Judenplatz is an interesting combination of beautiful buildings, several restaurants with pleasant outdoor seating, along with a sobering Holocaust memorial and a museum with the archeological remains of Vienna's original and ancient synogogue. Highly recommend the museum, which is part of Vienna's Jewish museum (other part in another location). In addition to the archeological remains of the synagogue foundation, there are several rooms with artifacts and informative explanations about Jewish life in medieval Vienna. A computer-generated depiction of the area in medieval times was well presented and enlightening. (Seems to alternate showings in English and in German.) At the time of visit, there was a temporary photo exhibit about Jewish life in today's Vienna: I learned a lot from it.
