The Sisi Museum is small but it has some very very expensive exhibits to see! There are porcelains and personal items of the King's family. Αρκετά μικρό μουσείο με τσιμπημένο εισιτήριο (το 2007 που πήγα νομίζω ήταν 15 ευρώ) . Μέσα έχει κάτι βασιλικά αντικείμενα και στέμματα και πορσελάνες.

The tour was very interesting. You can compare your " knowledge" from films and fairy tails about Sissi. We used earphones so if you just not interested in this part of her life you can just skip it. But there are not so many such this facts. You need about 70 minutes for tour if you read everything reserve 90... More

This was one of my favourite exhibitions in the Hofburg. The more than 300 items on display - many of which were personal belongings of Empress Elisabeth (or Sisi, as she was fondly called) - gave visitors the chance to glimpse into Sisi's intricate and often misunderstood life. The exhibits were designed to fit Sisi's poetry and illustrated well her... More

Strongly recommend the tour. After doing the audio tour for the silver museum, I'm glad we had a real human being to interact with. We learned so much from our guide, and it was very interesting, as I was not familiar with this Austrian Empress. It's a beautiful palace with a rich history.

The Sisi Museum in Vienna is considered to be one of the most beautiful places to visit. And so it is. The place is full of history, the chambers are all luxurious and you can see there the clothes, the table services of the Royal family, but also the gifts received from other Royal families. After the visit you will... More

The quotes on the walls tell her story best. Poor free-spirit Elizabeth (Sisi) trapped in a gilded cage for her adult life, ends up getting murdered. Best painting of her is with her dog, gray and black tones, with a spot of light on the tip of her shoe.

Regardless if you are a fan of Sisi's or not, I recommend this museum to anyone who is interested in the lifestyle of the Austrian-Hungarian royalties of the 19th century. You can visit it together with the Silver Collection and the Royal Apartments. It is however no must in Vienna! If you only have 1-2 days is this wonderful city,... More

I had never heard of Sisi, or the Empress Elizabeth of Austria and Hungary, but found the exhibition interesting and absorbing. There were load so visitors the day we went but that did not spoil the experience. The parallels with Diana, Princess of Wales were evident - both very young women caught up in the stuffy world of royal courts... More

Wonderful insight into the opulent lifestyle of the Austro-Hungarian ruling class. Focus is mainly on Empress Elizabeth and her "troubled" life. Hard to feel sorry for soemeone who lived such a life of luxury though. My 17 year old daughter enjoyed the tour, but my 15 year old son was bored to tears!

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
