One wonders what maternal thoughts passed through the mind of Sigmund Freud as he took his daily walks around the Ringstrasse. Perhaps it’s best not to know. The grand street, built in 1857 by Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria to replace Vienna’s medieval city walls, passes along a number of palatial homes and government buildings, including two museums, the State Opera House, the New Town Hall, the Stock Exchange and more. Its beauty is enough to inspire thoughts in any visitor, though most likely not Freudian.
