„At home in the heart of the city“
The Servitenviertel, part of Vienna's 9th district, is one of the most popular and most beautiful residential areas
in Vienna. Besides a great variety of restaurants and bars to hang out, here you will find a variety of cultural activities and also enjoy the museums, theatres and galleries.
The name of the district dates back to 1639, when the Servitenkloster was founded. Worth seeing is especially the Pietà on the altar of pain built in 1470. Once this was an area of several islands that were separated from the side arms of the then unregulated Danube. The people made a living mainly with fishing and shipping.
Freud, Sigmund Freud
Also Sigmund Freud lived and worked in this neighborhood. His apartment and practice
"Berggasse 19" became a museum (about 7 minutes on foot) and gives an initial insight
in his life and work.
-> Sigmund Freud Museum
Theatrical performances (also in English) from a variety of programs can, among others be attended in the Theater Center Forum "Theater Center Forum", the "Schauspielhaus Wien" "Schauspielhaus Wien" and the "International Theater" "International Theatre"
