The synagogue in Ingwiller is from 1822 and was extended in 1891. Its exterior is surprising since it was constructed on the foundations of Lichtenberg castle. It is not used for religious service anymore. The copper bulb is from 1913. In the 1861’s census, the Jewish population was of 399 members.
