Austria / Vienna
“If you will it, it is no dream” (Theodor Herzl)
A 3-Day Waltz Through Jewish Vienna
Highlighted City: Vienna
The history of this great city can not be fully encompassed without the acknowledgement of
its Jewish history. Such towering Jewish figures
as Theodor Herzl and Sigmund Freud called this city home. Vienna's Jewish Museum and the awe-inspiring Holocaust Memorial (Judenplatz) are tributes to a place in history that is forever apart of the footsteps of this great city. A cultural gem of music, both historically in the notes of Mozart and Beethoven and continued today in the world famous theaters and opera houses.
