What to expect

A veritable city within a city, this is the architectural complex of Hofburg, the center of Austrian power as far back as 1279, first with a monarchy and later with a republic. Originally, it was a medieval fortress, which was expanded by every Habsburg emperor. Today the complex has an area of 240,000 square meters and consists of 18 wings, 19 courtyards, and 2,600 rooms. It was the imperial court of the Habsburgs until 1918. Today Hofburg is the residence of the Austrian Federal President.


You can visit the Imperial Apartments to understand how the most famous couple in Austria lived: Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Sisi. The discreet charm of the workrooms, private apartments, and reception rooms create a striking contrast with the pomp of the imperial summer residence, Schönbrunn.

Many fans of the princess cannot miss the Sisi Museum, which invites the audience on a journey to discover the many facets of Empress Elizabeth's personality, cultist of her own beauty and intolerant to social inequalities and the restrictions of court.

The Imperial Silver Collection displays priceless objects: sumptuous tableware, magnificent shelves, and very precious tablecloths.
