What to expect

After meeting your guide at Hackescher Markt, you will head to your first stop at Haus Schwarzenberg, where you’ll visit Otto Weidt’s Workshop for the Blind. Weidt tried his best to save Jews from deportation by deliberately employing them here.

Next, you’ll criss-cross through what, some 100 years ago, was a working-class district and now is one of Berlin’s most cutting edge neighborhoods. Reaching the so-called Barn Quarter, you will see where many Jews from Eastern Europe used to get stuck on their way to Hamburg, to eventually board a US-bound steamer. After winding your way through the narrow streets of the Barn Quarter, now lined with trendy shops and eateries, your guide will lead you to the then-called Spandauer Vorstadt where Berlin’s oldest Jewish cemetery is located.

Discover this quaint neighborhood on your way to Koppen Platz with its haunting Deportation Memorial. From there, you'll continue along Linienstrasse and Auguststrasse, where you’ll visit a former Jewish Girls’ School, now turned into one of Berlin’s poshest addresses for art and culinary delights.

Crossing the famous Heckmann Höfe, you’ll soon reach the stunningly restored New Synagogue, which was badly damaged during WWII and now serves as a museum with an adjacent prayer room. The tour ends here, with an option to have tea either at the Tadjik Tea Room, or the pretty coffeeshop Le Petit Bijou, in the newly restored Palais Simon.
