Wroclaw to Auschwitz

by bonnielassie

A friend to staying a few days in Wroclaw and has asked me if you can go to Auschwitz for a day trip, I went to Auschwitz from Krakow when I was in Poland. Can you do a day trip? and how long would it take?

Thanks in advance

RE: Wroclaw to Auschwitz

by MarekW

Hi
Trip from Wroclaw to Oswiecim (aka Auschwitz) will take approximately 6 hours with multiple train changes, by the time she gets there museum might be closed. Check www.db.de for train schedule. Another solution I would recommend would be going to Krakow day before and go on the trip next day.
Regards
Marek

Thanks for that, I did say to her that I thought the journey for the day to Auschwitz would be too long.

Can you suggest any other trips she could do from Wroclaw, we went in the summer but we had the car so we spent a couple of days in Wroclaw just seeing Wroclaw.

Thanks

Linda

There is Sobotka, 35 km south, which is the access to the Mt. Sleza Park. There are numerous ancient pagan statues scattered around. The slopes are not large, providing for a pleasant hike, with beautiful scenery. Frequent bus service.

Hi!

To Oswiecim/Auschwitz you can go via Katowice.

Yes, go better to some place near Wroclaw. For example Ksiaz castle, Walbrzych town, Swidnica town (UNESCO site)

Hope to see your travel pages on virtualtourist:)

Dont go to Walbrzych!Maybe just to see the Ksiaz Castle, but the town is awfull, mining town and mines bunkrupted after 1989.Try Karpacz, beautiful small town in mauntains(highest peak 4800feet), about 2 hours by bus from Wroclaw and its really worth seeing.

Travel Tips for Wroclaw

The roots of the city

by magor65

"After the Second World War Wroclaw was one of the most gravely destroyed cities in Europe. The destruction (...) reached 50 - 60% of the city structure.
Fortress Breslau was one of the city-fortresses that defended themselves the longest - it surrendered 4 days after Berlin which capitulated on May 2. (...) An eye-witness to the planned city destruction confirms: the command of the fortress methodically carried out the order to leave nothing behind but 'the scorched earth' ".

from K. Jonca, A. Kamienny "The Fall of Fortress Breslau"

The end of the war didn't mean the end of the destruction. Wroclaw was not on the 'priority list' as for the reconstruction. In fact some buildings were pulled down to provide material for the reconstruction of Warsaw.

My Last Photo...

by coceng

These are the rest of the photos taken by me in Wroclaw. Accompanied by a friend, we went to this amazingly beautiful city in The Lower Silesia.
This city lieson the Odra River; The 4th Poland's largest city.

This was my last photo in Wroclaw, my own self ! Asked Adam to take this photo for the memory being in one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in my life !
Dunno why I was grudging there, maybe too tired...bushed ! Maybe Adam took a candid photo on me !We then continued to Legnica, Adam's hometown !

Arboretum w Wojsławicach

by dutchboycalledjan

At the university hortus (OGRÓD BOTANICZNY) I found this poster pointing to the arboretum Wojsławicach (yeah). I went there by car and it was very interesting, like the hortus. I wrote more about it on an other page (Wojewodztwo Dolnoslaskie - thank you ctrl+c).

Best-known shopping place in Wroclaw

by AgnusRafferty about Galeria Dominikanska (Dominican Gallery)

Opened in 2001, Galeria Dominikanska has been the pride for the city - the first "western-style" indoor shopping mall. Today it is one of many such establishments in Wroclaw, but still best known. It has superb siting, just few minutes walk from Old Market square, so it is natural choice for many tourists. Inside, on 3 shopping levels and over 30,000 square meters, you can find 100 shops. Galeria Dominikanska has its own car park (surcharge) for over 900 vehicles (gate from Blogoslawionego Czeslawa street). Mall is open Mon-Sat 9.30 AM till 9.00 PM, Sun 10.00 AM till 8.00 PM.

Tram

by Ben-UK

Wroclaw has an extensive tram system - buy a ticket from a machine, kiosk, or small shops which usually have a sign saying 'Ruch' or 'Bilety' -- remember to cancel your ticket in the machine inside the tram as soon as you get on
