  • Very interesting private museum. Situated in the Leopoldstadt (District 2). Many detailed documentation with photographs of crime cases starting about 1880 until modern times. Chronologically built up. For historically interested and Criminalistics friends recommended.

  • So, you don't speak German. Deal with it, you are not at home anymore. The museum has put some highlights into English and rest of it, well, they say a picture says a thousand words and it is certainl...  more »
  • We have made leadership the Halloween today with our children and I must say from my side, it was great. First, you must pronounce high praise since it is a non-subsidized private museum and I think it's great that there are people that make such a Museum in this professional way possible. A point which is of course not quite the standard on our tour that was no time pressure on the one hand was (led by over 2 hours), and on the other hand, the very good presentation of individual cases by the junior boss who led our group. After I had already read some reviews me I was initially very skeptical, but it is really worth a visit and interesting if you let it. I would like to enter but also on a few points of criticism. Without a guide, it is very much to read. That can be in our day and age for some already a problem be it gives explicit depictions of violence, is a problem for some people. We're already at the next point. In my opinion unsuitable for children under 14 years of age, has several reasons. Without a guide, much to read, not for the Smartphone generation. On the other hand, the depiction of violence and confrontation with murder and death for many children is simply overwhelming. My two boys (9 and 12) have found cool and interesting that are not so tender string like many others her age. As I said it was very interesting for us, and I would look even once again alone without children. If you go with the right expectations and you can not be disappointed actually.

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.
