Freud Walking Tour
"Our docent did a fantastic job at bringing Freud's world alive! As a practicing psychotherapist, I had learned a lot about Freud's theories in school, but little about how his familial and social worlds had affected his theoretical development. Our docent gave rich details about the chronology of Freud's life as we saw the places he worked, lived, trained, and taught at throughout the city. This tour was definitely one of the highlights of my time spent in Vienna."
