View the ‘Miracle of Rosenstrasse’ memorial on Rosenstrasse: a statue dedicated to a brave protest by non-Jewish women against the Nazis’ detainment of their Jewish husbands in 1943.

Dive into the Hackescher Markt, part of Berlin’s original Jewish quarter, and see the remnants of the first Jewish cemetery. Ask any questions you wish about Berlin’s Jewish past, and view the site of the Old Synagogue. Then, admire the New Synagogue, a magnificent, domed building restored to its former glory by restoration during the 1980s.

Visit Heckmann Höffe, a courtyard complex and former Jewish residential area, and pass Clärchen's Ballhaus, a now-restored ballroom that was a center of Berlin nightlife in the 1920s.

Lastly, explore Dead Chicken Alley, a passageway famous for its street art and Jewish history. Admire the murals and hear about Otto Weidt, whose broom-making workship here helped protect Jewish workers during the 1940s.

Your tour then concludes back at the starting point.
