The synagogue is well-worth a visit. One of the oldest in Northern Europe; it's currently undergoing renovation. I'd like to see what it looks like when the renovation has been completed.

This is a very beautiful synagogue in an unique Greek and Egyptian architecture. Worth visiting if you are interested in Jewish history.

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.
