Comment on Visit Auschwitz – Birkenau concentration camp and value your freedom more than ever by Esmeralda.
I recommened the 8 hr. tour booked direct through the official Auschwitz website. I took a bus from Krakow station in the early morning which drops you in front of the main entrance of Auschwitz 1. I was there even longer: from the time it opened till it closed in the evening. I did not see everything there was to see ….
In Krakow you can also visit the headquarters of the Gestapo. Also worth a visite.
