Opening Hours

We can finally open again! The Jewish Cultural Quarter can be visited again from 5 June. Check the opening hours below. 

Tickets can be purchased online by booking a timeslot via this link.

All locations of the Jewish Cultural Quarter, except for the Portuguese Synagogue, are open every day of the week. Different opening hours apply on some public holidays.

Face masks
It is no longer mandatory to wear a mask. However, you can continue to use them if desired. Special JCK masks are on sale in our museum shops!

Museum Café
The rules for restaurants and bars apply in the reopened Museum Café. That means no more than 4 persons per table and 1.5 metres distance between tables. This does not include children aged 12 and under, and groups that are part of a single household are also exempt. Visitors receive a medical check when entering the museum and this is also where you can book a table in the Museum Café.
