Eisenstadt

Jewish Museum of Eisenstadt

Unterbergstraße 6, 7000 Eisenstadt

The region’s sovereigns, the Esterházy dukes of Hungary, granted the Jews special protection within the seven districts of Burgenland. Since 1670, the region has been one of the most important Jewish cultural centers of central Europe. Schedule half a day to visit Eisenstadt, the capital of Burgenland.

A tour of the Austrian Jewish Museum recalling this region’s highly unusual history is not to be missed.
