Full description

Your driver will meet you at your hotel and drive first to Project Riese which takes around 1.5 hours. It is a very nice ride through mountains and countryside. 

Once you arrive, explore the Project Riese site. Learn how Project Riese was the codename for an impressive construction initiated by Nazi Germany between 1943 and 1945, consisting of seven underground structures located in the Owl Mountains and Książ Castle. Explore this extraordinary network of underground caverns, all in different states of completion. See the Osówka site which is called the Underground City. Then you can pause for lunch, or your driver can take you straight to the Gross-Rosen concentration camp, a German network of Nazi concentration camps built and operated during World War II. The main camp was located in the German village of Gross-Rosen. At its peak in 1944, the Gross-Rosen complex had up to 100 sub-camps located in eastern Germany, Czechoslovakia, and on the territory of occupied Poland. The population of all Gross-Rosen camps at that time accounted for some 11% of the total number of inmates incarcerated in the Nazi concentration camp system. 

In the museum you will watch a short film about the camp and then you will have up to 2 hour to see the indoor and outdoor exhibition before your driver takes you back to your hotel in Wroclaw.
