As another reviewer mentioned, it is indeed poignant to see the table on which Emperor Franz-Josef signed the declaration that commenced World War I. As a keen history lover, that sight alone would have been worth a visit, not to mention learning about the conscientious yet austere routine of the Emperor and how he consequently neglected his Queen, Sissy.

A splendid hunting lodge set in Royal Park, with an alpine backdrop. As you enter the Villa you are simple taken aback by the hunting trophies on the walls. The guided tour is even more fascinating, giving you a feel for the furniture, art, sculptures, carving’s and yet again the Kaiser’s hunting trophies. Apparently during his life he accounted for...

This lovely hunting lodge in a vast and groomed park make a great visit for all ages and interests. There's art, stuffed animals, pictures, costumes and furniture galore and the gardens are beautifully landscaped. The history of the era is fascinating and here you see the social context well illustrated by the tour guides (self-guided leaflets in languages other than... More

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

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.
