TOUR OVERVIEW

On this sightseeing tour, you’ll travel around present-day Klaipėda (historic Memel) and get to know the multicultural city. You will find out to whom Israel is grateful for its national flag and currency; how many synagogues there were in Klaipėda; what links the Jews of Klaipėda with amber; how a doctor of Jewish origin helped stop the spread of leprosy to Europe; why one of the richest and most famous philanthropists of Memel, merchant Ludwig Wiener, who after his death bequeathed his entire estate to the city magistrate and the poor, was buried in the city cemetery instead of the Jewish cemetery; and why the tour is called “Exploring Klaipėda on the shekel road”. The route will take about 2.5–3 hours, and you will travel about 4 km.
