Jewish Vienna

Vienna, like many other european cities, has a long lasting Jewish history.
 
In the Middle Ages Vienna´s Jewish community was amongst the largest in Europe. Traces of this community are still evident in Vienna's Judenplatz today, where the Holocaust memorial by Rachel Whiteread can be found as well as the excavations of the old synagogue.
 
A walk in the footsteps of the Jews from the Middle Ages to today, when again a small community has formed in Vienna.
 
The walk takes us through the former Jewish Quarter and the Jewish Museum inVienna, which  recentlyafter extensive renovation and reconstruction workhas re-opened its doors for interested visitors.
