Lange Nacht der Museen
Museum Judenplatz focuses on Jewish Vienna in the Middle Ages. Visitors can embark on a journey in time with the numerous objects, excavation of a medieval synagogue, and virtual tour of Jewish Vienna. Guided tours of the excavations and medieval synagogue will be offered on the hour from 8 pm to midnight. You can also visit the exhibition “Wiesenthal in Vienna.” Simon Wiesenthal was one of the most prominent investigators of the Nazi past and played an important role in heightening awareness of a long suppressed capital in Austria’s post-war history. The exhibition offers a multifaceted portrait showing both Wiesenthal’s public face and his energetic activities within the Vienna Jewish Community.
The program at Dorotheergasse includes Hebrew courses for young visitors in the Atelier (until 11 pm) and tours of the exhibition “Ringstrasse: A Jewish Boulevard” and the permanent exhibition “Our City! Jewish Vienna Then to Now.” Burgtheater members Robert Reinagl and Walter Czipke will provide entertainment with literary and musical highlights on the subject of Ringstrasse.
