This tour visits the Memorial and Museum located at the former Stutthof Concentration Camp including a visit to the camp site and its poignant museum. In the afternoon you enjoy lunch and a walking tour of Gdansk's Old Town.
After meeting your guide you immediately depart for the town of Sztutowo where the Stutthof concentration camp is located. This was the first Nazi camp built outside of Germany and was the last camp liberated by Allied forces. Originally a small prison for Poles and P.O.W.'s, the camp would become the site for some of the worst atrocities of the War.
Between 1939 and 1945, 127,000 prisoners were officially registered in the camp, but those who were immediately singled out for execution were not registered at all, so there is no way of knowing the exact number or people brought to Stutthof.
Finally liberated on May 9, 1945 by the Soviet Army, the camp was shut down and its prisoners were released. People from 26 different nations had been kept there, a testament to the scale of the Nazi war effort.
Today a visit to the camp site and its museum takes about 2 hours. The museum shows a variety of short films and also contains artifacts such as jewelry, art work and clothing which was found after the liberation.
After this sobering visit, you return Gdansk where you have free time for lunch (meal not included) before enjoying an Old Town walking tour.
This afternoon you stroll along the main thoroughfare called Dluga Street and see the Old Town Hall, the High Gate, the Torture House Prison Tower, the Golden Gate, Artus Hall Court, Neptune fountain, and St. Mary's Church.
At the end of the tour you are driven back to the pier. Mobility
