Full Tour Description

Jewish Budapest ToursDuration: 3.5 - 4 hours
Jewish cultural heritage in Budapest

Budapest has the biggest Jewish community in Central Eastern Europe, with an active religious, artistic and historical heritage. Through the centuries, Hungarian and Jewish history has been so entwined that it is almost inseparable. Jews played and play an important role in the country's economic, cultural and political life.

We visit the Synagogue triangle, which shows different views of Jewry in Budapest. The tour includes an interior visit to the Dohány Street Synagogue, which is the largest in Europe and a local guided tour in the Jewish Museum, which has an important and unique collection of art pieces from Hungary and Eastern Europe. You will see The Martyrs' Cemetery where thousands were buried, who were killed during the WWII. Our next stop will be the Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park with the Tree of Life which was created to remind us of those who perished in the Holocaust. We pass by the Heroes' Temple, built in memory of the Jewish soldiers who gave their lives for Austria-Hungary during WWI.

To understand the past and the present of the Budapest Jewish culture, we continue our walk through the Jewish Quarter, which was used as a ghetto during the WWII and today hosts synagogues, monuments, kosher restaurants, and kosher shops. After a few minutes, we'll arrive at a memorial park dedicated to Carl Lutz, "Hungary's Schindler". Then we will walk along Rumbach Street, where we will stop by the Rumbach Synagogue and by an another historically important place for the Hungarian Jewry, Madách Square. After a short walk trough the famous Gozsdu Passage we arrive at the center of the Orthodox Jewish community in Budapest, where we visit the interior of the Kazinczy Street Synagogue. After our tour, we will invite you to have a cake in the Glatt Kosher Fröhlich Confectionery.
