Situated behind the town hall, this recently renovated building was once a private home but converted for worship between 1840 and 1884.
A new larger synagogue was built at Karthauserring in 1884 which made this redundant. The latter suffered the fate of many when it was destroyed in 1938 though it was rebuilt in 1952.
The small synagogue by this time had been secularised and used as a vinegar factory before reverting to its original use as a residence.
When its current restoration is finished it will be a multi-cultural centre.
I have to say that there's not a lot to see here and a couple of minutes would probably suffice. It was only my curiousity that drew me here.
The picture shows some of the original brickwork but, apart from that, there's really only a fairly empty and uninteresting hall.
