What makes this tour special

Delve into Hungary's Jewish history in Budapest's Seventh District. On your private walking tour, you will:


Though small in size, the 7th District currently has Budapest’s highest population density, leading the streets a buzzing ambience, day or night. Plenty of historical remains, a cemetery, a memorial garden and a museum provide a poignant narrative on the Holocaust and the former Budapest Ghetto. 

As Central Europe’s largest Jewish community, Budapest is home to around 90,000 Jews, of which ten thousand are believed to be Holocaust survivors. Since the fall of communism, the city has seen a revival of Jewish religious life in the city. Shops and businesses reopened and around 20 synagogues are now found throughout the city, representing a variety of movements including Orthodox, Chabad Lubavitch, Neolog and Liberal. Budapest also boasts many Jewish schools, cultural centres, monuments, historical sites, kosher restaurants, ritual baths, kosher butcheries, bakeries, and even a matza factory. Several museums are dedicated to Jewish interest. 

On this fascinating tour of Budapest’s Jewish Quarter, you will discover the Jewish Heritage of the 7th District with a knowledgeable local guide. Hear centuries-old tales of Jewish history and gain first-hand insight into Jewish culture past and present. Discover Dohany Synagogue, the largest in Europe - with a capacity for over 3,000 people, visit a memorial to heroic Jewish soldiers who fought in WWI. Your tour of Budapest’s Jewish Culture will take you to the “Weeping Willow” memorial, inscribed with the names of over 400,000 Jews killed in the Holocaust. You will also see a bronze statue of Raoul Wallenberg, a Swedish diplomat credited with saving tens of thousands of Jewish lives in Budapest. 

Learn about the lives of the Jewish community under Soviet rule when Budapest became the only Soviet satellite country where an operational Rabbinical Seminary continued to exist. Learn about the beautiful Rumbach Synagogue, the Orthodox community within the Jewish Quarter and the story of Carl Lutz Memorial.
