If you're an amazing fan of Freud then this series of 4 pretty much empty rooms may be worth the €10 entry fee. Otherwise I'd save the cash!

This is a very short exhibition with not that much information about Freud's theories/ideas. There wasn't a lot of information on his life either. Shame as I was really looking forward to this. Maybe worth it if you're an avid fan but not sure it's worth the €10 per person we paid to visit.

What an amazing opportunity to visit Freud's home and office! It was overwhelming for me to be in the same space where psychiatric history was made. The audio guide is necessary to follow the exhibit. I also recommend watching the Freud's family home movies with Anna Freud's descriptions in order to get the feel of Freud's life and the times...

Not very informative about Freud 's theories and a bit dry about his life. Definitely needs more depth. Probably only worth it if you are a huge Freud enthusiast. Not worth the 7+ euros for entry.

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

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.
