Alte Synagoge Essen

The “Old Synagogue”, today a cultural institution of the city of Essen, is located in the former synagogue of the Jewish community of Essen. The building was one of the largest and most architecturally significant, detached synagogues in Europe of the 20th century. Today it is a unique cultural monument.

There are permanent exhibitions for Jewish, German-Jewish history and Jewish contemporary culture. Actual events complement the program.
