The Jewish Cemetery in Währing is a unique reminder of the culture, art, economy and society of Vienna during the Biedermeier period. Ground-breaking developments were underway during the years the cemetery was in use (1784-1879), and their influence can clearly be seen today in the character of the city, the region and, indeed, the entire country.

We invite you to support the association with a donation. 100% of funds received will be used to renovate the cemetery and restore its gravestones. Donations over € 500 may be allocated to a specific purpose of your choice, or you may like to sponsor the renovation of a particular monument, either in memory of a distant ancestor or as a demonstration of cultural responsibility.

Due to the current situation and the new Corona-restrictions we sadly have to cancel the tours on Sunday, November 8.
And it is just as unsure if we can carry out the tours on December 13.

We ask for your understanding and hope to provide alternate dates as soon as possible.

For many years, we have welcomed anyone wanting to help us keep the vegetation in the cemetery grounds under control. The first steps in the clean-up process have been taken, but many more hands are needed to wield shears, rakes and other garden implements to restore our cemetery.
