New Synagogue

Interesting
The Neue Synagoge was built from 1859-66 by Edward Knoblauch, who was inspired by Moorish (the façade) and Indian (the dome) architecture. Inside the building, the Centrum Judaicum recounts the synagogue's history, with temporary exhibitions on the history of the Jews in Berlin. The synagogue has not been fully restored and a glass wall marks the end of the restored section. This overlooks a garden, where traces of the original building can be seen. The dome boasts fine views of the district.
