This tour was created for those, who would like to get an overview of the past and present of Hungarian Jewry’s and would like to understand the differences between our main religious wings. With the help of our English/German speaking guides you will be acquainted with the most important chapters of the history and culture of the Hungarian Jewry.

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 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. We will arrive for a few minutes from the main synagogue to our second Memorial Park, which is dedicated to Carl Lutz, „Hungary’s Schindler”. Then we will walk along the 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 to 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. Another option is, to have 10% discount in the glatt kosher Carmel restaurant.
