5 hour walk thru Copenhagen's Jewish History with licensed private guide


This walking tour comes through historic Copenhagen with a special focus on Jewish life in Denmark, a story that goes back to the 16 century - the first wave fleeing the Spanish Inquisition. the second wave from Russian pogroms. Another theme is the German occupation of World War II, where the Jewish saga culminates in the escape by boat of the Jewish population of Denmark to neutral Sweden.

A visit to the Mitzvah museum - designed by Daniel Libeskind - is included in the program. NOTE: MUSEUM IS CLOSED ON MONDAYS!
