On the Rescue Route tour the Jewish guide will tell you the amazing story of Danish Jewry from when the first Jews were invited by the king Christian 4th in 1622, to the present time.

Visit to the Danish-Jewish Museum
The top architect Daniel Libeskind’s characteristic architecture will – in an almost labyrinthine manner – lead you into the enthralling universe of the Danish Jewish culture. The Museum is named ’Mitzvah’ honouring the rescue of most of the Danish Jews during WW2.

During the tour we will pass Copenhagen landmarks such as:

  • City Hall
  • Tivoli Gardens
  • The Parliament, Christiansborg Palace
  • The Round Tower
  • Royal Palace, Amalienborg
  • The Old Stock Exchange
  • The Pedestrian Street ”Ströget”

Visit to the fishing village of Dragör
Brave fishermen helped more than 95 % of the Jewish population in Denmark to safety in Sweden. Many Jews escaped from Dragör on small boats including the fishing boat Elisabeth.
In Dragör your guide will share their personal stories about the miraculous rescue of 7,000 Danish Jews in October 1943.

 

The tour ends after the visit to the Danish-Jewish Museum.
