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?
You only have to buy one ticket and it normally good for Auschwitz and Birkenau. You can visit Auschwitz I before II whatever you like
There is a shuttle bus between the two camps ( every 15 to 30 mn in july) so you can leave your car at any of the car parks. If you want to drive, both camps have car parks (pay-for)
There is a warning on the website about important roadworks in the area, so be prepared, time-wise.
Thank you. Does the bus depart from the main entrance? With regards Auschwitz camps one can enter and exit from the same side from near the bus stops?
