The Basics

The best way to explore the Jewish district is on a walking tour, which will cover landmarks such as Dohany Street Synagogue, the second-largest synagogue in the world; Kazinczy Street Synagogue; and the Raoul Wallenberg Holocaust Memorial Park. To learn about the city’s Jewish history, once one of Europe’s most thriving such communities, set aside some time to visit the Hungarian Jewish Museum and the moving Budapest Holocaust Memorial Center.

Budapest City Walk in Jewish Quarter
This was an exceptional tour of the Jewish Quarter. Timea was knowledgeable about the history of Jews in Hungary, particularly Budapest, as well as the Jewish experience today. We learned quite a bit and appreciated Timea's sense of humor as well as knowledge. I would highly recommend this tour.

A MUST TAKE tour of Jewish history in Budapest with Timea!

Budapest City Walk in Jewish Quarter
Awesome walking tour with Timea to learn about the Jewish history of Budapest! My family and I learned ALOT about Jewish history and culture in Budapest with her. It was a walking history lesson sprinkled in with Timea's personal stories, which we all very much enjoyed. Timea did a great job of keeping my 2 teen boys interested and engaged. She has a lot of knowledge not just about Jewish history, but about greater Budapest too. Timea also jumped in to help us when we needed help to get Covid tests. She made calls for us and basically saved us from navigating websites in Hungarian. She also came to the rescue when I felt faint from dehydration. She gave me her tea to drink. She ended spending 2 extra hours with us, so we could finish the tour. She also provided recommendations after the tour was over. If you are interested in learning about the Jewish history of Budapest, take Timea's tour! You won't be disappointed.

Amazing tour with TImea

Budapest City Walk in Jewish Quarter
The best thing we did in Budapest was our tour of the Jewish Quarter with Timea. I can't say enough praise for her and the tour that she gave us. She picked us up at our hotel, was prompt, and went at our pace. She taught us so much about the Jewish history in Budapest before, during and after the Holocaust. She is incredibly knowledgable and also was comfortable sharing her personal stories. We had many interesting conversations with her about what we were seeing, which really enriched our experience. We saw much more than what you see on the typical group tour. It's easy to feel a warm connection with Timea, and I can't recommend her highly enough.

When to Get There

The Jewish Quarter is a hub of activity both day and night, and while weekdays are the quietest time to admire the monuments, the most atmospheric time to visit is in the evening, when the pubs and bars begin to fill up. Alternatively, time your visit for the Jewish Cultural Festival in September or visit over the holidays, when the streets will be dazzling with festive illuminations and a Christmas market is held in Gozsdu Udvar.

Nightlife in the Jewish Quarter

In recent years, the ruins of the former Jewish ghetto have been transformed into one of Budapest’s liveliest nightlife quarters, breathing life back into the long-abandoned area. Head to Gozsdu Courtyard (Gozsdu Udvar) after dark, where you can tuck into exotic cuisine at one of the many international restaurants, enjoy a beer at one of the atmospheric ‘ruin bars’ (so-called as they are built in and around the ruins), or dance the night away at one of the many bars and nightclubs around Kiraly and Kazinczy streets.
