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

A place for prayer which conveys the great respect for all the religions in this modern capital city. Not impressive still worth to see.

Built in 1853 and as beautiful as ever. The Cantor was a convivial tour guide, giving us an apercu into the history of Jewish Copenhagen and of the building itself. It's regrettable that you have to make an appointment way ahead of time and go...More

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.
