Jewish Vienna in Leopoldstadt
This tour is a barrierfree tour

A walk through the vanished world of Vienna's Jewish Quarter between the Danube and the Canal. Leopoldstadt, Vienna's second district, was once a hub of Jewish life. Some of the town's finest synagogues were to be found there, also a wide array of Jewish shops, clubs, theatres and coffeehouses, and the splendid Grain Exchange, focal point of Jewish commercial interests. Leopoldstadt was also a central-European stronghold of Zionism and Chassidism. Sigmund Freud spent his youth there, composers Arnold Schönberg and Oscar Strauss were born there. This Jewish world was brutally destroyed in the Shoah, but new Jewish life has come back. On this tour we also follow the "Path of Remembrance" commemorating Jewish victims of the Nazi terror.
