- Begin at the square where the father of modern Zionism, Theodor Herzl, was born.
- Explore the Dohány Street Synagogue, the largest temple in Europe, with the assistance of a Jewish Studies Scholar. Take in the lavish, Moorish Revival style before visiting the Temple of Heroes, the Jewish Museum, and a Memorial Park, all within the complex.
- Walk to the neighboring Ghetto Wall Memorial, erected in 2014, before passing a luxurious Mikve (or Jewish ritual bath) and continuing to the Art Nouveau orthodox synagogue on Kazinczy Street.
- Discover the history of the Status Quo Ante stream of Judaism while observing the Rumbach Street Synagogue.
