The little town of Hohenems harboured once - especially in the 18th and 19th century - one of the largest Jewish communities in the area. Their former quarter, the 'Jüdisches Viertel' is getting restored at the moment (2016), so it's not so easy to move...More

Easy to reach and park. The museum gives a perspective on Jewish life as a small and often oppressed minority which managed to survive and thrive for centuries. You will see exhibits on a very small and intimate scale, such as letters, photos, books, etc....More

Hohenems is a beautifully situated, sleepy village that wakes up for its renowned Schubertiade, a distinguished lieder and chamber music festival. An important reason to visit it at any time of year is this outstanding Jewish Museum, an extremely well-presented history of the many rises...More

This museum is very well done. Headphones available in several languages and staff more than happy to be of assistance. Very nice cafe with good food is located in the museum.

Even if you aren't Jewish, a must-see jewel of a museum. We were lucky and went on a day when there was an outstanding guided tour. See other reviews for description etc.

I don't ordinarily go to museums, nor do I stay very long when I do but this museum captured my attention from the first exhibit. There is a self-guided tour with audio in at least 3 languages. I was compelled to listen to everything. I...More
