With the oldest mikvah north of the Alps it is a must. The women's and men's walls and walking down into the mikvah from ground level is impressive.

This is all that is left of a once thriving community. The mikvah was built around 1120 and is the oldest north of the alps. Come and quietly ponder

Our guide took us to Judenhof, which contains remains of the medieval synagogue and ritual bath in Speyer. Our guide did a commendable job of enlightening us about the significant Jewish community in this area of Germany prior to 1940. This is well worth visiting,...More
