Berlin Experience

Suitable for Family, Group, Senior

OVERVIEW

Germany has been the site of some of the most joyful and most devastating moments in Jewish history.

The community has existed since Medieval times, and a Jewish heritage tour to Berlin is the perfect opportunity to explore the complex history of the Jewish people in Berlin, from ancient times through the Holocaust and all the way to the vibrant, thriving community of modern-day Jewish Berlin.

Take a walking tour to explore Berlin history, learning about the complexity of WWII and communism. Visit the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Meet contemporary Jewish Berlin community members and learn the stories of how they ended up there.
