JEWISH TOURS IN COPENHAGEN
On our unique Jewish tours around Copenhagen, we will not only tell you the story of Danish Jewry from when the first Jews arrived in 1622 to the present time, we will also show you the general sights of the Capital. Although never large in numbers, the Jews in Denmark have nevertheless 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 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.
