This beautiful synagogue was originally built in the late 16th century. After burning down in late 17th century, it was rebuilt in the Baroque style, and it received its final pseudo-Gothic design at the end of the 19th century. During World War II, Hitler planned to transform this building into an anti-Jewish museum. Today the synagogue is part of the permanent exhibition of the Jewish Museum, housing an impressive collection of Jewish prints and books. It is a fascinating place to learn about Jewish history. Either visit the synagogue on its own, or purchase tickets to the Jewish Museum, which includes entrance to six historic sites throughout the Jewish Quarter including the Maisel Synagogue. See the Jewish Museum activity item for more information.
