Worms is home to some of the most glorious Jewish sites in Germany. The Jewish community flourished here from the 11th to the 14th centuries. There is no longer a Jewish community; the many Jewish sites are maintained by the municipality. Jews’ Lane is still configured as it was during the Middle Ages. Worms’ Jewish treasures lie just off the lane at Synagogenplatz. Southwest of Worms is Europe’s oldest Jewish Cemetery. Some 2,000 densely packed, hard sandstone tombstones can be found here.
