  • The neue synagoge met just outside wandering around Oranienburger strasse, which is a very pretty Street in Mitte. In the late afternoon neo Moorish building is even more beautiful reflecting its golden domes.

  • Dedicate your time from Berlin to visit more. Just see the dome and the building from the outside. You can't visit the synagogue itself: access allowed only to the dome. No one enjoys no view and the internal environment are bare and the presence of police and guards makes unfortunately unattractive.

  • Exciting to get a glimpse. Thank you for the openness. Absolutely worth seeing. A piece of German history to the touch.

  • I didn't even enter, didn't want to... So much permanent Police force waiting for terrorism or other stupid things they believe in... Just another religion of peace that brings only lies and havoc. A big shame . . . and no, I am not a muslim... Nor do I hate jews... I love live but just can't stand injustice...
  • I was an emotional mess! But it brought me such great peace! A must see if in Berlin!
  • My first visit was in 1984. It was still a burned out, gutted ruin of Kristalnacht. There was no entry fee, because no one was allowed entry, there were no open accesses through which to enter, and the East German Communist delusionals in power allowed that mark of former Jewish presence to continue to rot. The negative comments on this web site make me wonder. The one stating the rebuilt structure is larger than the "normal modest size" synagogue means the inquirer has no clue about the size of Berlin's pre-1938 Jewish community and that the original, large building was designed to accommodate that one synagogue's large membership of families, wiped out by the Nazis. The critique about not much to see inside amazes. Pre-Nazi photos and descriptions are gorgeous. "Wasn't worth the entry fee"? Any of those disappointed visitors ever pay an entrace fee at a crumbled archaeological ruin without complaining it was empty or open or dusty? No sense of history, humanity or context in those criticisms. Concisely, just no sense, period.
  • Beautiful building outside. Nothing to see inside. We paid 3 euro each for visiting the dome, not worth a penny.
  • Curry sausage. Brill. Mates had fish which was ok.
