  • When we walked by the Oranienburgerstasse, we saw this beautiful dome that elucidated us be the new synagogue in Berlin. However, the next day we spent near and inquire at the entrance, a tourist who came out of the synagogue looked bored and made us sign not to go in. Obey and now to read the reviews of others, we realize! But the exterior is showy.

  • Another example of Berlin what should be this city until the wars Batten with it. What remains was synagogue mas grande Europe gives a very rough idea of what had to be. It is worthwhile to take an informandose time of what was the Berlin Jewish community and its history. Don't miss out the climb to the dome, there are great views of the city and although not for the entire journey, has a lift.

  • Facade is pretty cute and the story behind it is quite interesting. Inside you see pieces of what was the synagogue (important: no longer a synagogue, is a Museum), encostrados during its reconstruction artifacts, pictures, paintings and a lot of information. Recommend enough to visit, however, unless you care a lot about what was the synagogue itself, do not recommend the audio guide, he talks a lot of things that are already written on boards throughout the Museum, but more detailed. I was now, in Nov/2016 and had, too, a photo exhibition of a photojournalist. I bought the entry to see the expo, but I didn't think it was worth it. I thought you were going to see more photos of the post-war era, but has few. Most are portraits and some photos of journalists covers. Only the captions of the photos are all in German, so I couldn't understand the meaning of many of the images:( On the street behind the synagogue, has a hospital called St. Hedwig Krankenhaus (= Krankenhaus hospital) it is worth admiring the facade, especially in autumn as it is covered with plants that are with the Red leaves, oranges, yellows and Greens at this time. And yet in the same block, two minutes from the synagogue, has a bistrozinho delicious, very cute and super account (I paid € 6.50 in a soup + mineral water), called Coffee Buchhandlung. Loved it!

  • 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
