"Germany for the Jewish Traveler"


Lübeck is one of the best preserved medieval cities of Germany. The red-brick Lübeck Synagogue is North Germany’s only still functioning prewar synagogue. The classic interior – blue ceiling decorated with Stars of David, the women’s gallery supported by wooden beams, the ornate wooden arch curving over the bimah – seems unchanged since the synagogue opened in 1880. Though today’s community is tiny, every seat in the synagogue has a prayer book on it, as if a big turnout is momentarily expected.
