One encounters a lot of unknowns on this city walk. Interesting stories and details give an insight into “Old Vienna.”
This city walk begins with an outside tour of the Ruprechtskirche – commonly referred to as the oldest church in Vienna.
The most recent terrorist attack in Austria occurred in November 2020 around Ruprechtsplatz in the Bermuda Triangle, with four fatalities. A memorial stone was recently erected in memory of the victims.
Passing the “Hohe Markt” (High Market) you continue to “Judenplatz” (Jewish square), once the medieval center of Vienna’s Jewish community.
From the neighbouring and historic “Platz am Hof”, the route leads over the “Tiefen Graben” to the “Freyung” with the Schottenkloster, which was outside the city walls of Vienna when it was founded.
