Christoph GranzYou can learn much about the building of the old synagogue and a bit about Jewish religious services. In the basement of the impressive treasure trove is very nice. The pieces of jewelry for the bride and groom are tacked on a pair, so that their use can be seen directly. The silver coins and particularly the filigree wedding ring are worth the visit. On the upper floor are some impressive folios. The well-crafted audio guide is recommended. Admission is free with Erfurt card.show original
