Currently the synagogue is under renovation and the front is covered in scaffolding and screening. From a distance its possible to see the "minarets" and top of the building which must be really beautiful.

This “Reform” Synagogue at Rumbach Street was built by the Austrian architect Otto Wagner in the late 19th century with an elaborately designed exterior and a Moorish-style interior. It remains closed in hope of restoration by some TBD generous donors.

It's truly a historical place that all should visit. The Jewish plight in Europe is so engrained with the city's history, it'd be ignorant to ignore such a historical place. You'll love the tour and enjoy all the scenery that goes with it.

We just did Rick Steves walking tour on our own...takes you to 3 synagogues - all worth seeing. Just buy your own tickets at the door. The tour is described in his Budapest guide book.
