We are going to Krakow in July and are planning a day trip to Auschwitz.
We know that after 10am we have to join in on a guided tour but my other half is very interested in WW2 history and will want to stay longer then the allocated 3 hours. Is there a way we could extend our time? I understand also that if we get there before 10am we are free to roam but the only way I can find a way to get there is via the train (but need to walk the 30minutes from the train station). Obviously the train is slow also stopping frequently.
Can we freely depart from the tour group in Auschwitz to look around ourselves, and if so, will we miss out on our Birkenau tour or can we rejoin in on another tour later on?
Thanks to all that reply
