JEWISH TOURS IN COPENHAGEN
On our Jewish tours around Copenhagen, we will share with you the amazing story of Danish Jewry from when the first Jews were invited by the king Christian 4th in 1622 to the present time. Furthermore our tours will cover some of the most interesting general sights of our Capital. Although never large in numbers, the Jews in Denmark had a substantial and important influence on Danish culture and history. The sights on our tours include the Synagogue and The Jewish Museum, and the Copenhagen landmark, The Round Tower with its golden Hebrew inscriptions.
The miraculous rescue of the Danish Jews We have also created a special tour where we will take you to the little fishing village of Dragor 8 miles outside Copenhagen. Here you will encounter the fishing boat, Elisabeth, which took part in the miraculous rescue of 7,000 Danish Jews in October 1943. All our guides will tell you their families personal stories in relation to the rescue.
