We think the best time for a pick up is 830 am. Before 10 o clock we are in Oswiecim city. Here you can decide if you want to take a tour with or without the guide. The standard guided tour takes 3h. In most of the cases if you walk on your own it takes around 1 h 15 min in birkenau and 2 hours in Auschwitz. Auschwitz - work camp is a museum camp now, It has been adjusted to house exhibitions, proofs etc. Birkenau - the death camp is in a shape Nazis left it. In Auschwitz there is five blocks that you can't miss. These are : 4,5,6,7,11 another thing is that you need to see the gas chamber and the gallows where Rudolf Hoss was hanged for his war crimes.
