The Great Synagogue of Stockholm is simple yet beautiful. It provides good information on the history of the Jewish community in Sweden and Scandinavia, offering a sobering exhibit on World War II.

A surprisingly large place but firmly locked except for tours. They are 1:00 pm Monday through Thursday and 11:00 am Friday. $20 a tour - but worth the effort to get there. The interior is striking and there is a good description of the history of Jews in Sweden. Definitely a recommend.

Enter the courtyard and encounter a large hanukiah. Then -- if you make advance arrangments -- visit the beautiful interior.

Check the opening times before you come! They only offer guided tours for tourists during the summer, and only on weekdays. You may be able to attend a religious service but then you are not allowed to take photos. I think they should offer some tours on weekends too. The guide was nice and explained a lot about their history... More

We try to visit synagogues around the world and did so a few weeks ago in Stockholm. Though we never did find the Rauol Wallenberg tribute that was somewhere near the synagogue, we did take the one hour tour. The docent was excellent, with thorough knowledge of the history of the Jewish populaton in Sweden, starting in the mid-1750s, through... More

Although we are atheists, we do not forget our Jewish origin. Therefore we decided to go visit the Great Synagogue of Stockholm. At first we thought it would be a very nice idea visiting the place on a Saturday morning, when the hall is in full operation. As we came across the synagogue (a stone's throne of Kungsträdgården), the guard... More

Sweden should be a country of free, tolerant people. Concerning jews Swedes in genral is not better than other Europeans. However without real progromes some Swedes succeded to be exemples to all of us. At the Synagogue you will be able to lear more about it.

This is a beautiful synagogue and the guide that was there who described the history and current status of the community is excellent. Very worth the time to visit. Tip is to find out ahead of your visit when the scheduled tours are...it is exceptional.

The Great Synagogue of Stockholm is a beautiful building, inside and outside. It is well worth a visit regardless of one's religion. Tours can be scheduled Monday-Thursday. There is security on the premises. The congregation is warm and welcoming. The current rabbi is from Israel and does not as yet speak Swedish. His sermon was in English and there are... More
