What to Expect
Enjoy an informative 3-hour tour of Jewish Berlin and learn more about the history and background of a supposed minority.
See the New Synagogue on Oranienburger Strasse as well as other Jewish institutions. More than 333 years of Jewish history from the past to the present surround the synagogue. Hear about the cultural history of a supposed minority – the first Jews came to Berlin from Vienna in 1671. They rose to the middle class and were an important impetus for the cultural, social, scientific, artistic, and economic developments of the city.
At the same time, Berlin was an important place for intra-Jewish controversy. The tension between tradition and modernity was the breeding ground on which different branches of Judaism developed from Modern Orthodox Judaism to Reform Judaism.
You will also see various monuments that commemorate the expulsion and murder of Jews in Berlin as well as the resistance by many brave people.
