Fodor's Expert Review Old Synagogue

Erfurt Historical

In the Middle Ages Erfurt hosted a large Jewish community, as is evident in a large synagogue that is one of the oldest in Central Europe. A pogrom destroyed the community in the 14th century, and the city repurposed the building, renovating it several times. During renovations in 1999, workers uncovered a collection of over 30 kg of gold in coins and objects buried by the community during the pogrom. The Erfurt Treasure is the heart of the museum.
