Great Synagogue - Review
Copenhagen Synagogue dates back to 1833 and is the main Synagogue for the Jewish population in Denmark. During the 19th century, there was a revival of Roman as well as Greek architecture but this Synagogue shows influences of Egyptian design- a unique fact in itself. The synagogue was designed by G. F. Hetsch in semi-oriental style with classic details- something that catches your straight away.
With the Second World War heralding a scare into the Jewish community, the Torahs of the synagogue were hidden away in the Trinitatis Church to later make their way back home post the war. In 1985, the place suffered from Terrorist attacks. Today, the synagogue has stood the test of time and offers a whole new world of beautiful cultural art work, spiritual ambience and gorgeous design.

Great Synagogue, Copenhagen Reviews
Not really a place you can visit, but right outside the fences is the home of the most famous puddle in Copenhagen and probably also the most photographed puddle in the world. I guess it's a Instagram thing.
Built in 1853 and as beautiful as ever. The Cantor was a convivial tour guide, giving us an apercu into the history of Jewish Copenhagen and of the building itself. It's regrettable that you have to make an appointment way ahead of time and go through layers of security, but it seems to be the modus operandi these days. If you can, by all means visit, there are little treasures hidden in dark corners and new light shining in.
Orthodox synagogue in a big, empty, but still nice building.
Haven't been inside but the puddle outside this place is a popular spot for photographers to get a reflection shot of the round tower/rundetaarn
Haven't been inside but the outside is quite plain
