The Basics

A sightseeing tour of Krakow isn’t complete without a visit to the former Jewish district, and the best way to explore Kazimierz is on foot. Learn more about Krakow’s Jewish history and visit filming locations from Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning Schindler's List on a guided walking tour, join a food tasting tour and sample the quarter’s famous street food, or explore by Segway, bike, or in a classic Trabant car.

For a more personalized experience, opt for a small-group or private tour, visit independently as part of a hop-on hop-off bus tour, or choose a tour that includes other attractions, such as Wawel Hill, Wieliczka Salt Mine, or Oskar Schindler’s Factory.

Krakow Jewish Quarter Guided Walking Tour
It was a very strange time in Krakow as just before the borders closed and unfortunately we couldn’t actually go inside Schindlers factory. Despite that, we had a very informative walk and our guide (Jack?) was brilliant, very knowledgeable and a good story teller. I was with my sister and my 2 brothers and we unanimously agreed it was a very enjoyable experience and we highly recommend. Lots of walking but well worth it.

2 Hour Private Krakow Jewish Quarter and Former Ghetto Tour
Absolutely loved this tour with Seweryn of the Jewish quarter and ghetto area. He was so informative and we saw many things that we definitely would have missed if we had just been wandering around ourselves...such a wealth of knowledge. If you only do one tour in Krakow make sure you choose this guy we cant recommend him highly enough! Dave & Karen.

Great experience, a good way to explore the local culture trough @taste@. It’s not kosher food, but polish local food in the “Jewish” quarter: just to be precise. It was a beautiful experience
