  • It's the religious centre in Munich, which could only be built against a lot of antisemitism and resistance. It's a high security area because of that, as Munich is still dealing with right wing antisemitism. A beautiful spot situated right in the city center. There is a nice Cafe right next to it. Apart from that a rather quiet and peaceful spot worth visiting and also remembering the darker history of Munich.
  • I attended an English speaking tour. This is a must see exhibit to understand how Jews have rebuilt in a city where they had been exterminated decades before. Great architecture with symbolism. I highly recommend as a tour to get the full benefit.
