    Great and unique experience, don’t miss it while visiting Lithuania. Andreas was a wonderful guide and driver.

    It is an amazing unique sight and well worth it if you have the time. You can bring (or buy when you’re there) your own cross to put there, if you wish. It’s a long drive and you’re there for about an hour - there was one stop off to see some cross tributes including one to Ronald Reagan but no toilets (except nature which I didn’t fancy). There are toilets at The Hill of Crosses but let the driver/guide know if you might need the loo beforehand. We stopped at a lovely place for lunch but were a little rushed so didn’t really have time to enjoy the grounds. Pick up is not at your hotel unless it’s a private tour. All in all we were really glad we went. The guide was friendly and very informative about Lithuania’s road to independence.

    Ganz sicher verkörpert sich in diesem Ensemble eine wichtige Komponente eines Landes, das über Jahrhunderte hinweg ein Ort war, an welchem der Tod eine ständige und unmittelbare Begleiterscheinung für die Lebenden war. Ich hatte das Gelände vor etwa 25 Jahren besucht und war sehr beeindruckt. Bei meinem kürzlichen Besuch (Aug. 22) konnte ich leider nicht an meine damals tief betroffene Gefühlslage anknüpfen. Der Grund: Der Hauch von Transzendenz, der damals über diesem Gelände lag war auch eine Folge der damals nur ganz wenigen Menschen, die - erkennbar – hier her gekommen waren um dem tieferen Sinn dieser Stätte Rechnung zu tragen. Obwohl ich den Ort schon sehr früh am Vormittag aufsuchte, traf ich bereits auf sehr viele Anwesenden, die bemüht waren mit ihren Handys schöne Motive zu finden. Auch Selfies mit einem der Kreuze waren keine Seltenheit. Zweifellos: wer an Vordergründigem interessiert ist, der findet hier ein ideales Objekt. Zahl und Gestaltung der Exponate sind nämlich höchst beeindruckend. Mir ist nichts Vergleichbares bekannt. Ein Tip: Wenn man kommt, sollte man in sich gehen, und sich bemühen, eine dem Ort würdige Einstellung zu finden. Ob dies in einer Gruppe möglich ist, bezweifele ich allerdings stark.

    excellent trip well worth the money ! jurate was the guide she was brilliant very very friendly and informative on the drive there and back learnt loads about lithuania from her

    Fantastic experience of the full-day tour to The Hill of Crosses from Vilnius! It was a small group of only three people and our guide Jurate was so lovely, she was passionate about sharing Lithuanian history and was also flexible with adapting the tour to us. I would highly recommend if you have the time to spare- the entire tour took 9 hours and around 5-6 hours of that was spent driving. For me it was absolutely worth it because the experience was so unique and Jurate was such a fantastic guide.

    Great conversation with our guide. Learned a lot about the history of the area, and many current day topics on Lithuania. Would highly recommend a guided tour like this, especially if you want more history than is on the plaque. Always impressed at the guides and their language abilities!
