Jewish Vienna

Culture and History tour in Vienna

Tour Price : € 165,- Duration : 3 hours Languages: German, English, French, Spanish, Italian

Vienna is a wonderful city in many regards: it has thousands of cultural and historical monuments, the woods surrounding it are known all over the world, the architecture of Vienna is also of particular interest. However these are not the only attractions of the glorious capital of Austria. There are lots of places in Vienna, which are considered to be the Jewish heritage.

You would be surprised to know that the history of the city is very much interwoven with the history of Jews living in it. That’s why this private tour would be especially interesting and exciting for the history devotees or just people having some Jewish roots. During the tour you will have an opportunity to take a look at several ancient Jewish synagogues and the wonderful museum on Judenplatz and several other places. It is worth noting that the Jewish community appeared in Vienna approximately in the middle of the 12th century, and till the beginning of the 20th century it was one of the major centers of Jewish culture in the whole Europe. But during the rule of the National-Socialists in Austria, millions of Jews were murdered and deported in the Holocaust. Since the middle of the 20th century the Jewish society started to recover from those unimaginable atrocities.

During more than 800 years of their existence in Vienna, the Jews have founded approximately 93 synagogues in the city. It is worth noting that after the Kristallnacht pogrom only the Stadttempel synagogue has survived. You would definitely enjoy visiting the Jewish museum in Vienna, where you will be able to learn some interesting information regarding the Jewish religion, life and history in Austria. We will also visit such places as the museum dedicated to Sigmund Freud and the memorial to the victims of the Nazi occupation and tyranny.
