day trip to Wygielzow

I am interested in going to the ethnographic museum in Wygeilzow and was hoping to go independent of a tour company. How would I best achieve this- by bus or train? Is the walking distance from the bus station/stop far from the museum? I would plan to spend a full day there, so I'm not in a hurry. Any advice?

Thanks

Hi,

I guess you start from Kraków... You have two options:

1. Take the bus from Kraków to Oświęcim via Wygiełzów. For an overview of the timetable check here: http://en.e-podroznik.pl/, there are a few.

2. Take the train from Kraków to Chrzanów, timetable here: http://www.rozklad-pkp.pl, and then the taxi. I remember there used to be buses going from Chrzanów somewhere via Wygiełzów, so this might be an alternative, if they still operate (not sure about it). The train for sure may be a good alternative for your return trip, if the bus times are not convenient.

It's not far from the bus stop to the park - one stop is even across the fence - but I am not sure if anything stops there. The other is some 500 m away.

To be 100% sure about the options I'd check the timetable of the buses departing from Kraków, it's right by the main railway station.

One more hint, I've just found the phone number to the local tourist information:

Powiatowe Centrum Informacji Turystycznej

Address: Lipowiecka 3,

Phone: 00 48 32 210 93 13

Not sure if they speak English, but they will help when you are in doubt.
