Full description

Before the Holocaust, 173,000 Jews lived in Berlin. In 1945, there were only 9,000 survivors. Learn about the turbulent events of WWII, hear interesting facts and important stories. Follow your Private Guide along the path of sites and places connected with Jewish life and history.

During the 2-hours walking tour you will see the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, a significant site consisting of 2,711 concrete slabs. It commemorates the victims of the Holocaust and keeps the memory of unimaginable events from German history. Stroll through the Bebelplatz and hear the history of Nazi book-burning action. Take a look at the important monument named Trains to Life – Trains to Death built in the memory of the child victims of the Holocaust. Explore the Jewish Quarter and walk along the Oranienburgerstrasse passing by the New Synagogue. Visit the Koppenplatz and see “The Abandoned Room” monument commemorating the Jews who were thrown out of their houses and never returned to them. Finally, visit the Hackesche Höfe, a labyrinth of courtyards where many Jews lived and worked. During your tour, look under your feet and pay attention to the Stolpersteine – memorial stones commemorating names of Jews deported to extermination camps.

Extend your journey to 3-hours and have an additional visit at the New Synagogue. Hear about the events of the Kristallnacht, when the building was set on fire by the Nazis. However, the solid structure survived and currently, the synagogue is the seat of Centrum Judaicum, a foundation dedicated to the protection of Jewish heritage in Germany. Learn about its fascinating history and hear about the Jewish community in Berlin today.

Choose the 4-hours option and have a comprehensive experience. Visit Old Town sites, as well as the New Synagogue. Then, discover the Jewish Cemetery at Grosse Hamburger Strasse. This historical site is full of interesting facts and secrets. This is the oldest Berlin’s Jewish cemetery, and its amazing history and unique atmosphere make this sight a very special, worth visiting place on the Berlin’s map.
