Full Tour Description

Duration: 3,5 hours plus travel time from your accommodation

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 thousand 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 and it hosts synagogues, monuments, kosher restaurants, and shops. We will see the Carl Lutz Memorial and you will walk through the gate of the ghetto on Madach Square. 

We'll also take a break with coffee and cake in a nice kosher Café of the Jewish District.
