Book a morning or afternoon tour and meet your historian guide and group of six or fewer on Andrassy Avenue in central Budapest.

Set off along this grand avenue, where many Jewish people settled in the early 1800s. Then, turn into the side streets of the 7th District, the former Jewish Quarter, a neighborhood that roughly traces the boundaries of the WWII Jewish Ghetto.

Pass silverware shops, prayer houses, and kosher restaurants as your guide tells of the area’s history and vibrant, present-day Orthodox community.

As you explore, stop to see several synagogues. Head inside the Rumbach Street Synagogue, designed by Viennese architect Otto Wagner in 1872, and admire its decorative Moorish-style interior.

Visit the Dohány Street Synagogue, also called the Great Synagogue, and a cornerstone of the district. Admire its brick-built towers topped with onion-shaped domes and beautiful, 3000-seater interior.

See a ritual mikveh bathhouse, call at kosher food shops to sample Jewish cuisine, and along the way, uncover the area’s dark WWII history. View remnants of the ghetto wall and Yellow-Star houses — where Jewish people were forcibly confined — and learn about the deportations that took place here in 1944.

After three hours, your tour finishes in central Budapest.
