New Synagogue Tours and Activities

New Synagogue
The New Synagogue in Berlin is a Moorish-style building that was built from 1859 to 1866. It was designed by Eduard Knoblauch, though he did not live to see it finished. The synagogue was built with a highly visible, large dome and had refined steel construction of the galleries and roof. It could seat 3,200 people, and it was the largest Jewish place of worship in Germany. By 1933 it was the center of the Jewish community for the 160,000 Jewish citizens of Berlin. Unfortunately it suffered great damage during the bombings of World War II. 

After extensive repairs and renovations, the New Synagogue reopened in May 1995. Today the Centrum Judaicum foundation is housed here. It is an institution for the preservation of Jewish memory and tradition and includes a museum. Exhibits trace the history of the synagogue, and guided tours show visitors the open space behind the restored facade, which was once the main synagogue room. Visitors can also see Torahs and scrolls which were excavated as late as 1989 as well as other documents relating to the synagogue.

Practical Info

The New Synagogue is located at Oranienburger Straße 28/30.

Address: Oranienburger Strasse 28-30, Berlin 10117, Germany

Berlin Under the Third Reich: Private 4-hour Walking Tour

Berlin Under the Third Reich: Private 4-hour Walking Tour

Berlin was the dark heart of Nazi Germany – the capital city of a dictatorship that was responsible for waging a war that destroyed swathes of the European continent and industrially murdering millions. Why did the Germans think they needed Adolf Hitler in 1933? How could a civilised people fall so deep into the moral abyss? Why were Jewish and other minority groups, both in Germany and across Europe, ruthlessly targeted? What is the legacy of Nazism in Germany today? This tour answers such questions, giving crucial context regarding the rise of Adolf Hitler in pre-Nazi Germany, providing a comprehensive overview of the National Socialist capital, and telling the dramatic tale of the Battle of Berlin and the collapse of the regime in 1945.
