The first part of the Grand Tour includes the whole Essential Tour (Dohány Street Synagogue, Jewish Museum, Martyrs’ Cemetery, Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Park, Tree of Life, Heroes’ Temple, Jewish Center).
After a short break we continue our walk through the Jewish Quarter, on the streets of the former Ghetto, where synagogues, monuments, kosher restaurants, and kosher shops can be found. While your guide tells you important facts and local stories from this area, you also get to know more about Budapest.
During our journey we visit the Memorial Park dedicated to Carl Lutz, then we pass by the famous Gozsdu Passage. The third station of the Synagogue Triangle is the Kazinczy Street Synagogue (interior visit), which is one of the largest operating orthodox synagogues in Europe, built in art-nouveau style. At the end of the tour, you have two options: you can accept our invitation to have a cake in the glatt kosher Fröhlich confectionery or you can receive 10% discount in the glatt kosher Carmel restaurant.
