This guide is for all visitors to Vienna who are interested in the history of medicine. 15 walks through the city reveal the old medical Vienna: the Fools’ Tower, Freud’s private practice and apartment, the workplaces of many famous physicians, through the old General Hospital, the old university, and the most important pathological museums. Little-known details and anecdotes are included as well as a short history of Vienna and some gourmet tips.
Vienna – medically. One can look at Vienna from this perspective, too. There are traces to be found almost everywhere in the city, as not all that long ago Vienna was, from the viewpoint of medical history, regarded as the "Mecca of Medicine". This book describes a total of 15 walking tours through old medical Vienna. Naturally, these tours are concentrated on the inner city and the ninth district; the former was once the heart of mediaeval Vienna while the Allgemeines Krankenhaus (General Hospital) was established in Alsergrund, as the ninth district is known. However, a number of tours lead visitors outside the city and reveal Vienna from a more hidden perspective, as they lie somewhat outside the beaten tourist path and so have their own special attraction. Finding one’s way around this book – and hopefully also around Vienna – is easy. Having decided on your tour you can orient yourself according to the respective overview map. But, as man doth not live by medicine alone, there are also a number of notes on art history and a list of good cafés and restaurants. This allows the experiences to be digested in an appropriately Viennese way. A separate museum tour is devoted to museums without fixed opening hours, which contain special collections that exist only in Vienna.
