This tour was wonderful. We went at 10.00 am today , October 12th. The synagogue has onjy been open to the public for a year. Hearing how is survived, while all other temples were destroyed is fascinating and incredibly sad. The tour was factual, heart wrenching and uplifting with hope! One hour of your visit to Vienna which should never be missed.

Estuvimos allí el 7/sep/2022 con mi marido. El templo es hermoso. Nos sorprende que la comunidad haya sobrevivido luego del exterminio Nazi y que haya judios que quieran seguir su vida aquí. Eso es Fe y tenacidad! Me hubiera gustado saber más del barrio judio antiguo y actual.

C’était une visite absolument géniale. L’histoire du Judaïsme est très riche et permet de comprendre l’Histoire au sens large. La synagogue est un lieu chargé de significations. Une visite à faire absolument si vous résidez à Vienne ou si vous vous aimez l’Histoire. La jeune guide était très bien informée et maîtrisait très bien le sujet. Je me souviendrai toute ma vie de cette visite.
