  • 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!

  • 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 used to be ersatz in the form of a couch made by the artists Franz West. In 2017 the couch is represented by an artwork by architect Hans Hollein.. 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.
  • Great place if you are interested in biography of Freud. Also there is a Cafe but it is rather expensive. There is also a text guide on Russian English French and some other languages, so it is very easy to get info even if you don't know German
  • Very cool, especially when supplemented by a visit to the London museum to see Freud's possessions. Staff were super nice. Only need an hour or so for the whole place. I especially liked the parts about his family members and home life. I'm sure if the Austrian government gave some money to this place it could be much better.
  • Interesting place but not very informative. There are a lot of photos but I can find them in Google. There are a few original things (Freud's stick, mirror and chair) but nothing special. Audio guide is set of poor facts which you can read on Wikipedia.
  • this museum is very interesting. you can visit a famous man's life like Freud from very short distance.

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.
