What You Can Expect
Travel first to the Dohány Street Synagogue, the largest synagogue in Europe and the third-largest in the world. You’ll have the opportunity to peruse Hungarian and Eastern European works of art at the Jewish Museum (admission included) at your own pace. Then your guide will take you to the Holocaust Cemetery, where many were buried during the Second World War.
The next stop on your walking tour will be Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park, which honors Wallenberg and others who protected many of Budapest's Jewish community from deportation during WWII. Here you will find the Tree of Life, a sculpture commemorating the 5,000 victims of the Holocaust buried nearby. Afterward you’ll make your way to Heroes’ Temple, memorializing those who gave their lives during the First World War.
You’ll then walk to the Jewish Quarter to visit the Carl Lutz Memorial, a tribute to the man credited with saving thousands of Jewish lives during the Holocaust. You’ll also explore the interior of the orthodox Kazinczy Street Synagogue and walk through the beautifully restored Gozsdu Courtyard, now filled with shops and restaurants that are popular with locals and visitors alike.
Your tour will end here, and recommendations will be provided by your guide so that you can keep exploring on your own.
Informative and moving. The synagogue was interesting and the museum was well done. Our guide, Lazlo, was knowledgable and entertaining, and we learned a lot about the area. Glad we did it.
Our guide was wonderful. He showed us the highlights of the Jewish area, but also some other interesting places to see in Budapest. He was knowledgeable and informative. I would recommend this tour to anyone going to Budapest.
Tamas was a superb guide-- enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining. He provided us with an excellent overview of the city as well as the Jewish quarter. He helped us find a great restaurant for lunch and his love for his city and his ability to convey it were so admirable.
Thomas was fantastic and my 16 year old son really connected with him. Very helpful with other information as well. Would totally do it again.
Wonderful private tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable and it was a delight to have her total attention since we had such a small group on this tour. We learned so much about the synagogues and the history of the Jewish people in Budapest.
