Vienna

Suitable for Family, Group, Senior

OVERVIEW

Former seat of an empire, crossroads between east and west, Jewish heritage tours to Vienna are one of a kind, rich in history, famous Jewish figures, and well-curated museums in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Until the Holocaust, Vienna had a pulsating and vibrant Jewish world, including dozens of synagogues. Today, many of those Jews who were killed are remembered at the Shoah memorial wall in Ostarrichi Park and the Jewish Museum as well as the Museum Judenplayz.

Visit the subterranean excavation of a medieval synagogue, or see Herzl’s bicycle hanging from the ceiling of a museum. Hints of Jewish life exist in every corner of Vienna, appearing so often you may not even notice them until your tour guide on your Jewish heritage tour of Vienna points them out.

Explore the old Jewish neighborhood of Leopoldstadt, or get to know the community of today on a Jewish heritage tour, consisting now of people who returned after the war, immigrants from places like Uzbekistan and other parts of the former Soviet Union.

  • Visit the Jewish Museum, the Museum am Judenplatz (with the subterranean remains of a medieval synagogue).
