What to expect

Learn more about the history of Berlin's Jewish community during a private and guided tour.

Berlin's Jewish community dates back to 1671 and was the largest Jewish community in Germany until World War II and the devastation of the Nazis. After reunification, it began to thrive again and is now one of the most dynamic and fastest-growing in the world.
Listen to moving fates and visit monuments while strolling through the narrow streets of this neighborhood. Immerse yourself in today's lifestyle district around Hackesche Höfe and admire beautifully restored courtyards where charming boutiques, hip cafés, and trendy galleries await guests. At the site of Berlin's first synagogue, find out more about the origins of the Jewish community. Visit the former workshop for the blind of Otto Weidt, who was honored as one of the Righteous Among the Nations for saving the lives of quite a few Jewish Berliners during the Nazi era.

Stroll along the Große Hamburger Straße which was of central importance for the Jews as among other things you'll see the oldest Jewish cemetery in Berlin, the Jewish high school, and the former Jewish nursing home. From here thousands and thousands of Jewish Berliners were deported to the Nazi concentration camps. In the cemetery, you will see the honorary grave of Moses Mendelssohn, an influential Jewish intellectual and representative of the Haskalah, the 'Jewish Enlightenment.
