This is the only remaining synagogue in Vienna. It is in the Judengasse. Make sure to take the tour. The story behind this synagogue is fascinating. Book the tour in advance.

The Synagogue dates 1826 and is still standing on the same spot. You can see the inside only by taking a tour that takes place once a day during the weekdays.

Amazing synagogue to walk into with a very interesting history. If you can provide your passport information prior to Friday night services, you will be pleasantly surprised. The Friday night services with the choir are amazing!

Hi.... You don't make a reservation. You just go there, and at 2pm, you will be allowed to enter. You need ID. There is a charge per person....I think 8 euros, but don't hold me to that.
