If you come to Kraków for a few days only, you certainly want to see as much as possible. However, you can’t always get to know the history of a place in a hurry. For those who are interested in the history of the World War II, or would like to enhance their knowledge about the Holocaust, we have a special offer to visit the Birkenau Camp and the Schindler’s Factory within one day.
The tour begins at the Oskar Schindler’s Factory on 4 Lipowa Street. Housed in the authentic Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory, the Museum showcases the history of wartime events that took place in the city and the tragic fate of its inhabitants, which is shown in Steven Spielberg’s famous production « Schindler’s List ».
Next, an air-conditioned bus will take you to the Birkenau Camp, a place of mass extermination and the largest Nazi extermination camp.
During your trip, you will have the opportunity to watch a relevant documentary and receive an informational brochure along with a map. You will also get a lunchbox.

Risking his own life, Oskar Schindler saved hundreds of Kraków residents – mainly of Jewish origin. While visiting the exhibition, tourists learn not only about the moving story of the owner of the Enamel Factory, but can also see what everyday life in occupied Kraków looked like. Authentic objects, a pre-war tram, cobbled streets, and a reconstruction of a Jewish flat are just some of the elements of the fascinating exposition that is enjoyed every year by thousands of tourists from around the world.
The Birkenau Camp was a German Nazi Concentration Camp. It operated in the years 1941–1945 and quickly became a place of mass extermination and the largest Nazi Camp. In Birkenau most of the Nazi victims were killed – that’s over 1.1 million people. 90% of the victims were Jewish people, living in the occupied territories of European countries. Most prisoners of the Camp lost their lives in specially designed gas chambers, the others were victims of bestial treatment, medical experiments and inhumane living conditions prevailing in the Camp. A visit to the Birkenau Museum makes it possible to get to know the dreadful fate of the victims and to deepen the knowledge about what the Holocaust was.
