Prague Jewish Quarter (Josefov) Tours

Part of Prague’s UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Jewish Quarter (Josefov) is among the most remarkably preserved in Europe. Today, its striking monuments and memorials stand both as a tribute to the city’s rich Jewish heritage and a poignant reminder of its tragic past.
 
The Basics
Join a Jewish Quarter walking tour, which will visit the district’s four synagogues—the Old-New Synagogue, Klausen Synagogue, Spanish Synagogue, and Maisel Synagogue—as well as Jewish Town Hall and the 20th-century Jewish Ceremonial Hall. Tour the Old Jewish Cemetery and the former Pinkas Synagogue, now hosting a moving Holocaust memorial, to learn more about the Czech Republic’s Jewish history. Also explore Franz Kafka’s birthplace and Parizská Street for some designer shopping.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • A “Jewish Museum” ticket, valid for seven days, includes entrance to seven of the district’s synagogues and historic buildings.
  • Walking tours of the Jewish Quarter typically take three to four hours.
  • Many attractions, including the Spanish Synagogue, Maisel Synagogue, and the Old Jewish Cemetery, are wheelchair accessible.
 
How to Get to There
The Jewish Quarter is between Old Town Square and the Vltava River, and it’s easy to walk there on foot from any of the attractions in Prague’s Old Town. The closest tram stop is Pravnicka fakulta (trams 2, 17, and 18) and the nearest metro station is Staromestska (line A).
 
When to Get There
The Jewish Quarter is at its busiest during peak season (July and August); an early morning visit is the best time to avoid the crowds.
 
The Jewish Museum of Prague
During World War II, Hitler planned to preserve Prague’s Jewish Quarter as a “Museum of an Extinct Race.” Many religious buildings were left intact and valuable Jewish artifacts from all over Europe were imported to Prague. Today, Prague’s “Jewish Museum” serves as a memorial and tribute made up of seven of the quarter’s most important sites—the Robert Guttmann Gallery, the Ceremonial Hall, the Old Jewish Cemetery, and the Maisel, Pinkas, Spanish, and Klausen synagogues.
