Private Jewish Essential Tour Budapest
Following the pick-up from your hotel, the tour will head straight into the magnificent Dohány Street Synagogue, the largest Jewish sacred house in Europe and the center of the Hungarian Jewish community. Following the Synagogue you will take on an extensive tour of the Jewish Museum with an insider guide to explore the past and present of the Hungarian Jewish heritage through a unique collection of art pieces from Hungary and Eastern Europe.
Still not leaving the premises of the great synagogue complex, we will take the time to commemorate the victims of the holocaust at the Martyrs’ Cemetery and the Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Garden with the touching monument of the Tree of Life. As the last stop in the garden, you will be taken to see the stunning Heroes’ Temple and the Jewish Family Research Centre. As the final part of the tour we will head down the depths of the Jewish Quarter with an exterior visit to the beautiful Rumbach Street Synagogue and a trip around the former ghetto that has turned into a cultural hotspot of Budapest.
Join the tour and learn about the Hungarian Jewish culture the most memorable way possible: through its living, breathing tactile history!
