After visiting the Wiener Kriminalmuseum we were hungry as a hunter (I almost bit into a mummy … ;-) ).  So we decided to go to the Schweizerhaus (info at Wikipedia).

The Schweizerhaus is located in the Wurstelprater (amusement park/funfair). After lunch my mum wanted to go for a ride with the ghost train. ;-)

Mine wanted to visit the Wiener Kriminalmuseum (Viennese museum of crime). Her wish is my command. ;-)


The Wiener Kriminalmuseum features the history of crime in the town of Vienna (Austria). A lot of crimes are shown there in detail. Police photos of the crime scene, murder weapons, skulls of the victims, mummified heads and so on. To make a long story short: A place of fun! :twisted:

To be serious: The Wiener Kriminalmuseum is definitely not a place for highly sensitive people. But it’s also not that dreadful. If you don’t vomit during a horror film (I don’t know anyone who does), you can definitely go there. It’s very interesting.

Oh yeah, this is definitely a wallpaper after my fancy. :mrgreen: You can download the Skull below at a resolution of 1600×1200 by clicking on the image.
