Easy to get to (23 bus or 156 trolleybus) from town centre. Free entry. Long walk (perhaps 4-7km) if you do the whole site - allow 2-4 hours. Most of the site is now empty grassed areas, but the remaining sheds (a few dozen) give...More

There is no need to explain why every decent human person must see what was the toll of the Nazi regime. Majdanek is of of those "death factories" built by the Germans. Shocking but unavoidable

Entry by a new visitor centre informing how and why it existed. Be prepared for lots of walking, the site is very big. There are interesting information boards describing what your looking at. If your visiting Lublin then it's a short bus ride out to...More

In spite of the sad background it is really worth to visit the Majdanek concentration camp. It is a huge area so expect to spend up to 3 hours at the place. The Camp was only partly destroyed after the germans left it so you...More

I forgot to add.... get off at the second Majdanek stop. There are two. The second one puts you at the entrance. When you get off the bus, look across the street slightly to your right and you will see the return bus stop... More
