The DÖW (German acronym) tells a powerful story about fascist rule in Vienna in the 1930s and 1940s, atrocities committed during those years, resistance to the repression, prosecution of Nazis after the war, and efforts to combat right-wing extremism since then.

It is nowhere as extensive as the House of Terror in Budapest, but it is very well laid out showing the horrors and crimes committed by the Nazis before and during World War II.

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
