Vienna Jewish Tour

Half a day of history, traditions and memorials

WITH
Valerie | about the guide

The history of Vienna’s Jewish population is closely linked with the history of the city. Accompanied by a private professional guide, you’ll be taken to the key places and monuments marking this eventful history and remembering the terrible events of World War II. During your 3-hour private tour, admire the luxurious Stadttempel Synagogue fitted into a block of houses hidden from view to avoid discovery; uncover the subterranean remains of the city’s medieval synagogue at the Jewish Museum site at Judenplatz; find out more about Jewish traditions at the main museum site at Dorotheergasse; stop by the Judenplatz Holocaust Memorial that commemorates the victims of Hitler’s tyranny; and, if there is time, hunt out the “stones of remembrance” dotted through Vienna’s 2nd district known as “Matzo Island”.

Vienne

languages :
Français/French, Espagnol/Spanish, Anglais/English

I was born in Salzburg but grew up in Vienna, which I consider my home. I studied theatre at university and then at drama school to become an actress. But, when I had my two children, I decided to become a professional guide and obtained my professional license in 2008. Why did I become a guide? Because it’s a fascinating job – I get to meet people from all over the world, explore Vienna and improve my language skills (I speak Spanish, Italian, English and French). Vienna is a beautiful city that’s a delight share with visitors, from its Jewish history to its musicians and the collection of works by Gustav Klimt at the Belvédère Palace. In my free time, I still perform on stage, I also sing in the Vienna university choir and practice tai chi.
