Very deep knowledge. Captivating presentation.
I wish it was all in English. Would have preferred to end seated, where discussion could be more focussed.

Wir haben selten so eine begeisternde Führung erlebt. Kurzweilig, gespickt mit spannenden Geschichten.

Kompetente interessante Führung
Dr. Timmermann zeigte große Kompetenz, ließ sich durch kritische Fragen nicht aus der Ruhe bringen und beantwortete diese zwischenfragen sehr ausführlich und überzeugend.

war eine geschichtlich sehr fundierte Führung
Geschichtlich gut ausgeführt und unser Guide wechselte gekonnt zwischen Deutsch und Englisch und wir haben uns vielleicht etwas mehr Information über das tatsächlich damals stattgefundene Leben erwartet.

The guide made everything
We were lucky to have the guide Bridget who is such an amazing person with a lot of knowledge about history. She combined facts with little things to know and made this trip unique.

Great dynamic insightful tour
I thoroughly enjoyed this Jewish Vienna tour. You gain unparallelled insight into the history of the Jews in Vienna, from the Middle Ages until now. The walk covered just a few hundred metres in total but was packed with insightful stories. Tour guide Barbara's passion for the subject gave the tour an excellent dynamic. The tour was bilingual and despite Barbara's effortless switches between English and German slowed it down a little. Overall a really good experience.

so disappointed
I'm sorry but I didn't feel like much was covered at all, the tour started 20 late and there just seemed to be a lot of standing around and no coherent narrative about Jewish life in the city. I feel a bit like I wasted a few hours of a short trip to vienna

Sehr interessant
Super Tour, obwohl wir schon mehrfach in Wien waren, verstand es die Führerin neue Eindrücke und Gedanken zu ermöglichen, das Thema ist natürlich für Deutsche schwer, aber die Tour zeigt, wie es zu dem Wahnsinn kommen konnte und was er bedeutete. Barbara Zimmermann merke ich mir, sie macht auch andere Touren

Outstanding guidebut too short of a tour
We were lucky to have a PhD in History as a our tour guide. Extremely knowledgeable and very articulate in English. Unfortunately the tour was in English and German at the same time which divided her time and attention. Came to realize that, as great as it was, the hour and a half tour is not enough to learn about Viennese Jewish history and culture.

Erfuhr Neues als Ergänzung zu bisherigem Wissen!
Leider waren einige geschichtliche Daten unkorrekt, die vielleicht auch in der Schnelligkeit des Erzählens passiert sind (falsche Namen, zeitliche Zuordnungsfehler). Aber in Summe eine Bereicherung, Wien auf diese Weise kennengelernt zu haben.
