After the expulsion of Jews from the Reichsstädte in the late middle ages, Fürth became a religious center of Jewish life in southern Germany. Political conflicts favoured the judicial situation of the Jews in Fürth. In the 18th century, a number of synagogues, centres of religious learning and even a hospital existed. Fürth was also a centre of Hebrew printing.
This tour is presented in German only, however special tours are also offered in a number of languages by the Tourist Information office.
