Full Tour Description

Duration: 4 hours

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

The tour includes: an interior visit to the Dohány Street Synagogue, which is the largest in Europe, a ticket to the Jewish Museum, which has an important and unique collection of art pieces from Hungary and Eastern Europe; a visit to the Holocaust Cemetery where thousands were buried during the ghetto times; and the Raul Wallenberg Memorial Park with the Tree of Life which was created to remind us of those who perished in the war. We also pass by the Heroes Temple, which was built in memory of those who gave their lives during WWII.

Then - to understand the present - we continue our walk to the newly rejuvenated Jewish Quarter, which was used as a ghetto during the WWII. It hosts synagogues, monuments, kosher restaurants, and shops. We'll also see the Carl Lutz Memorial and you'll get a chance to walk through the gate of the ghetto on Madach Square. We use public transportation to reach the concluding stop of our tour:  the moving memorial of the Shoes on the Danube Bank. The sixty pairs of shoes commemorates the victims shot into the Danube during WWI.
