History of Medicine Part I: The subject of the walking tour is the history of the old medical science in Vienna Language: German. Available as private tour in English, French, Italian and Spanish. The book (in German) by Anna Ehrlich on the above subject as well as the guided walking tour are dealing with health, fear of life, illness and hope for healing, doctors and non-medical practitioners and their therapies, religious faith in God and the consequences of the period of Enlightment. You will be informed about methods of treatment for common people, the cures of orthodox medicine and quackery. Up to the 19th century doctors and patients were almost helpless when confronted with illness or injuries irrespective of academically trained healers or non-medical practitioners. The situation changed with modern achievements in medicine such as antibiotics, narcosis and aseptics. It had been a long way to go. Follow us on this road and learn about an aspect of Viennaĺs history which so far has been reprehensibly neglected.
