Auschwitz is a must-see when you visit Krakow. There are several tour operators that offer half-day trips from Krakow for about €32. I used Crakow tours. My only complaint about the tour was that we very rushed. If I had to do it again, I would take a full day tour. Out tour included a comfortable bus ride from Krakow, and an English speaking guide that took us through both camps (Auschwitz and Auschwitz II - Birkenau). From the rooms piled with shoes, suitcases, and even human hair at Auschwitz to the quiet and expansive Birkenau, this trip helped put a reality to all of the documentaries and films you will see over your lifetime on the holocaust.
