"Weather Can Be Extreme" Oswiecim Packing List Tip by DrexlUK

Oswiecim What to Pack: 4 reviews and 2 photos

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The weather in Poland can be very harsh in the Winter months. I last visited in November and it was bitter cold. Wrap up warm and pack gloves, a hat and waterproof shoes.

Miscellaneous: Birkenau is a vast site and when covered with snow quite hard to walk on, especially if you venture away from the main paths. For less sure-footed visitors it may be worth carrying a whistle and/or a mobile phone incase of difficulties. The sunglare from the snow can be quite strong as well so take a pair of sunglasses.
