Budapest has the largest Jewish community in Central Europe, with an active religious, artistic and historical Jewish heritage. Through centuries the Hungarian and Jewish history has been intertwined. Hungarian Jews played and are also playing today an important role in the country's economical, cultural and political life. Since 1995 we show to Budapest visitors the Hungarian and Jewish culture in our country. Our well trained guides have the necessary qualifications to help you understand the Jewish past and present in Budapest and in Hungary. Tours are organized in two languages (English and German). We try to keep the sightseeing tours with small groups of guests.

Part of a riverboat cruise down the Rhine, we stopped here in breathtaking Budapest, coming in all lit up in the evening. The Jewish Heritage Tour was informative and interesting not being Jewish ourselves. Sad to learn what happened during WWII here and everywhere else.

This is one of the best tours I've been on - and I'm not one who normally likes tours. This one was very informative. We went to the important places in the quarter - none was a waste of time. Go. Let yourself be touched.

The tour was one of the highlights of visiting Europe. Our tour guide Fatima was excellent as was our museum guide Miklos (spelling?). The tour was informative, personal and educational. Highly recommended.

The tour was moving and at the same time very informative. The museum guide has survived the Budapest ghetto as a five year old. Our main tour guide, Roland, was very knowledgeable about both the buildings and the history of the area.

District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses
the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and
colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in
an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes
and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic
crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of
the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in
Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly
