Judenplatz Tours and Activities

153 Reviews

A Jewish community existed in Vienna from medieval times, centered around Judenplatz where the city’s first synagogue was built. That was burnt down during an uprising in 1420, by which time the Jews controlled much of the city’s wealth. A second Jewish enclave grew up in Leopoldstadt in the 15th century and flourished until the 1930s; there were synagogues all over the city and the Jews were part of wealthy Viennese society. All that came to an abrupt end in 1938 with the Nazis marching in to the city, and many thousands of Jews fled Austria following the burning of their businesses and houses on Kristallnacht, November 9, 1938.

Altogether 65,000 Viennese Jews died during World War II and the city’s Holocaust Memorial stands in Judenplatz, a controversial and austere white marble box that contrasts sharply with the ornate Baroque architecture that surrounds it. Designed in 2000 by British artist Rachel Whiteread, it is made of concrete and steel and recounts the names of the concentrations camps where Austrian Jews were murdered. The Museum Judenplatz is found alongside the memorial and provides a virtual tour through 900 years of Jewish history in Vienna. Coming full circle historically, it is built over the site of the synagogue that was destroyed back in 1420; its excavations form part of the exhibition.

The Jewish community of Vienna is a culture rich in history and goes back hundreds of years— from the first Jewish person in Austria, Salomon also known as Schlom, to the artists, doctors and scientists who shaped Viennese culture in 1900, to the Holocaust, to the present-day Jewish community in Vienna. Our Jewish Walking Tour emphasizes the intellectual, cultural and artistic flowerings of this remarkable community, as well as the dark periods wherein this community was banished from Vienna.

Vienna Food Walk: Explore the city's food and history on an audio walking tour

Vienna is known for a lot of things, but none of them seems to be food. As an Austrian country hick who moved to the city from a tiny village and has lived my whole adult life in Vienna, I think that this is totally wrong. Viennese people are what they eat. This tour will show you how the Viennese people see their city, by showing you which foods and especially drinks are liked the most by the people here. You'll hear the stories that shaped the Viennese people including:  - What the Romans built while in Vienna - Which tiny snacks that survived two world wars - Old buildings that look new and new buildings that look old - Vienna very own wine - Which food good enough for the emperor - And why ice cream parlours closing in winter So tuck into this food-filled off the beaten track walk through the first district and eat like a local. The tour includes optional stops at five eateries, so come hungry!
