The Synagogue has heavy security after the guard was shot and killed in February of 2015. You can only visit between 10-12 when the Cantor is there.

This is what remains of a vibrant Jewish Comminity. It is now heavily secured due to the killing that happened in the front of the building in February. The interior is beautiful. Worth Seeing.

Make sure to contact the staff prior to Friday to get your name on the guest list, and make sure to grab a siddur in English, not Danish. Then relax for a warm lovely Modern Orthodox service and a welcoming (albeit small) congregation.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
