Rumbach Sebestyén utca 11-13, Budapest, Hungary, 1074

The basics

This synagogue played an important role in the Jewish history of Budapest. The temple was designed by famed Austrian architect Otto Wagner, known for creating prominent Art Nouveau structures. It was later used by the Nazis to incarcerate Jewish people during the Holocaust. Today, the space has been mostly restored, and it's open to visitors six days a week.

You can purchase a ticket to explore the ornate interior of the synagogue, though temporary exhibitions may require an additional fee. You can easily pair a stop with visits to the district's other two other famous synagogues—the Kazinczy Street Synagogue and Dohány Street Synagogue (otherwise known as the Great Synagogue)—or stop by on a Jewish heritage walking tour.
