Synagogue at Rykestraße 53
The Synagogue at Rykestr. 53 in Prenzlauer Berg is the biggest in Germany.The construction plans for the building had been designed by the architect Johann Höniger and it was finally built in an area that used to be the backyard of a residential building. A large hall, which is used for important ceremonies and festivities, can be found in the three-naved basilica. Stairs are leading up the women's gallery. The fascade of the building reminds visitors of Romanic brick churches as they can be found in the Mark Brandenburg around Berlin.
