Item description for Vienna A Doctors Guide: 15 walking tours through Viennas medical history by Wolfgang Regal...
"The streets of Vienna are paved with history of medicine," the famous Viennese writer and journalist Karl Kraus could have said. In fact, an attentive visitor can't move through the city without being reminded by all the street names, historical buildings, monuments or memorial stones that Vienna has been a capital of medicine where students and doctors from all over the world came to learn.
This city guide is meant for all the visitors of this fascinating city, who are interested in the history of medicine. 15 walks through the city show the reader the traces of 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, or the most important pathological museums. Many unknown details and anecdotes are included as well as a short history of Vienna and some gourmet tips and the famous Viennese coffee shops for relaxing.
