Through the old jewish quarter
Before World War II Spandauer Vorstadt, also known as “Scheunenviertel” was a quarter with a high share of jewish population – since the 17th century.
The consequences of the Nazi-rule are still present, but today you will find here again a growing jewish community with a vital cultural life.
Enjoy during this important Berlin tour a unique quarter, rich of jewish history. Visit the oldest jewish cemetry in Berlin or the New Synagogue from 1864, opened under the presence of chancellor Bismarck. Also the former factory of Otto Weidt, kind of a Berlin Oscar Schindler, is a must.
