What You Can Expect

Small-Group Walking Tour of Jewish Vienna Including Holocaust Memorial

Holocaust Memorial at Judenplatz

Your tour will begin near Stephansplatz in central Vienna. Join up with your guide and begin your walk through the city.

Arrive first in the central square of Morzinplatz and hear the history of the Gestapo’s presence in Vienna. Examine the square’s memorial up close, which honors the city’s Jewish residents who were imprisoned during WWII.

Follow your guide through the Jewish Textile Quarter as you head to the Judenplatz Holocaust Memorial. Standing solitary in the city’s ‘Jewish Square,’ the memorial was designed by British artist Rachel Whiteread and is alternatively called the Nameless Library. The structure is made from concrete and steel and is dedicated to the 65,000 Austrian Jews that died in the Holocaust.

Your tour will conclude in Judenplatz, where you can continue exploring on your own in the nearby Jewish Museum if you wish.

Our tour guide, Barbara, was fantastic! She was extremely knowledgeable, funny, brought along visual aids maps, pictures, newspaper clippings that she had downloaded from the internet. We had a tour of the synagogue earlier in the day and thought the tour might be repetitive, but it was very interesting and provided us with a great history of the Jewish people from medieval times to today. Highly recommend the tour.

Excellent, high-energy, bilingual tour with tour guide Barbara Timmermann! The tour was very smooth even though it was completely bilingual in English and German. Barbara was extremely knowledgable even on subtle details of Jewish practice. She also has a very strong voice that really projected well. Highly recommend this 1-1/2 hour tour which involves walking very short distances.

This tour was very interesting. Our guide, Barbara, was very knowledgeable about the Jewish community in Vienna. Our group consisted of German and English speaking people. Barbara was very adept at explaining in both languages.
