This “Reform” Synagogue at Rumbach Street was built by the Austrian architect Otto Wagner in the late 19th century with an elaborately designed exterior and a Moorish-style interior. It remains closed in hope of restoration by some TBD generous donors.

District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses
the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and
colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in
an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes
and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic
crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of
the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in
Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly

We just did Rick Steves walking tour on our own...takes you to 3 synagogues - all worth seeing. Just buy your own tickets at the door. The tour is described in his Budapest guide book.
