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.

Although this tour offered for free it was quite extensive. we had a enlightened guide who gave us a full background and all information on the sites we visited as well as on the legacy of the Jewish community. She was realy good and we tipped her accordingly.

Our overall rating is that Petra’s performance was excellent and we would recommend her and this tour to anyone. Petra was very well prepared for the tour. She had precise information to provide at every step of the tour. There was no wasted time. She had very much to say about every aspect of the Jewish Quarter and its history.... More

My focus on this trip to Europe was the Jewish history and culture of Central Europe. I started in Budapest and was not disappointed. Viktoria was a wonderful tour guide. She led us through streets rich in the history and culture and explained what we were seeing well. I was amazed at what I was experiencing. I highly recommend this... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the full immersion into the Hungarian Jewish History as it's both a rich and deep. Anna was our guide and she went above and beyond to really fill us in on the history as well as to provide us with additional tips and advise on other places to see and things to do during... More

The tour was very interesting. Fatima was an incredible tour guide. She was articulate, knowledable and funny. We're not Jewish but that didn't matter as she explained the things we wouldn't have understood. The only negative is that she doesn't come into the Dohany Synagogue at the end leaving us to go through it on our own. I would have... More

Our guide was Fatima who was excellent and delightful. The group was a mixture of Jewish and non Jewish with mixed knowledge of the religion. We all came away having learnt a great deal of Jewish history with moving stories of those who helped Jews avoid persecution and murder during WW2. Mostly outside so wear suitable clothing and we were... More

Our guide was Petra. Although she was very well informed about the Jewish traditions and places in Budapest, during the tour she didn't cover the historical aspects. Our expectation, according to the tour description, was to review the history of the Jewish community in Budapest. However, the tour was more focused on Jewish traditions.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
