Information for Visitors of Heiliger Sand

The Jewish cemetery »Heiliger Sand« is closed for individual visitors until further notice and can only be visited as part of a themed tour (public or booked).

Please book guided tours here

Please note:

For religious reasons, male Jews always wear headgear in the synagogue. We therefore generally ask male visitors to wear a headgear as well. This does not have to be a kippa, it's fine to wear a hat, a cap or a baseball cap. Without a headgear, a visit for male guests is not possible.

Please do not leave the paths and respect the Halakha , the Jewish religious laws with respect to the dead. The path leads you along the medieval area to the newer part of the cemetery. From there you have a wonderful view of the entire area and the famous Rabbinic Valley; you will pass also the »Martin Buber-View«.
