    • Auschwitz II before Auschwitz I

      by janicemam Online Now Jun 7, 2016 at 11:01 PM

      We will be visiting Poland next July and we bought tickets online for Auschwitz for the 3.00 visit (unguided tour). Is it possible to visit Auschwitz II before Auschwitz I? We intend to leave the car in the parking near Auschwitz I. Will there be a bus that goes directly to Auschwitz II and back or you have to enter Auschwitz I before to catch the bus?

    • Best way to see Auschwitz on my own

      by Golpe Online Now Apr 25, 2016 at 7:59 AM

      I will be in Krakow next month and want to visit the Auschwitz complex. I read that you must go around with a local guide or get there early or late. I'm not sure about this and would be grateful for any advice on what are the options to see the camp on my own. I would like to wander around both Auschwitz and Birkenau at my own pace.

      Also, is it better to go there from Krakow by bus or train? I have no desire to go with a tour group from Krakow.

      Thank you

    • Prague to Oswiecim: Any Waiting area at the station?

      by RiteshGarg Online Now Nov 9, 2014 at 12:37 PM

      I am visiting Auschwitz Concentration camp next week. I am planning to catch the night train from Prague to Krakow and get down at Oswiecim instead of going all the way to Krakow and coming back to Auschwitz. I am wondering if this is a good idea to get down at the Oswiecim station at 4:45 am in the morning and wait for the Auschwitz concentration camp to open for visitors. Does the station have a waiting area? Thank you!

    • Local enthusiast and guide

      by AlwaysExploring Online Now Dec 19, 2013 at 1:57 PM

      My wife and I will be visiting in mid-June 2014. We always try to meet locals with a good knowledge of the city who are willing to act as our local "guide" so that we can get a locals perspective rather then a tour book view. We do the same thing for visitors to the San Francisco Bay Area. We feel that we get so much more depth traveling this way.

      Anyone out there interested or know someone who is like-minded?

      Solo or with a guide

      by roamer61 Online Now Aug 10, 2012 at 1:10 PM

      I will be visiting next Spring as part of a wider trip. I am a single person.
      Is it better to join a tour, employ a private guide or go solo?

      I am aware that you must join a group if arriving after 10:00am. And I also know that you can do Birkineau first. But I prefer to go in chronological order and start with Auschwitz I.

    • Taxi from Balice airport to Auschwitz?

      by MatPorter Online Now Mar 3, 2011 at 4:14 AM

      Im in Poland for a day next week & am visiting Auschwitz - i've been given a price of 385 PLN to take me direct from Balice airport to the memorial, wait for 5 hours and take me back for my flight out.

      Does this seem a fair price?

      Time is a factor or I would bus/train it. Also, are there taxis around the site that could take me back? I'm trying to do it as cheap as possible!

      I read its about a 5 mile walk from Auschwitz to Birkenau. Is there anything worth seeing along that walk? any side streets to wander off too, anything like that just to see or is it just one long walk from one camp to the other?

      Would someone be kind enough to give me directions to the Judenrampe Memorial & 'cattle cars'. I know it is situated between Auschwitz camp and Birkenau Camp and directions on how to get to it on foot from either of the two camp entrances would be great.

      Train Station in Osweicim Question.

      by Phantasm Online Now Jul 16, 2004 at 8:50 PM

      Hello! I'm going to Poland next month. I will be going from Krakow to Osweicim to tour the Camp and afterwards going to Warsaw. I'm planning on taking the train and was wondering if there is a place to store luggage at the Osweicim train station. If not, is there another place that I would be able to? It seems rather inappropriate to drag my suitcase there. I was thinking of looking for a hostel in both Krakow and Warsaw when I arrive as my travel plans are still somewhat in flux. Are there any recommended hostels for same day bookings? Are there hostel reservation desks at the main train stations? Does anyone know what the main German border city is into Poland? I'll be taking a train from Berlin into Krakow and using a German Rail Pass and I need to buy a supplemental train ticket for the Poland part. Thanks in advance for any help!

      Thank you all for your advice. My husband and I will be in Poland August 22 through August 25. I am now strongly considering spending one night in Krakow so that we can visit Auschwitz/Oswiecim. It sounds as if it will be worth the trip out there. I think we will plan to rent a car in Warsaw and drive to Auschwitz then stay the night in Krakow. Can anyone recommend recommend affordable but nice accommodations in Krakow? Thank you again!
