World War II History Tours in Krakow

Krakow may be Poland’s cultural capital, but the city also harbors a dark past. Occupied by the Nazis in World War II, Krakow still shows traces of its history today. Learn about the city’s past with a tour of its WWII sites—here are your options.

City Tours

Discover Krakow's Jewish heritage and learn about the city during WWII on a walking, biking, or Segway tour of Kazimierz, Krakow's Jewish quarter, and the old Jewish ghetto in Podgorze. Along the way, see the original WWII Ghetto wall and Ghetto Heroes Square; take a tour of Oskar Schindler's Enamel Factory, where many Jewish lives were saved during the war; and visit filming locations from Steven Spielberg's award-winning movie,Schindler's List. Tours typically last between 3 and 5 hours, while guided tours of Schindler's Factory are 90 minutes long.

Day Trips

About a 1.5-hour drive from Krakow is one of the most notorious WWII sites in Europe—the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, which is now preserved as a museum and memorial. Most day tours from Krakow last least 6 hours and include hotel pickup, round-trip transport, and a guided tour of the camp that includes stops at the Holocaust exhibitions and the prisoner barracks.
