Welcome to Jewish Copenhagen
On our Jewish tour around Copenhagen, the Jewish guide 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. Although never large in numbers, the Jews in Denmark had a substantial and important influence on Danish culture and history.
We offer different kinds of Jewish tours
You can choose a Jewish walking tour, driving or a combination. On our Rescue tours we bring yo to the fishing village, from where many Danish Jews escaped to Sweden. Or how about combing a Jewish tour with a visit to the beautiful Rosenborg Castle and a private boat tour in the charming canals (Jewish, Castle and Boat tour).
