Jewish Vienna

What to know about Vienna’s Jewish history

While the Jewish community in Vienna is now only a remnant of its former numbers (some of whom come from Chabad Vienna), the city has put effort into recovering signs of her local history and culture. 

Along with the Jewish Museum (always offering new exhibits), the Museum Judenplatz (a view of local medieval Jewry), and the Holocaust Memorial, you can visit Vienna’s only remaining synagogue, or download podcasts made by people who knew this once-vibrant population. 

Jewish Vienna cemetery

Discover five-hundred-year old headstones in the Ninth District Jewish cemetery; these have been reset via a 1917 plan, revealing the only Jewish cemetery in the world preserved in its pre-World War II state. 

More joyful are the opportunities for children to explore and create in the Jewish Museum while the adults enjoy the café’s Mediterranean, Israeli, and Jewish dishes. 

There are still signs of Jewish culture from earlier times, but there are also new signs of Jewish community in Vienna.
When you visit Jewish Vienna, you must see: An halachic eruv surrounds approximately 25 kilometers from the Gürtel roadway and the Danube River; its status is available online.

In the category Jewish Vienna, you will find information About Vienna’s Jewish history, the Jewish Museum, Judenplatz Museum and Holocaust Memorial, the Jewish cemetery in Vienna, Stadttempel, etc.
