    It's possible by train. It'll take 1h and 30min. to get from Krakow Glowny to Oswiciem. Check timetables at However I have no clue how far the station is from the camp. We did it last year with a sightseeing company ( But if we look back at it, the only comfort was that the transport (starting at our hotel) and entrance were arranged. We also had an English speaking guide but it was so crowded in the camp that our guide skipped a few very important places. We are going to see camp again (don't know yet when) but only with the 2 of us, so we can see also the places our guide necessarely skipped.
