“Great Synagogue Stockholm”
Aug 3, 2018
“Locked and uninviting”
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.
Suggested duration: < 1 hour

Maybe it is locked and unwelcoming because it was the middle of the day on a week day but still I wanted to see it. The sculptures on the outside floor area are interesting to look at but still disappointed.

This is a magnificent synagogue. They got tours but you can also go on Shabbat and attend Friday evening services. Highly recommended if you are interested in Jewish history.

Beautiful on the inside. There is security on the outside which may hinder your entering during services. Outside is very interesting. Photo of Western Wall covers the courtyard wall. There is a kosher restaurant on the grounds.It is well worth a visit.

Was fortunate enough to be in Stockholm on Shabbat and attend Friday night services. The congregation was warm and inviting. It was a great experience. Would definitely do it again!

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and
