  • Worth a visit this square and the surrounding streets of the old Jewish quarter, close to the Centre but in a quiet area not frequented by tourists, surrounded by beautiful buildings. . In the Middle the moving monument to the victims of the Holocaust: a library with the door closed, view from inside, with shelves of books closed seen from the side of the pages to represent the end of so many men and on the other hand the invitation to read their lives. Jewish Museum District and the only synagogue not destroyed by the Nazis.

  • Beautiful square in Vienna with a memorial to the victims of the Holocaust. Judenplatc Museum on the square. Here when it was the center of Jewish life in Vienna. The place is quiet, beautiful and sad.

  • Very small, yet remember this is only half the museum complex. The other half is over by the church. Get the Vienna Pass to go into this one. The excavation is amazing.
  • The medieval synagogue excavation is a treat. The Simon Weisenthal exhibition was worth the entrance fee alone.
  • Atmosphere is authentic, great way to send the message of the Holocaust, never forget
  • Not worth the money and time. The medieval ruins are cool, but that's about it. Ten minutes to see the whole thing.
  • The environment of the square is very beautiful and the message of the Jewish Holocaust memorial is something to never forget.
