Visit two UNESCO World Heritage Sites on a full-day tour from Krakow to Auschwitz-Birkenau and the Wieliczka Salt Mine, exploring each destination on guided tours. Learn the tragic impact of Poland’s wartime history, then go underground to see caverns, chapels, and statues carved from salt. This 11-hour tour includes pickup and drop-off at centrally-located Krakow hotels, entrance fees, and guided tours, with all transport by Wi-Fi equipped, climate-controlled vehicle.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your Krakow hotel for departure between 830am and 9:30am, then board a Mercedes Benz minivan or minibus for the 70-minute trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Along the way, the short documentary The Liberation of Auschwitz will be screened, including footage by the Soviet soldiers who freed the camp.

Upon arrival at Auschwitz-Birkenau, join a guide for a 3.5-hour guided tour of the camps, now preserved as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll see barracks, train tracks, and long rows of gas chamber chimneys, and learn the story of those who suffered and died in the largest concentration and extermination centers in the Nazi Third Reich.

Following your time at Auschwitz-Birkenau, continue to the Wieliczka Salt Mine, a roughly 1.5-hour drive. Pause for an hour-long lunch break at the mines (a packed lunch can be provided upon request, at additional expense).

Enter the 13th-century, UNESCO-listed salt mine for a 2.5-hour guided tour, touring a landscape carved from salt, with pillars, vaulted ceilings, and sculptures in glistening white. This 11-hour tour concludes with 8pm drop-off at your hotel or at another location in central Krakow.

Highly recommend

We used KrakówDirect.com today and visited Auschwitz and the Salt Mines. It was a very busy day (8:30 pick up and back at 8pm) but I’d highly recommend the tour company for a number of reasons. The cost was very competitive and they were very...More
