Jewish Vienna Walking Tour
Visit the Vienna Holocaust Memorial
Following the Way of Memory
The synagogue does not allow external visitors except on their own guided tours, which happen at restricted times, so we cannot currently offer this option.
Will this tour go inside any of the venues?
This is an entirely outdoor door with the exception of a stop for a pastry at a kosher bakery.
Do we visit the Jewish Museum on this tour?
The Jewish Museum is not part of our standard Jewish Vienna tour. Visitors should contact the synagogue independently to sign up for an interior visit.

Her area of specialty is Music in Vienna, Jewish Vienna, Vienna around 1900, and wine culture. Marieta focuses very much on continuous education on her specialties and actively deepens her knowledge by conducting independent research, attending lectures at various institutions like the Institute for Jewish history, exhibitions and museums in Vienna and abroad.
Peter was born in Vienna and grew up in the 3rd District, at that time British occupation zone after WW II. His school years were spent in Krems, the gateway to the Wachau Valley, and he graduated at the local Piaristengymnasium before studying law at the University of Vienna. Immediately after University, Peter started his own business as an art and antique dealer and gallery owner. The gallery was located in Krems and specialized in applied arts (in particular for Austrian silver and porcelain from the 17th - 19th centuries) and Austrian paintings from the 19th and 20th centuries. He participated for many years as an exhibitor in the prestigious Austrian Art Fairs in Vienna and Salzburg. 25 years in the arts and cultural sector have been followed by years as an entrepreneur in Vienna in the field of financial consulting and communication training. Now he is back to his old love - the world of art and culture, and is very pleased to be able to inspire all of his guests and friends with his passion for the finer things in life.
Jan is a true European cosmopolitan: born in 1988 to a polish family in Oslo, Norway, then educated in a French Lycée, and graduated from an English IB, he never truly belonged to one place. With an unending curiosity for cultures and history, Jan was inspired to study Art History at the University of Oslo. After graduating, Jan set out to explore Europe and experience all the fantastic art and architecture he had spent years studying. The best way to do this in a sustainable way was to become a guide. Between 2011 and 2016, Jan travelled and worked in almost all major tourist destinations in Europe, and America. In 2017, he moved permanently to Vienna and made the city his new home. Here he became an official state-licensed guide and has since then welcomed and shared Vienna’s great stories with thousands of people.
