The third oldest Jewish place of worship was constructed in 1560. The ‘High’ in the name doesn’t refer to some sort of ecclesiastical responsibility. Rather, it refers to the fact that the synagogue is on the first floor of the building, as opposed to the ground floor, which just has shops. One of these shops is a good Jewish bookshop - Austeria. Not much remains of the temple’s past; the records were probably wiped out during the Holocaust. Still, check out the wall to the east, with the ark from the Torah. The murals suggest what the temple may have looked like in the past. The little activity still continuing here focuses on preserving historical monuments. Sometimes, there are small exhibitions and events.

Beautiful synagogue, which is now converted into a museum and bookstore. The bookstore has a lot of books on the Holocaust, and books written by the survivors about the extermination camps. Worth the visit!!
One of seven Synagogues worth to visit. Tickets for 1£. Ground-floor you facing books. Museum upstairs.
