All reviews franz joseph sisi museum imperial apartments silver collection audio guide nice piece of history exercise room living quarters beautiful things tour takes on display schonbrunn palace sissi insight emperor empress rooms
I like visiting old palaces and such, but this was a bit of a disappointment. Very little to see, besides a few rooms that were very interesting, Lots and lots of people even early in the day. A no photo or video ban is applied...More
The Sissi Museum/Kaiserappartementen is as museums should be. The line went pretty quick (we went at 11am). The people who work there were nice.
We took the audioguide, though we were lucky that they were available in a language we spoke (the english ones weren’t...More
Remember to visit this museum during your visit to Vienna to get insights into the rich history and the way the emperor and empress used to live. Lots to see and learn along the way. A free audio guide is offered as part of the...More
The entrance price automatically includes an audio guide which provided interesting extra information as we walked around. The museum is well worth a visit. It gives interesting insight into Austrian history and includes the apartments where the Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife Sissi lived.
The Hofburg Imperial Apartments is last of the trio of museums (see separate reviews for the Sisi Museum and Imperial Silver Collection) found in the complex and entered with a single admission ticket. The living quarters somewhat logically reflect the times of Franz Joseph and...More
Unfortunately we found that most of the items in the kaiserappartements were recreations of items, and not the originals. The audio tour gives a bit of insight into the royals who lived here, which is ok, but in my opinion the Schonbrunn Palace tells the...More
If you want to see the imperial rooms you also have to see the silver collection and the Sisi museum. Hence, it is a bit pricey (~13€) if you are not interested in those. (The Sisi museum is okay, the silver collection is impressive at...More
The Imperial Apartments was a wonderful experience, but it was very crowded and, therefore, it was sometimes difficult to stand until the explanation in the audio guide ends.
The staff was nice and helpful.
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.

Seems like most attractions are in the inner center anyway, so completely indifferent regarding distances. More important to check opening hours!!! Second, it depends what you want to see - e.g., only the opera building? or a performance in the opera? a guided tour? Schönbrunn, Prater, Belverde are not that central - however, they are still easy- to-reach. Nevertheless fine weather of big advantage (which is not relevant for treasury or Albertina).
5 days in Austria. Should we do a Day trip to Salzburg (1 Replies)
We have 5 days filled with sightseeing in Vienna and were wondering if we could do a early out train trip to Salzburg and come back the same evening and If this would be adviseable. I read where Vienna has so much to see and we plan on seeing much of it but there are a few things I want to know if we could bypass and instead take a day trip to Salzburg and back. here is what we are considering dropping: Burgkapelle Kaiserappartements Albertin Seems 1/2 the people say stay in...More

Basically, a day trip to Salzburg is easily feasible. A lot of people do that! I'd say that it depens on your time budget you have for Vienna. If you had 4 days, then it wouldn't be a problem at all to take one day off and go to Salzburg. The train ride is 3 hours, if you take one of the first and last trains, you can mobilize 10 hours for sightseeing.
A day at the Hofburg? (4 Replies)
We have all day on a late November Sunday to: first see the Imperial Treasury (already bought ticket with Kunsthistorisches Museum, which we see on a different day) and then all?? which?? of Hofburg Palace Kaiserappartements, Sisi Museum and Silberkammer, Neue Burg Ephesos, Weltmuseum, Musical Instruments and Armour Museums, Michaelerkirche. I am aiming to book to have lunch at the Café Hofburg at 1.30 pm. Are these sufficiently separate that I can come out and have the lunch and then go...More

If you’ve only got the morning then you can’t do all. Either do the apartments, Sisi Museum and silver/porcelain collections or do the three museums of the Neue Burg. Depends which interests you more.
