Finding this place was difficult after exiting the subway station; I couldn't see any of the brown plates that in Vienna point to attractions. Once we got to the place, weirdness ensued: people standing at the door, not sure how to go in or simply passing by to take a picture. We had to wait on the stairs because when... More

Ring the door bell to enter as this still looks like a private apartment from the outside. It's just like arriving for an appointment with Dr Freud! Lots to read and a family film that shows the Freud family life. Worth a visit if you want to read and get a feel of Freud as a person

Not only is this the exact location where Freud invented psychoanalysis and treated patients, it's also the heart of a family deeply affected by the Nazi invasion of Vienna. Freud's family life is incredibly interesting and it's amazing to see the exact location where his children were born, lived and had to give up when the Nazis invaded Austria.

It is a perfect piece of scientific history - such a contrast to the Beethoven's place, here obviously pple put a lot of thoughts, resources and care into the collection

The place unfortunately has no atmosphere. The apartment is barely empty. The majority of exposition consists of Freud's letters and their translation hanging on the walls plus some photoes and only a few Freud's things. I would expected something more and left the museum disappointed. You can google all that information for free, no need to pay 8-10€ for entrance!

People that are fond of Freud's work might enjoy to see his apartment where he lived with his family and the joint-apartment where he had his practice. There is not much to see besides few picture and some left over objects that he did not take to London when escaped in 1938. The place is nice, well done and there... More

It is the apartment, where Freud used to live and work. Therefore, it's not so big. There are rather photographs or small objects such as his pipe, card holder, some pieces from his antique collection etc. 'The Couch' is in London museum, so do many other his objects. He had to immigrate to London because of the Gestapo and they... More

I studied Psychology so I couldn't NOT see this place. it was a sort of pilgrimage for me; and quite emotional, weirdly. There is not much to see, just his apartment and some of the furniture that he left behind when he fled to London. Some of his hats and a cane hanging in the hallway are quite special. Cost... More

Staying in Serviten Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
Serviten Quarter
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighbourhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighbourhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.
