"Schwedenplatz~ synagogue" Museum Judenplatz - Jewish Square Tip by Audrey118

  jewish synagogue
by Audrey118

This is probably the most important Jewish temple in Vienna. It is the only Jewish temple to survive the Nazis during the Crystal Night of 9-10 Nov 1938.

Worthy to take note of the history is that during Jospeh II, no non Christian building is allowed to show its facade towards the street, and thus the facade is modified with the temple built inside a complex.
