The High Synagogue was originally linked to the town hall

The High Synagogue, which can be found directly opposite the Old-New Synagogue, was built at the same time as the Jewish Town Hall next door by Mordechai Maisel in the second half of the 16th century. The Italian architect Pankrác Roder designed the building.

The High Synagogue was originally linked to the town hall by an entrance on the 1st floor, and served as a meeting place for the Jewish community and representatives of the Jewish Town. However, this entrance was bricked up at the end of the 19th century and a new one created on Červená Street.

The Renaissance building now houses an exhibition of 16th—19th-century synagogue textiles from the Jewish Museum.

Barrier-Free Entry: no
