Wien IX, Berggasse 19. This is the address where Sigmund Freud lived and worked for 47 years before he had to flee from the Nazis in 1938. This place is known worldwide as the birthplace of psychoanalysis - it was here that Freud revolutionized the human self-image.
Extensively renovated and expanded in 2020, the Sigmund Freud Museum, founded in 1971, now displays all of the family's private rooms as well as Sigmund and Anna Freud's practices.
