Truly emotional experience. I have read many books and seen plenty movies/documentaries about Auschwitz but its completely different when standing there seeing everything with your own eyes. I recommend to arrive at the parking place quite in advance, as the parking lot is full and...More

This place needs no explanation as to what it was or what happened here.

Yes you can but its more difficult than it used to be, firstly you have to go the website and choose the day you want to visit, then book your places, you must then be there before 10:00 or after 16:00, if you wish you can visit Birknhau first as theres no security control and do Auschwitz 1 after 16:00, doing it by yourself is much more rewarding believe me ive done both options, and with a guide we saw very little of Birkenhau,.
