The impressive house of prayer in the Berlin Mitte, shines in full brightness since 1995. In 1943 the synagogue was hit very hard. 1958 was no other choice than to demolish the house completely. After the German Reunification, in the year 1991, the foundation stone was laid for the new building.
During a guided tour, which costs just 3,00€, you have the opportunity to get deeply into the history of Jewish culture. At the tour you see a large open space with the old floor plans and eight marble pillars. Here was the former prayer room with space for 3.000 persons. The prayer room was not rebuilt after the war.
Besides the ever-changing exhibitions you will find the permanent exhibition “Tuet auf die Pforten” which shows all the impressive facets of the Neue Synagoge.
