Discover one of the most popular areas of inner Pest with this approximately two and a half hour tour of Budapest's Jewish Quarter . Join this walking tour in groups of about 35 people and visit the Great Synagogue of Budapest. With a professional guide you will walk through the streets of the old ghetto, which is home to synagogues and historical monuments in tribute to the Holocaust and its heroes.

This tour of Budapest's Jewish Quarter will begin with a guided visit to the area's iconic landmark, the Great Synagogue of Budapest . See the exterior of this impressive synagogue and pass under its two imposing ornate domes. Admire its beautiful interior, from its Moorish arches and geometric frescoes to the Holocaust memorials.

During your guided tour of the Dohány Street Synagogue, you will visit the Raoul Wallenberg Holocaust Memorial Park . Located just behind the temple you will see the resting place of more than 2,000 victims who were murdered by the Nazis. Here you will visit the Holocaust Cemetery and the Emanuel Tree memorial, a metal weeping willow tree with the names of Holocaust victims inscribed on its leaves.

Just 5 minutes away from the Great Synagogue you will find the Rumbach Synagogue, a real hidden treasure of Budapest's Jewish quarter with its neo-Arabic style architecture.

    Beautiful place, full of history, that although it made us a little nostalgic, it was very interesting and necessary to know.

    Interesting tour, the first time I went alone and did not understand much, but now with a guide it was very different, he explained in detail and it was much more valuable.

    Very good explanation by the guide. I went with my teenage daughter who does not have much knowledge on the subject and she was delighted.

    The history of the Jews is very strong but it is necessary to know about it to know the reality and not to repeat it again. It is impressive to know that there were victims in different parts of Europe and Budapest is one of them. 100% recommended
