Jewish heritage

Our company was created in 1995 and since then we are trying to introduce our visitors to the Hungarian and Jewish culture in our country. Our English/ German speaking guides are well trained, and have the necessary qualification to help you understand the Jewish past and present in Hungary and Budapest. Our tours are in English language, and we aim to keep our sightseeing tours with small groups of people. To best fit your needs, we prepared three types of heritage tours


Essential Tour (2,5 hours)

The Basic Jewish Heritage Tour

Those who are short of time can take our 2,5 hour Jewish Heritage Essential Tour. With the help of our English/German speaking guides you will be acquainted with the most important chapters of the history and culture of the Hungarian Jewry.

Your guide will show you the most important chapters of the Hungarian Jewish history and the Elizabethtown. Meanwhile we will walk through the streets of the so-called Jewish Quarter in Pest. We are going to explore the „status quo ante” Rumbach Street Synagogue (outside visit) and as the highlight of the tour, we will visit the Dohany Street Synagogue (interior visit), which is the largest in Europe and the second largest synagogue in the world. You will also get a local guided tour in the Jewish Museum, where you get acquainted with the Hungarian Jewish heritage trough a unique collection of art pieces from Hungary and Eastern Europe, and the rich tradition of Judaism, its holidays and everyday life. A separate room commemorates the Hungarian Holocaust. Beside these we will visit the Martyrs’ Cemetery, the Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park with the Tree of Life and the Heroes' Temple (outside visit). After the tour it is possible to visit the Jewish Quarter Exhibition in the Goldmark Hall and the Family Research Center.
