Duration: 3 hours
If you’re interested in history, street food, going out or street art in Budapest, you can find it all in one place, in the Jewish Quarter.
During our tour we discover the depths and riches of Jewish heritage in the city. Dwelving in to Jewish history, I’ll show you the hidden Jewish treasures of the neighborhood with 3 synagogues.
We’ll take a look at the murals, that make the Jewish Quarter a true open air gallery; the kosher restaurants, and last but not least I’ll invite you in to the most authentic local ruin pubs and cultural centers which are the top meeting points for locals and party people.
Please keep in mind, the synagogues we visit on the tour are functioning religious places. On Friday afternoon, whole Saturday and on Jewish high holidays they are closed.
