im going inter-railing this summer with a group of friends and we want to find out how we can travel from krakow to auschwitz?
You might want to check out the Krakow forum for info.
Here's a link:
I also found this,it has some info on getting to Oswiecim (Polish for Auschwitz) from Krakow: www.trippy.com/vt/3/f...
I hope this helps! Save time for sightseeing in Krakow! It is an absolutely beautiful town!
It's possible by train. It'll take 1h and 30min. to get from Krakow Glowny to Oswiciem. Check timetables at www.PKP.com. However I have no clue how far the station is from the camp. We did it last year with a sightseeing company (www.Krakow-tours.pl). But if we look back at it, the only comfort was that the transport (starting at our hotel) and entrance were arranged. We also had an English speaking guide but it was so crowded in the camp that our guide skipped a few very important places. We are going to see camp again (don't know yet when) but only with the 2 of us, so we can see also the places our guide necessarely skipped.
