Welcome to Jewish Copenhagen

On our Jewish tours through Copenhagen, we will introduce you to the amazing story of Danish Jewry.  All the way back from when the first Jews were invited by King Christian 4th in 1622, up to the present time.

Although never many in number, the Jews of Denmark have had a substantial and important influence on Danish culture and history.
