What people are saying about New Synagogue Berlin - Jewish Centre

We had just taken the Charité tour on Friday so when we strolled up for this one and saw the same tour guide, we knew we were in for another treat. Susanne is such a dynamic presenter and it's crazy how much information she knows and delivers. This is one of the coolest parts of the city so a little behind-the-scenes is worth seeing!

Absolutely fascinating. Mark the tour guide was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable about the topic on the tour. He also was patient with everyone, allowed comfort breaks (which is needed on a cold December in Berlin).

The highlight of my trip. I feel more connected to the city all thanks to our tour. It’s like we were in a movie the whole time.

Interesting, fun, insightful and engaging tour! Matt was friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
