Walk in the footsteps of Jewish life in Innsbruck
The guided city walk traces the history of Jewish life, starting with the early beginnings in the middle ages, the Shoah up to present day.
A very chequered history in which times of tolerance alternate with times of persecution and expulsion.
The tour takes you to well-known but also unknown places in the city centre of Innsbruck, which
bear witness to the life and fate of the Jewish population.
The changing history of the Jews is traced on the basis of buildings, squares, memorials and commemorative plaques, but also on the basis of individual fates.

- Memorial at the clinic area
- Pogrom monument at Eduard-Wallnöfer-Square
