At the dawn of the 20th century, Berlin had the largest Jewish population of any city in the world. One of the most positive developments since German reunification in 1989 has been the resurgence of Jewish life in the city. Synagogues are reopening, Israeli tourists are second only to Americans among non-European visitors to the city, and in September the “Jüdische Kulturtage” (Jewish culture days) celebrates its 25th year with a full program of concerts, exhibitions and other events.

A logical starting point for your exploration of Jewish Berlin is the Jewish Museum, housed in an elegant 18th century building with a spectacular annex designed by Daniel Libeskind, where jagged lines and gaping voids represent the savagery and devastation of the Holocaust.
