The Stadttemple Synagogue was the only Synagogue left standing after the Kristallnacht - the night when the Nazis launched a coordinated attack on the Jewish people in Nazi controlled areas.
The Stadttemple was originally built in 1825 by the Viennese architect Joesphe Kornh&auuml;usel. It was built directly into a line of houses, due to regulations stating that only Catholic places of worship could have direct access from the street. In fact, this was the reason that the Synagogue itself was not burned to the ground on the Kristallnacht.
Although not completely destroyed, it was severely damaged, however it has now been restored to its former glory. Today this synagogue is the main place of worship for the Jewish people in Vienna.
The Synagogue is located in Vienna's main district, not far from other attractions like the Ruprechtskirche and the river Danube.
