This was once the biggest synagogue in Berlin, with 3500 seats. Beautiful building, with a gold dome in the center of the old Jewish neighborhood. Inside you can get an idea of what it must have looked like before WWII. The permanent exhibit includes Jewish...More

Sorry but for me it was a waste of money. It is not really a functioning synagogue just some exhibitions put up. The outside is stunning and I suggest you take some pics of it. Not really worth coming inside unless you are into the...More

To be honest unless you're hugely interested in the history of this particular synagogue, I wouldn't go in to see the not-very-well curated exhibition, but instead would stay outside and admire the amazingly beautiful dome. The staff here are the most unfriendly people I met...More

Neue Synagogue is a wonderful building on the famous Oranienburger Straße . The Synagogue has an amazing domed roof that is really eye catching. The original synagogue that stood on this site was once one of the largest in the world but an allied air...More

I really enjoyed the sabbath at this very welcoming synagogue; the rabbi and staff were a joy and I was welcomed with opened arms. The spirit of openness continued for the day after which I spent st the synagogue.

Although this synagogue survived Kristallnacht it didn't survive US bombing nearby telegraph office or the communists. Much of the building was destroyed but what is here has been lovingly restored and there is a wonderful museum showing artifacts that did survive.

This place used to be an astounding monument of architecture, it was and today you stand outside and admire the beauty, and gain a huge disappointment once going inside this is so sad

It is not a matter if the place is beautiful or not: it is fantastic from the point of view of the architecture. Stop. You pay 5/6€ to see almost nothing: 3 rooms and a badly organized exposition. But the most awful thing is how...More

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

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
