I regret to say that this is not a synagogue, its a small museum, there is no place for you to pray. It costs about 4 euros to get in, and another 2 to get to the Doom(not sure about the prices but this is the range), and you have to pay extra for a small brochure. After you get... More

Not interactive. Had to pay just to leave bags as not allowed to take them with you. Staff spoke no English. No photos allowed so don't bother going to the top because you can't take any photos anyway.

We could have really enjoyed this visit if the staff had made any sort of effort to be welcoming. The staff behaved as if they didn't want us there and made no effort to explain any security procedures. We bought tickets at the start and this included the dome but within 10 metres we were asked for our tickets again... More

The airport-style security and the confiscation of items such as pocket knives can be unnerving for the visitor. Inside there is little of interest other than a lame exhibition on the history. Photography is forbidden though this is not made clear, at least to English speakers. Having taken an innocuous snap in the lobby this visitor was grabbed by security... More

There is really no synagogue here as it has never been rebuilt inside. The view from the magnificent dome was very poor. Staff were less than friendly.It is better to go to the Judisches Museum, which is excellent for young people.

I like artifacts, not photos and if it has to be phitis, then I prefer photos of the original artifacts. I especially don't like items that were made by kids in a kindergarten class a few years ago - too recent for my liking. I had hoped the dome view would salvage the visit but nope, probably more disappointing than... More

The main hall of worship was destroyed in WWII. What remained was torn down in the 1950s. So what you can see is essentially the ante-rooms and the dome. Very little original detail remains. The dome (extra charge) is also a disappointment. It isn't high enough above the surrounding buildings to get a good skyline view. They don't even let... More

Don't go there. Not so much to see. We've been inside for like 5 minutes. You have to pay extra for the exhibitions. On the outside it'a beautiful, but we didn't like the inside that much.

Fascinating facade but not much of a museum overall. The walk to the dome offers beautiful views of Berlin's landmark from another vantage point.
