Absolutely stunning! We took a tour and received a comprehensive and enlightening history of both the Synagogue and the Swedish Jewish community overall. Would highly recommend attending. It's about an hour long and well worth it!

We visited the Temple when they had a regularly scheduled English tour. The tour guide was excellent. She not only showed us the beautiful building but gave us tremendous insight into the Jewish community in Stockholm.

I concidentally walked by. It was Sunday and was closed but the building is very elegant. It is on a small street next to the park. It was built 1867-1870 according to designs made in 1862 by the architect Fredrik Wilhelm Scholander.

A very impressive building from 1870 with 1000 seats, the community at that time was 400! Built with oriental motifs with 2 balconies, and a big organ on the 2nd balcony. The synagogue belongs to the Jewish conservative movement and today has mixed seating and egalitarian service. The present cantor is from South America with a tender tenor.

We were not able to enter on the day we went to view it but the outside was a treat to see. The do have tours and the times are listed on a sign outside. The main entrance is very picture worthy!

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.
