How to buy tickets for the Auschwitz concentration camp?
When we visited the Auschwitz concentration camp, we didn’t buy the tickets before going. We did the Spanish tour and we thought it was not worth, since we were going a few days after Easter week, therefore there was not going to be many tourists.We bought the tickets directly in the concentration camp. Of course, before going we checked the timetables for the spanish to not be late. I think nowadays that’s not an option anymore, the demand for this tickets has grown a lot and sometimes, even with a lot of time ahead they are sold out.
Guided tours gave us some headphones, in case the guide moves away you don’t miss anything. The guided visit is about 4 hours approximately. When we did it, it was during the lunchtime, so it’s better to bring some snacks.
Is it necessary to book the guided tour of the Auschwitz concentration camp online? Where?
Although we did not see the need, as we already said now it’s not an option anymore to buy the tickets there. With the help of Amparo and Miguel, two readers who contacted us to help them on their trip, we now know how to make the reservation.
To reserve the tickets to the Auschwitz concentration camp you have to enter the official website of the concentration camp.
We are going to explain you step by step so you can book without any problems!
In the first step you have to choose what type of ticket you want. You will have to take an individual entrance (Visit for individuals).

Alternatives to the official guided tour
After writing this post we’ve been receiving messages and comments that in peak season there are no tickets for the concentration camp in the official website. As we did with the official guide, we do not know what the private operators will be like, but if you do not have another one here we leave you with a tour to Auschwitz that includes the transfer to the concentration camp from Krakow, and also has very good ratings.
