My wife loves the Freud, I'm not that fussed by it all. This place is cool, you ring the bell to get in like a punter for some couch surfing and the electronic guide takes you around. 1hr max stay, good for people who know nothing about Freud.

A number of people have commented on the lack of original artifacts, however when you consider the circumstances in which Freud had to leave in 1938 it is not surprising. There are, however, still lots of original pieces donated by his widow, and the apartment was very well photographed in the year he left, as well as countless copies and... More

Entry fee slightly high, but does include an audio guide in a language of your choice. Audio guide was descriptive and informative. The museum was laid out kind of strangely, without really flowing, and it was quite short. Still, very interesting.

It is a simple museum, just a few rooms and very little left from when he fled the Anschluss and the Nazis. Still, you feel connected to Freud and his work and get a sense of how in just a few rooms, in the presence of family, and through his experience with patients, he invented some of the most powerful...

I've studied Psychology for 5 years and been to the Freud house in London. Anyone who has studied Freud or Psychoanalysis will have read about this house. If Freud is the father of Psychoanalysis, this is its birthplace. Not much of the house is furnished how it was back them. But the waiting room where those famous patients sat, and... More

Spend one to two hours here, you will learn something about Freud and his family as well as his career during his dwelling in Vienna. A famous person in both medical and psychology field, did almost his work in a humble apartment. What inspired me was how he took good care both of his family and his career. No matter... More

A lovely calm place. You can feel Freud here as you can in his home in Hampstead. Full of the history of a great great man who changed the world. And you can feel the privacy and intimacy Freud extended to his patients. All his personal affects are not here however. They went to London when he fled the Anschluss.... More

The Sigmund Freud museum on Bergasse is behind the University of Vienna. It is walking distance from the metro station, the name I forget. It is on the Linie 2, not very far from Schonbrunn on the same Linie. The museum is fascinating with a detailed and well-researched audio guide. There is a library and reading room where one can...

Right in the center of Vienna is the old residence and office of the father of psychoanalysis. I wish there was more artifacts in the museum , like the world's most famous couch , but there was mostly pictures . Still, it was very moving being in the building where so much of the research that influenced modern psychology was... More

Sorry but this is just a cash grab. There is only one room in the entire museum that actually has original furnishings. The other rooms have pictures of what it looked like. Seriously? To make matters worse the Gift shop was totally lame. Was at least hoping to get a unique T-shirt, poster, something......but it was just as bad.

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.
