The most famous neurologist and psychiatrist Sigmund Freud moved in the house in 1891 year and lived there till 1938 when he had to run away with his family to London.
Now there is the Sigmund-Freud Museum in his apartment at the Bergasse 19.
It is opened everyday :
VII-X 9 a.m- 6 p.m
X-VI 9 a.m- 5 p.m.
His Ego and Super-ego aren't here, but many of his items still remain in his former home. You can visit inside for 5 Euro, but I decided to just see where the man lived and move on. I have heard that there really isn't that much to see inside, so thats why I gave it a pass.
Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis, lived and worked for most of his life at Berggasse 19. He was there from 1891-1938, when the Nazis forced him to leave.
The museum is loaded with photos, artifacts, and Freud memorabilia from throughout his life, including his hat and cane.
The museum is open 9 AM - 5 PM (6 PM from July to September) daily and charges admission.
Mr. Sigmund Freud is a famous Viennese personality who after reading some of his books I have come to the conclusion that unfortunately he knew very little about women despite his research. There is however a park named after him in front of the Votivkirche (near Schottentor), the monument in the park reads "The voice of intellect is quiet."
You can also visit his apartment which is the Sigmund Freud Museum, it cost 7 Euros for adults and is open from 9:00 - 17:00 daily. See the webpage below for information and pictures of his apartment in English and German.
Our understanding of human behavior and motivation owes a great deal to the Viennese psychiatrist, scholar, and visionary Sigmund Freud (1856-1939). Freud wasn't born here - he came from Moravia to attend the University of Vienna - but he spent virtually all of his professional life here, emigrating to London only the year before his death, escaping the crushing anti-semitism of the Nazis. It was in this Biedermeyer era building where Dr. Freud lived and practiced, receiveing his patients, observing and deducing from them the origins of modern psychoses.
Doctor Freud lived and worked at 19 Bergasse from 1891 to 1938; the quarters were restored and exhibits prepared with the assistance of Freud's daughter Anna in 1971. Most of the original furniture had been either sold or shipped to London in 1938, but there's enough here to give you the feel that the good doctor has just stepped out for a cigar. Incidentally, Theodore Herzl, the founder of modern Zionism, lived just down the street at 6 Bergasse in the late 1890s. The two men never met, but Freud wrote that he later dreamt about Herzl. Hmmm. . .
One of the best museums in Vienna is the home on Bergasse 19 of the late Dr. Sigmund Freud. He fled this place in the late 1930's (because of Nazi Germany) to live out his final years in London. Most of the furniture are gone (most stuff can be find in Freud Museum, London). The apartment is still worthy of a visit. The museum provide a lot of information about Freud during his life in Austria. All objects and photos displayed in the museum come with plenty of written information. Be sure you got alot of time when visting since its much more to read than look upon. The museum also have a shop.
The apartment was not only his working place where he recieved patients. It was also the home of his family, wife and children.
Sigmund Freud moved into this house, located at Bergasse 19, in 1891 and opened up a practice there that quickly became very popular. He lived in these appartments for 47 years, until he was forced to leave Austria due to his Jewish ancestry. He produced most of his works while still living in Vienna. The museum contains an impressive number of artefacts, including photographs, letters, and first editions of his works, that give a really good insight into the life of this great man, and also a good introduction to his many theories. The furniture of his waiting room has been recovered and is now on display in the very room in which patients used to wait for their appointment. There's also a bookstore in case, like me, you feel like getting better acquainted with his works after having visited the museum. All in all, I thought it was a fascinating place to visit!
Located in Freud's old flat this museum has lots of information relating to Freud. Dont come here expecting to see a reconstruction of his house because there isnt one. The only reconstructed room is the waiting room. The other rooms house items and information of Freud and his past as well as temporary exhibitions which Sigmund would have enjoyed.
in this house freud worked and lived until the nazis chased him away in his 83rd year. attention: the famous couch - his logo- is not in vienna, he had taken it with him to london where he and it were safe.
Sigmund Freud Museum.
This is where Sigmund Freud lived and worked from 1891 until 1938. Here he wrote his Interpretationof Dreams, his case histories and his works on the Theory of culture.
It was from here that Freud and his family started out for their exile in England when they fled from the National Socialists.
This museum has turn the former consulting rooms into exhibition rooms with the original furniture. Also exhibits Freud's life and work documents.
Dr. Sigmund Freud lived and worked in this house. In 1938, following the Anschluss, Dr. Freud was forced to emigrate. His office and private apartment are now a museum. The museum owns the original furniture from his waiting room, and some of his personal belongings.
Have you heard of the great Dr Sigmund Freud? No? Huh? Where have you been all this while? Why don't you go ask your best friend for the answer and see the expression on HIS/ HER face. :-))
Anyhow, let's not get sidetracked. This is the Apartment Building where he (Dr Freud) used to live.
The founder of psychoanalysis lived and worked at this address in Berggasse from 1891 until 1938 when he fled from the National Socialists to London. Many of his famous works were written here and the spacious apartment is now a museum. The waiting room containing original furniture and objects from Freud’s personal possessions has been restored to how it might have looked in Freud’s day; the remaining rooms have been cleared to exhibit drawings and paintings.
The museum is open daily from 9-5pm and costs 7 euros to enter.
...well, the famous sofa is in London as Freud took it with him when he emigrated there. But still, there is plenty to see at the Freud Museum. I recommend your getting one of the audio guide as I found them very informative. The first room is the hallway, then you will see the waiting room for the patients. This room is somewhat recreated to what it looked like in Freud's time, but most of the other rooms are basically empty and show photos and mementos on the walls. Still, plenty of photos give you a good impression of how the rooms look. After the waiting room, you will see the treatment room and the study. The photos there tell you more about Freud's life and studies (the audio guide will explain about selected photos, you can also get a printed guide with explanations of every exhibit). Other rooms to see are those of Anna Freud, the daughter, who also practised in Vienna, and the living quarters of the family, where special exhibits are placed. When I was there, the special exhibit was about the other renters of the house (the house has several apartments), all Jews, and what became of them during WWII. A very interesting and well-documented exhibit. I am not particularly interested in Freud, but still found the museum informative and am happy I went there. I highly recommend it!
