Description: Leopoldstadt is the second district in Vienna, located in the centre of the city. It is an island divided by the Danube Canal and the River Danube.
In 1625 the Jewish community obtained the right to meet and live in this area, and it adopted the name of Mazzesinsel (the island of Matzo – the name of a typical Jewish bread). A number of synagogues were built, however not one survived the devastating Night of Broken Glass in 1938 during the Nazi era of anti-Semitism that spread across Europe. The persecution of the Jewish community meant that their numbers suffered a huge decrease and only began to recover from 1986 onwards with a second wave of immigration throughout Europe.
However the Jewish traditions are deeply rooted in the area and it is possible to taste typical Kosher cuisine in many different restaurants.
Leopoldstadt is currently a fashionable district with numerous bars and restaurants as well as an important area covered by one of Austria's most famous parks- the Prater. It was formerly used by the Emperor Maximilian II as a hunting ground until becoming a public domain in 1766.
It is also home to the emblematic panoramic big Wheel, the Riesenrad, and the unique Kugelmugel Republic a micro nation that declared independence in 1984 after a dispute between the artist Lipburger and the authorities regarding the construction of a ball-shaped house. The 'Republic' has 389 citizens. The park is also the location of the Prater Museum that has a planetarium.
At number 54 Praterstrasse it is possible to visit the house ( now a museum) that was the residence of the composer and musician Johann Strauss from 1863 until 1870.
The district also offers the possibility to take a pleasant stroll through the Augarten Park, which with its 52 hectares is a splendid example of the baroque style and hosted Mozart's very first concert in 1782, an era in which the park was a famous meeting place for artists and patrons. In 1924 the world famous Augarten Porcelain Manufacturer was established in the former Garden Hall. Its creations are renowned for their delicate and elegant shapes, design and first-class art work.
The district of Leopoldstadt has the advantageous situation of bordering the Danube and provides a unique area of recreation and relaxation that is a true joy to find in a capital city. The Viennese locals are fond of using the area to practice sport, or to eat outside in one of the many pleasant terraces, restaurants and bars.
