Daily activities will include museum visits (Crime Museum, Sigmund Freud Museum, Torture Museum etc.), guided tours (Concentration Camp Mauthausen, Vienna City Tour, United Nations, Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, correctional facility, US Embassy) and visits of exciting locations ("Third man" sewer tour, Viennese Coffeehouse, Prater amusement park), just to name a few.
