Now 28, Kampusch still lives part-time in the home, after she bought it to avoid it becoming a theme park for Horror buffs, and she opened the doors to Sunday Night.
"It’s important because I don’t want to have false people in this house” she said of why she doesn’t get rid of the house.
"I don’t want to have a kind of theme park in here."
Priklopil would attach Kampusch to him all day and night as she was forced to sleep with him in his bed.
She was also forced to do all the housework, often holding food as punishment.
"He would give me one carrot for two days or something and then I would have to go back to the darkness... There was no exit for me."
Kampusch says that she eventually learned to feign love for him, and this would see her allowed more freedoms.
Under his watch she was eventually allowed into the garden, and one day, when he was distracted by a phone call, she saw her opportunity and took it.
"I have found freedom in myself and I am very centred now. Lots of people think that such a crime could never happen to them but it isn't true."
