    A unique experience, must see in Vienna! To visit Freud's office, even without his couch is very inspiring! You need to arrive early, just after the opening hour, or it will get very crowded.  more »

    interesting Museum in what was the home and studio of Freud. Unfortunately many original pieces remained in his place to escape, but the Museum is full of photos, details about the life of the character and also copies of the letters of the various protagonists of his life. The audio guide is invaluable!

    It's not really a Museum, this apartment where Freud lived before he moved to London. Audioguide in Russian is, if you are a student then you will discount a very interesting place for those who are familiar with creativity and personality of the father of psychoanalysis!

    I am from Hong Kong China, please allow me to leave my personal experienced comment in Google map too about my second major, psychology, especially about Mater Sigmund Freud, in Chinese in order to get his knowledge to be as common as in Europe over my Chinese world community. 按心理學家弗洛伊德的學問, libido的對焦就是死亡。所以如果一個人她對女性沒有出現上癮行為,應該叫做libido活躍,那你是人的創造力和動力,很重要的精神來源。如果他不活躍,那麼就會去了死亡。當然沉迷的時候就成了另外一回事。很典型的例子,比如說冬天的時候衣服穿得密密的少數民族的女生,我們會感覺到漂亮,那就是libido。跟色情沾不上邊,色情只是氾濫了。

    It's a good place if you are new to the genuineness of Sigmund Freud. It's a good window to getting to know him and his great work. But if you already know and read books by Dr. Freud then you may find the place lacking of information. Your curiosity is not really met with the right answers. Visiting the library needs prior permission.

    Sigmund Freud's home and workplace for some 50 years! All his belongings, the furniture and artifacts are gone, but a hat, a walking stick and a suitcase with his initials SF in the evocative entrance room. Freud took the famous couch with him when he fled to London. Though there's ersatz in the form of a couch made by the artists Franz West. The audio-guide is a worthwhile companion. There's always an interesting temporary exhibitions, too. But, to be honest, for one of the most influential intellectuals that has ever lived, the museum is a bit small and quite disappointing nonetheless! Before Sigmund Freud moved into the new building in Berggasse 19, it was the house of Victor Adler's family. Downstairs, where the Kornmehl butcher shop used to be there's nowadays a showroom for contemporary art.

    Not a bad museum for Freud fans. It was a bit crowded, but very interesting. I recommend checking it out if you have time and are interested in Freud.

    Love this place. But I genuinely think that there can be a better introduction to his theories. More focussed on his personal life. But interesting place to visit when in Vienna.

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
