School Trips - Krakow and Auschwitz

We have put COVID 19 measures in place for the health and safety of our groups and are also offering increased flexibility for deposits, cancellations and postponements. Check out our website for more details.

At Inspired Travel we aim to offer well-designed and inspiring learning experiences for our groups, be they large or small in number.

As former teachers who have been group leaders ourselves, we have many years of experience in organising study tours so that you can be assured that whether it is Geography, History, Language, Science or Food Technology, the destinations are tried, tested and tweaked!

Our itineraries are bespoke and tailored to an individual group; nothing is "off the shelf" although some follow common themes. As such your itinerary is as individual to you as it is to us and we are happy to try to accommodate all requirements.

Why should you consider Inspired Travel for School Trips and Educational Visits?

trip icon

With its beautiful Old Town and largest medieval market square in Europe, Krakow has numerous medieval buildings and monuments, the Royal Castle, narrow winding streets and church spires. Beyond the Old Town there is plenty to attract, the Kazimerz District - the former Jewish Quarter, Schindlers' Factory which featured in the film Schindler's List.

For any student visit to this part of Europe a thought-provoking visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps for a guided tour is a must. It is also possible to visit the popular Wieliczka Salt Mines which date back to the Middle Ages and contributed to the prosperity of the city.
