This synagogue is easy to miss on the narrow street of Östra Larmgatan. Gothenburg's first synagogue was initially housed in a building on Drottninggatan, but it burnt down before the end of a year. It was rebuilt after five years at Kyrkogatan 44. Inaugurated in 1855, it became The Great Synagogue, the main synagogue of the city. Its design follows the drawings of German architect August Krüger. The style of the services at this synagogue is continental and liberal, but also has some more traditional elements, for instance that of the separation of men and women. The synagogue has room for 300 people. Services are held on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings.
