We've visited Berlin numerous times as our son lives here but only recently paid a visit to the Neue Synagogue. The permanent exhibit was very informative and described Jewish life in Berlin the pre war times. We also paid to climb the domb.

The Neue Synagogue was one of the highlights of Berlin. I was surprised that this type of structure still remained from the pre-war days, thinking that such places were destroyed. The golden dome can be seen from all over Berlin and is quite a sight....More

Thee building is beautiful from outside but is definitely not worth a visit inside: once you pay you realize ther is no true synagoge as it got destroyed during the war. It's just a relatively small exposition place about jews in berlin.

A very beautiful building that stands as a reminder of the resilience of the Jewish people. However it's currently closed for tours which is unfortunate. It said it would reopen sometime this year (2018) however.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
