Beautiful exterior

Nice to look at when you pass by, and offers a hint of the social status of the Jewish community pre-1933.

The story of this synagogue is so sad - lovingly built in the early 20thC, just surviving kristellnacht only to be completely destroyed in the war. Parts of it have now been refurbished in order to tell the story of a lost community and heritage building. Exhibits are traditionally laid out and have extensive information labels in English as well... More

The building is impressive from the outside. The exhibition was good and sad to see the prayer hall was destroyed but very moving

The building on the outside looked very inviting, but once I got inside, all there was was a very small exhibition. There was another temporary exhibition but you had to pay extra for that... The exhibition was very informative and provided an idea of what Jewish life was like in Germany before and during WWII. But personally, I think €5,-... More

This is a very historical building, and definitely worth a visit. It was saved during Kristallnacht, although unfortunately partially destroyed during WWII

We saw the tall and shiny building from afar. It had been beautifully restored on the outside. We decided to buy tickets and go in. We were thoroughly searched and expected there would be a lot to see, but that was quite a disappointment. We were allowed to go up to and enter the cupola and could look outside, but... More

Destroyed maybe restored in part. The symbol of a movement that was not eradicated became the auditorium for choirs celebrating its 150th year of foundation during our visit. The vastness of the place and what physically has been lost shows that the people who were members and the people who visit are more important than beautiful structures. For those who... More

Make no mistake, the so-called Neue Synagogue in Berlin's Oranienburgerstrasse is not at all new. In fact, it is laden with history, which is why it hosts a museum of Berlin Jewish history. Its gilded domes remind one of its status as almost a cathedral-like presence for the large Jewish community who lived in this part of pre-Nazi Berlin. The... More

This is a wonderful synagogue that you cannot fail to miss if your visiting the superb Orianienburger Straße . The synagogue is certainly beautiful with its lovely domed tower's. The synagogue looks very impressive and is a nice little tourist attraction with tours available. I think that it is well worth jumping the tram down to here and admire the... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
