Description

As you wander through Berlin’s streets, witness the troubled past of the city’s Jewish community. From its heyday in the 18th and 19th centuries and its shocking troubles in the 20th century to the city’s reaction today, see the sites that define one of the world’s fastest growing communities.

Begin by discovering how the Old Jewish Cemetery is representative of Jewish life in Berlin: originally the burial place for great Jewish people such as Mendelssohn, the site was all but destroyed by the Nazis. Now, the area has been restored. Observe the resplendent New Synagogue, hear the building's story and admire its impressive dome.

The most inspiring story of the tour concerns Otto Weidt and his Workshop for the Blind. Here, learn of his selfless struggle to protect Jewish workers and how he saved many lives. As you complete your tour, contemplate how incredible it is that a community that has endured so much is able to flourish again in the place of its persecution.

2/5 6 Oct. 2018

We were charged for 4 tickets when we only required 2 . The online booking process was confusing . Had 2 seniors and 2 adults booked for 2 people . The guide was told at the last minute he had to stand in. Our pickup should’ve in East instead of West . Nikolai was knowledgeable but would have at like to visit the big Holocaust memorial with him and perhaps a visit to the Jewish Museum .

We really enjoyed this tour. The guide was excellent-/very knowledgeable and personable. The places visited were very interesting. The amount of walking was just right. Would definitely recommend to others.
