Jewish Grand Tour Budapest
The Expanded Jewish Heritage Tour – 4 hours
The first part of the Grand Tour includes the whole Essential Tour (Madách Square, Rumbach Street Synagogue, Dohány Street Synagogue, Jewish Museum, Martyrs’ Cemetery, Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park, Tree of Life, Heroes’ Temple, Jewish Center).
After a break we continue our walk through the Jewish Quarter, on the streets of the former Ghetto, which hosts synagogues, monuments, kosher restaurants, and kosher shops. While your guide tells you important facts and local stories of this area, you also get basic information about Budapest.
During our journey we visit the Memorial Park dedicated to Carl Lutz, who is also known as „Hungary’s Schindler”, then we pass by the famous Gozsdu Passage. The third station of the Synagogue Triangle is the Kazinczy Street Synagogue (interior visit), which is one of the largest operating orthodox synagogues in Europe, built in art-nouveau style. At the end of the tour, you have a kosher cake in the Jewish quarter.
