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.
So please sign up for one of our exciting tours and learn all you ever wanted to know about the Jews of Copenhagen!
We offer different kinds of Jewish tours
Choose our Jewish walking tour, to really appreciate the many stories and a wide variety of sights. If you do not like walking, you may also choose to drive from place to place, or you can combine the two as you like.
You may also choose one of our rescue tours, where we bring you to the fishing village, from where many Danish Jews escaped to Sweden. Or how about combining 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).
