Went on Friday and could not get in. Writing this to warn others to check the web site- it has proper hours- my fault for not checking and listening to people who obviously didn't know. (The Jewish Museum is nearby.)

Thrilled to have been able to attend Friday night service. A most memorable experience. Wonderful cantor and choir. Be aware that ID is required in order to enter.

This beautiful synagogue is tucked away in the Jewish quarter and you would not know from the outside what it was. It was the only Synagogue to survive WWII in Vienna - be prepared for security at the door. The interior has been restored and...More

There are 2 tours each day, except at Saturday I would assume, at 11 am and 2 pm. It is 5 Euros entrance fee and you need to take your passports. This is a very old and beautiful synagogue with a great history which will...More

We have never been to that synagogue over the High Holydays. There was no charge on Shabbat! This is a big synagogue with almost no congregation on a Shabbat. My guess is that you would have no trouble gaining a seat and... More
