On our travels around Europe have been visiting various places associated with the Hapsburgs and this is a great visit. An authentic tour of a Villa located in a beautiful spot which really brings the history alive. The park is great for a stroll and coffee and cake on the terrace is perfect.

The Kaiser Villa is located in the centre of Bad Ischl and has a large free car park within easy walking distance. We found the Villa park was quite good value but the villa tour was another 9.50 euro each. We had just arrived before a two hour lunch closure and had to rush up the hill as the last... More

Very disappointed with this villa.Our guide Ms Thomas Cook spoke English at the beginning of the tour to tell us she Wouldn't speak our language during the tour....go figure?There were 16 in the group and half spoke English.Expensive when you can't understand the story of the Kaiser Villa.

Nice guide tour in the villa, a bit expensive to my opinion, 13.5 EUR for person. Is you don't speak german you will be board (the guide speak german and you get a page in your language). The villa is very nice and the park also.

The Kaiservilla is a must when visiting this town. The gardens are lovely but the villa and state rooms worth looking at. One word of note if you don't like seeing dead animals then avoid as there are thousands mounted on the walls. This was wear the declaration of the First World War was signed.

The Kaiser Villa might not look like one of these medieval castles, but is still worth visiting. Some great events have happened within these walls. English tour guide was a little hard to organise, but they happily supplied brochures in English for a self guided tour. So it’s not really a problem. Exposition is good. Another good attraction in the... More

You have to join tour at Villa for visit inside. And no photo is allowed inside the villa. But you can visit those beautiful paintings and historical furniture without boundary. It makes history more real.

I have visited the Kaiservilla last summer but I remember it quiet well.The weather was nice so I thought I would take a walk through the park. And I must say, it was worth it. When you walk up the hill you will have a really nice view over the town of Bad Ischl. It only takes a few minutes,... More
