Owner description: In the middle of Tirol’s Alpine landscape, one is treated to a close-up look at the lifestyle of prominent Austrians of the past, such as Empress Maria Theresa and “Sisi”: Innsbruck’s Hofburg, one of the three most important historical buildings in Austria, was once a favorite residence of the Habsburgs.

“Not bad for a smaller palace”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I'm getting cynical of palaces. You see one, you've seen them all. Nothing special about his one.
It was a self guided tour, with audio phones if you choose, we did not.

“Not a lot to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

There are a few interesting rooms which have been maintained in their original form and the family paintings are worth some time, but there isn't much else to see

“Grand vacation home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

If you've had a chance to see their palace in Vienna and the Schoenbrun, you would appreciate this smaller version. There were carriages to go around the town. Please don't miss Salzburg. The train ride also passes Zee lam see which is romantic with stream rising from the frozen lake.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

A must see tour inside the Imperial Palace, if you been to Vienna or have plan to visit you will love it and already know a little about the Habsburg family
