Tour description

The Jewish Quarter of Budapest is a really exciting part of the city. Nowadays, this is the center of nightlife, where the ruin bars are located, where you can find the best restaurants, bars, clubs. But did you know Budapest has the largest Jewish community in Central Europe, and here we have a Synagogue Triangle which means we have 3 large Synagogues within a walking distance from each other? Did you know that you can find the largest Synagogue of Europe (or the second-largest Synagogue of the world) in Budapest? During this tour, we show you the famous Dohány street Synagogue as well.

The Jewish Quarter was the place where Budapest had the ghetto during the World War II, and during this tour we show you the memorials, the Synagogues and you can learn a lot about the history of the Hungarian Jewish Community, you can get acquainted with the role of Hungary during the first and the second world war.

I really enjoyed the opportunity to get a clearer picture of Jewish history in Budapest. I enjoyed Ander’s seriousness. He was very thorough, Afterwards you understand why and how Budapest is like it is.

Tour war sehr gut organisiert, viele Erklärungen zu den Naziverbrechen, zum Judentum und den Synagogen. Manchmal waren es zuviele Informationen zu schnell sodass wir nicht ganz folgen konnten. Das lag aber eher daran, dass Englisch nicht unsere Muttersprache ist.
