  • The new building of the new synagogue on Oranienburger Street in Berlin's Mitte district was again rebuilt on the old site, where stood the old, built in the mid-19th century building, completely destroyed in the war up to the ruins, which were leveled by bulldozers. The Moorish-style building with a huge gilded Dome, in my opinion, the most beautiful synagogue in the world. This dome is visible from afar and attracts guests in Berlin. Berliners have great syndrome of guilt before the Jewish community for the crimes of the Nazi regime during the war. The old building of podzhigalos', it was a military warehouse. Fortunately, all this has sunk into oblivion, and the new building pleases and Jews and non-Jews for its amazing beauty.

  • You'll know when your in the vicinity of this place thanks to the presence of the police who seem to be ever present at any Jewish site around Berlin. #Sobering I didn't go in due to the large bus party already queued up. But the outside of the building is an architectural delight with some useful info boards outside to provide plenty of background info and old pics.
  • The Old Synagoge has been partially rebuilt and serves as an Information Center. Architecture is impressive, history is tangibel. We enjoyed the small Museum. The outside is particularly beautiful when the sun hits the golden Dome.
  • Located in the Jewish Quarter of Oranienburger Straße, this was the largest synagogue in Berlin before the war. Germany under the empire was a tolerant nation, bringing migrants from all over the place. To serve the growing Jewish community, the empire built this synagogue. The New Synagogue is different from many synagogues I’ve encountered. For one, there’s a dome that seems to resemble the more traditional cathedrals. This building however is inspired by Moorish architectural styles.
  • Really disappointed. Paid 9 € and for nothing... Few things to see, most of just in German description. Dome is just empty walls with really small city view and photos not allowed. Nice from outside, don't waste money to go inside
