Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camps

This is a more sobering sight for visiting tourists, but almost essential for any visit to Krakow.

Most travel agents organise day excursions to the camp. The Museum is about 2 km from the train station Oświęcim, and can be reached from there by local buses.
