Description

Delve into the Sigmund Freud Museum and uncover the intimate atmosphere of the Freud family home, where the revolutionary ideas that transformed the world of psychology were born.


Step into the former residence of the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, and discover the intriguing world of the human mind. Avoid the queues and enter the iconic Berggasse 19, the most famous address in Vienna, where Freud lived and worked for nearly five years. Walk in the footsteps of Freud and his patients, using the same entrance that they once did, and make your way to the mezzanine where the Freud family's private quarters await. The meticulously preserved rooms offer a genuine experience, tracing the birthplace of psychoanalysis and showcasing the various facets of Freud's life, both personal and professional. Marvel at the rare artifacts, including special printings, first editions, and presentation copies, which provide insight into the development of Freud's groundbreaking theories. Explore Anna Freud's adjacent living and practice rooms, where she combined psychoanalysis with pedagogy, and uncover the private life of Freud as a family man and his early career as a young physician and neurologist. As you navigate the museum, a newly-built staircase connects all floors, recounting the history of the house and its occupants, including the tumultuous period following Freud's expulsion, marked by Nazi violence. A poignant section of the gallery is dedicated to Freud's exile in London, alongside his closest family members, as well as the tragic fate of his sisters, who fell victim to the Nazi regime. Enter Freud's former office, now home to the permanent exhibition "Hidden Thoughts of a Visual Nature," featuring a curated selection of conceptual art from the Sigmund Freud Museum's collection, including works by renowned artists such as John Baldessari, Joseph Kosuth, and Susan Hiller. Conclude your visit with a stop at the museum's shop and café, where you can browse through the carefully curated book and gift selection, indulge in an authentic Viennese coffee, or savor the unique Sigmund Freud Original beer, brewed exclusively in Vienna.
