Owing to the current situation, both tours and volunteer work at the Jewish Cemetery in Währing will be cancelled on Sunday, 5th April 2020!
Volunteer days give you the opportunity to experience this unique cultural and historical site from a completely new perspective. You will be able to use a variety of gardening tools to clear the vegetation currently overgrowing the gravestones and site. Gloves, shears, rakes and wheelbarrows are provided.
Upcoming volunteer days:
10am to 4pm. Prior registration is not required.
If you happen to have any gardening gloves or other equipment of your own, please bring these along.
• All visitors enter the site at their own risk, and you will be asked to confirm this on arrival (declaration of liability).
• Men are requested to wear a head covering while on the premises.
• Please wear sturdy footwear and suitable working clothes (the undergrowth contains extremely thorny blackberry thickets).
• We may stop work in the event of strong wind or severe weather conditions, depending on the situation and safety considerations.
