The Budapest Synagogue is one of the largest in Europe, a wonderful architecture. In the same spot there is the museum, where you can have an insight in the history of the Hungarian Jews.

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

Do I have to buy a ticket to see the silver tree of life or the Raoul Wallenberg memorial? I'm not interested in seeing the museum or touring the synagogue. Thanks!

yes, you do. As per galen w's comments, the Raoul Wallenburg memorial and tree of life are in a courtyard accessed via museum. It is visible from a side street looking thru' fence bars but you won't get the enormity of it... More
