The streets of Prague, quiet charm of Budapest and palaces of Vienna will remind you that you are walking the streets kings and lords walked centuries ago.
One of the many amazing things about Europe is how close together all the countries are. It’s unbelievably easy to travel from one country to the next within a day or night. This is especially true in Central Europe, where all of the countries and city hubs like Vienna, Prague, and Budapest are all so close. Each country, however, has their own history, and unique qualities that make them special. Each country and each city tell a different story. Each one of those countries have seen the both rise and fall of society, especially during the two world wars. Today, these countries are thriving, providing travelers and tourists some of the greatest historical and modern destinations to visit in Europe.
Vienna was once the epicentre for medieval worship, dating back thousands of years ago. This is one of the reasons for the gothic architecture of the famous hot spots in the city. Some of these areas in Vienna include the Hofburg Palace, St. Stephan’s Cathedral, Schonbrunn Palace and more. All of these sights helped created what Vienna is today.
Prague, much like Vienna, highlights the medieval period, showcasing gothic and baroque buildings around the city center. The city is best known for the Old Town Square, the 600-year-old astronomical clock, the synagogues and more. Budapest, once two different cities, Buda and Pest, converged together after in 1873. Again, like Prague and Vienna, the city represents the medieval period, showcasing gothic style cathedrals and synagogues throughout the city. Budapest has a strong Jewish history planted within the city, as it saw destruction of the Jewish society in World War Two, but also the rise and restructuring of the city after the war. There are some of the best kept synagogues in Budapest, helping encapsulate and showcase the Jewish heritage throughout the city.
IBMT knows how important it is to see these types of countries and cities throughout Central Europe. We offer a variety of tours for all of our clients to see the worldful history and modern day life of these historical cities and countries. IBMT offers Jewish heritage tours around the cities of Budapest, Vienna and Prague, as well as Warsaw and Krakow. These cities faced extreme turmoil during World War Two, as Jewish ancestors lives were taken, buildings and synagogues were torn down, and families were separated. It is important to see these cities for what they are today, giving us inspiration and hope for the lives of ourselves and our loved ones for the future.
Additionally, IBMT offers non-jewish heritage tours throughout the main hubs of Central Europe, giving you the opportunity to visit and witness the breathtaking architecture and cultural lifestyle of these historical cities and countries.

We recently returned from a IBMT Tour for our son’s Bar Mitzvah and we all agree that it was the best vacation that we have taken to date. The tour was well organized and the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable. The events that they include in the tour include everything “must see” in Israel and activities that will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between. The tour allows for activities for all ages and accommodates anyone who wants to do more or less than they have planned. It is ...
To Ornan and IBMT Tours staff,
We just got back from tour with IBMT for our Bat Mitzvah Tour in Israel.
We are so glad we have chosen the right company for our tour as I can’t express my words of how wonderful this tour company was, starting before we left, the personal service they showed here back home and later the service in Israel with our great tour guide Natalie who was so informative on every place we went and what we saw. It was so wonderful to listen to a ...
Thank you very much for the IBMT Bat Mitzvah tour we just completed. We had a fabulous time & there were lots of special little parts from the tour that contributed to that. The different experiences for dinner were very special, and I liked the variety of different types of sites/attractions. Our tour guide Natalie was excellent, and I heard good things from the other group about their guide Liat.

Sara / Ornan,
I had a fabulous time on this tour and highly recommend it to anyone interested. We had an especially knowledgeable guide with us Doron Hoffman who as a history major added so much more information and had a great demeanor. I was part of an international group and made some new friends.
"Opting to celebrate our son's bar mitzvah this summer with IBMT is one of the best decisions we've ever made. The itinerary took us to places around the country that I've never experienced on previous trips to Israel. Experiencing our son's bar mitzvah atop Masada as opposed to a more rushed, crowded experience at the wall truly sets IBMT apart from other tour companies. The professionalism of the IBMT staff both in North America and Israel was superb...everything was incredibly well organized and we were heartened ...
Bar Mitzvah Tour in Europe
We just returned from our trip this afternoon. We had a wonderful time and our trip was seamless! All three guides were great and drivers were professional as well.
Thanks for putting together the Siddur. It will be such a nice memento.
One quick question-is there a way to forward an additional tip on to Budapest guide Agi Antal? Is it best to deal with her directly or can I send you a check to be given to ...
