are no help. Emails sent are no help. Tickets have no

    I was solo on this trip, my husband did the salt mines instead. The coach collected us 8 minutes from the Discover Cracow office on the ring road and by a green Park. It dropped us back there seven hours later in the pitch dark, the courier said goodbye and disappeared. I had

    I booked a half day tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau with the bus transfer to the sites. First we were given a big red sticker with a number that we had to wear on our jackets and were told we were not allowed to remove this. Given the destination they should think of some other
