Synagoge Oranienburger Strasse

Are you planning to travel to Berlin? "Milk and Honey" - the only Jewish Internet Tourist Agency in town - offers you all the help and tips you need. In combination with your ideas we will design your personal program, for a memorable and successful visit.

Who would have ever thought that Germany would once again become an interesting place for Jews to visit? However much in the world has changed and so has Germany. Located in the centre of Europe, Germany is becoming more and more attractive to tourists from all over the world. Following the end of the Cold War and the opening-up of the east, Germany started to invite Jews from the former Soviet Union and East-Block countries to move into the country. As a result, the Jewish population in all parts of Germany has more than doubled over the passed 10 years (around 85.000 members, Berlin: around 12000 members)and you will also find an increasing number of Jews from western countries, such as the U.S. and Israel moving to Germany. ...more

"Milk and Honey" will help to design your personal program while in Germany. We offer the complete organisation of your trip from start to finish - no matter if you travel as an individual, a family or as a group. If on the other hand you would prefer to make your own plans, we can help with all the details of your itinerary. We would be pleased to arrange your hotel reservations for you. You can have fully prepared individual (Jewish) company service, guided tours through Berlin or thematic tours through the 'Old Jewish quarter' of Berlin, museums, architecture, 'Nazi Berlin', gay and lesbian Berlin and much much more ... We will help you make contact with people who deal with political or cultural affairs, institutions or leaders of the Jewish community and others. We will inform you where to get your kosher food in town and our Jewish nanny will take care of your children, should you decide you would like to have a free afternoon and/or evening. We will introduce you to the best kept secrets of Berlin, all types of entertainment and of course the ultimate shopping sprees. We will help you join a family or group to celebrate Shabbat and/or jewish holidays with, offering all the comforts of home.
If you are searching for places where your family lived before the war or similar, we will help you with the necessary research and your travel arrangements.

Following the end of the Cold War and the opening-up of the east, Germany started to invite Jews from the former Soviet Union and East-Block countries to move into the country. As a result, the Jewish population in all parts of Germany has more than doubled over the passed 10 years and you will also find an increasing number of Jews from western countries, such as the U.S. and Israel moving to Germany. Berlin, once again the capital of Germany, maintains the largest number of Jewish residents and the broadest variety of synagogues and religious denominations throughout Germany. The Jewish community is constantly growing and has developed a vibrant, lively and exciting religious and cultural infrastructure throughout the city. There is rarely an evening throughout the year that does not offer a “Jewish” programme. However, there is much more on offer than just culture and religion which makes the city an interesting place to visit and explore. Naturally, the city of Berlin is filled with an incredible variety of history – both good and bad, as well as fascinating and sometimes quite depressing. While here, one cannot ignore the disastrous reminders that the “Third Reich” left behind over 50 years ago; nor the impact of 40 years of communist influence on the eastern parts of town. Considering this still vivid past it is even harder to understand the threatening behaviour of right extremist groups like the Neo-Nazis movement in Germany today, which can no longer be denied. Nevertheless, Jews in Germany have a voice and the Jewish community plays an active political role in the modern society. Regular discussions take place on the question of this being a positive or negative development. Furthermore, the Jewish community and the government go to great lengths to jointly decide on how they wish to and should make the past be remembered today and in future. The Jewish community itself also lays a lot of emphasis on re-designing the community in order to incorporate the growing demands and needs of our modern society. Both the interesting past and fascinating present Jewish life in Berlin are just waiting to be discovered and unveiled by you. It is important to explore, learn and experience first hand, in order to create a lasting, genuine impression.
