What to expect?

With the help of a historian, this 3 hour walking tour allows you to grasp the dynamic experience of what Jewish culture and everyday life in Budapest meant before WWII.  Major sites include Óbuda synagogue, Dohány Synagogue, small Hasidic shtibls and Sephardic­rite prayer­houses, and the two ghettos of Budapest in the XIII. and VII. Districts.

To grasp the dynamic experience of what Jewish culture and everyday life in Budapest meant is challenging enterprise. The term ‘Jewish Budapest’ can serve as synonym at once for anti­Jewish sentiment, upper­class lifestyle and poverty. Jewish Budapest is much more than the Jewish district and Dohány Street Synagogue that most walking tours present to visitors. Even to appreciate these standard sights, we need to consider the alternative Jewish experiences in a city where Jews number ¼ of the population before WWII and where the Jewish presence endured for 1000 years.

Highlights:

  • In the company of a historian, discover the Jewish experiences in a city where Jews number ¼ of the population before WWII and where the Jewish presence endured for 1000 years.
  • Visit the impressive classicist Óbuda synagogue, built  in 1821 as a proof of the affluence and influence of strong Jewish community that flourished in Hungary in the following decades.
  • Explore the Dohány Synagogue (1859), the greatest Jewish place of worship in Europe
  • Visit small Hasidic shtibls and Sephardic­rite prayer­houses which still surround the market where peddlers, petty­ traders operated during the interwar period
