Jewish Sight-Running: Bei diesem im Burgenland einzigartigen und vielleicht ungewöhnlichen musealen Angebot erzählt Ihnen der Direktor des jüdischen Museums in Eisenstadt Johannes Reiss “laufend” Wissenswertes und Unterhaltsames zu den einzelnen Stationen:

  • the hidden deep in the forest Mausoleum of Ottilie Laschober
  • der ebenso bekannten wie rätselhaft-mysteriösen alten Linde im Leithagebirge “beim Juden”
  • or why the famous Wolf Garten has nothing to do in Eisenstadt with wolves ...

Extended Route: Auf Wunsch kann die Route auch verlängert werden und führt uns dann nach der Station “beim Juden” noch auf die höchste Erhebung des Leithagebirges, den Sonnenberg (484m), der natürlich vor allem auch von zeithistorischem Interesse ist. Dort können Sie übrigens, wenn Sie keine Höhenangst haben, auf dem Aussichtsturm eine traumhafte Aussicht, im Osten bis zum Neusiedler See und Ungarn, im Norden bis Wien, genießen.

What the routes (do not) offer

Starting from the Jewish quarter we are running as part of our route twice about 25 minutes just through the forest, more precisely, by a mixed oak forest, dominated by the grape and turkey oak and hornbeam.

We have to deal with some altitude, but we run almost exclusively in beautiful air and no traffic lights and car exhaust ;-)

We walk in the extensive Leithagebirge and not in a big city, are offered in the usually Sight-Running tours, so do not (at least not those that are commonly referred to as) encounter at every turn sights.

It's on our tours to the combination of (regional) Jewish history, contemporary history and great (sporting) nature.

Jewish Sight-Walking


We are happy etc. also offer the opportunity to visit the above-mentioned stations a little more comfortable for Nordic walkers, hikers. It is everything above, only that the route takes a little longer (about 2 hours). Especially at a sight walking tour can be started at the request not with the Jewish Museum, but in the parking lot Gloriette, bringing the total length of the basic route to roughly 7 kms reduced (including Mausoleum). Please contact us if you are interested.

October 26, 2012, 10.30h
