If you're interested in taking a historical tour that just involves memorizing dates and facts that you'll forget in no time, then we might not be the right tour for you. At Go Zeppelin Tours, we believe that truly experiencing a new place is just as important as learning about it. Our team of guides are all accredited by the government of Hungary and are passionate about Budapest. We tell the story of the city in a unique way that will make you think about history from a different perspective. Of course, we will give you dates, facts, and tell you about important figures and events, but we'll also talk about politics, art, religion, and some of the most controversial moments in Hungary's history. Our goal is not just to teach you history, but to help you understand it. We know that it's hard to retain all the information from a tour, but we want to make sure you leave with a deep understanding of the city. By the end of the tour, you'll have a real and unique point of view of Budapest, far from the idyllic and fictional image that most tourist guides offer.

Tour description

On March 19, 1944 the German Nazis invaded Hungary ... but, wait a moment, invade? With us you will discover what really happened. We will make a tour of about 2 hours for what was the last ghetto built by the Nazis during the Second World War. If you visit the Jewish quarter on your own you will not see anything of the Jewish ghetto that one day spread through its streets, an authentic concentration camp in the heart of the same city. We will also discover the names of those characters who saved so many lives, their stories, their tricks to deceive the Nazis ... without a doubt our most intense and exciting tour. We are going to completely turn around this neighborhood, now the center of Budapest's nightlife, so you can see it with different eyes.

What you will discover with us on this tour: 

  • Great synagogue in Budapest 
  • Tree of life 
  • Who was Raoul Wallenberg 
  • Who was Ángel Sanz Briz 
  • Quo Status Synagogue 
  • Original ghetto wall 
  • Orthodox synagogue 
  • Szimpla and ruin bars 


-The tour does not include any visits to the interior of the monuments, all the buildings that can be visited require the payment of an entrance and have their own private guides.
