Discover 400 years of Danish Jewish history in Copenhagen

On this page you can find two different maps of Copenhagen, which guide you through the fascinating Jewish history of the city. One map is a city map with an overview of places of Danish Jewish significance, while the other is a planned route of 5 km.
The maps guide you on the tracks of an often somewhat hidden, but nonetheless fascinating, history – past the city's buildings, statues, memorials, mansions and squares, backyards and slums, all of which bear witness to 400 years of Jewish history in Denmark. 
The history of Jews in Copenhagen is rich and diverse, and we want to make this history easily accessible to everyone. By using the map, you can easily find the places that have played an important role in the city's Jewish community over time.
We hope that you will find the map and route both useful and inspiring, and that it will enrich your understanding of Copenhagen's Jewish history. Enjoy your city tour!
