Beautiful on the inside. There is security on the outside which may hinder your entering during services. Outside is very interesting. Photo of Western Wall covers the courtyard wall. There is a kosher restaurant on the grounds.It is well worth a visit.

Was fortunate enough to be in Stockholm on Shabbat and attend Friday night services. The congregation was warm and inviting. It was a great experience. Would definitely do it again!

Absolutely stunning! We took a tour and received a comprehensive and enlightening history of both the Synagogue and the Swedish Jewish community overall. Would highly recommend attending. It's about an hour long and well worth it!

We visited the Temple when they had a regularly scheduled English tour. The tour guide was excellent. She not only showed us the beautiful building but gave us tremendous insight into the Jewish community in Stockholm.

I concidentally walked by. It was Sunday and was closed but the building is very elegant. It is on a small street next to the park. It was built 1867-1870 according to designs made in 1862 by the architect Fredrik Wilhelm Scholander.

A very impressive building from 1870 with 1000 seats, the community at that time was 400! Built with oriental motifs with 2 balconies, and a big organ on the 2nd balcony. The synagogue belongs to the Jewish conservative movement and today has mixed seating and egalitarian service. The present cantor is from South America with a tender tenor.
