We visited Sisi museum as part of the Sisi tour..you get to visit her private appartments, her personal belongings- jewellery, clothes, etc. As somebody who grew up watching Sisi movies, i was so looking forward to the visit..audio-guide was helpful as usual! You are allowed to take photos in the cutlery section but no photos or videos in Sisi's appartments😣...they... More

I am not a museum person, but I have heard of Sisi a lot and was intrigued about her life as an Empress, in particular that she didn't want to be one! This museum is great! Gives a great overview of her life, her struggles and her memory. I would recommend the audio guide!

Wonderful approach to this very complex woman, accented by her letters, poems and diary. I felt as if we were walking through her life, seeing her clothes and personal accessories. What a beautiful woman. And mes amis, the dresses proved that her unbelievable waist really was real!

You'll not be disappointed visiting this fascinating museum. It's an interesting look back at not to distant history. A stunningly beautiful women with a sad story. The silver, glass service and the workmanship in her gowns are amazing. As always, make sure you get the audio, which is free.

This museum has an impressive amount of pieces of clutery and dishes of the imperial families, and tells the history of the country through them. After that you get to visit the upper levels and get an idea of the lives of Sisi and Franz Joseph, in a quite interesting and well curated exhibition.

Its a very nice solution for a rainy day in Vienna. At first there the exhibition of the royal silverware and its astonishing and on the second floor (Sisi's floor) you can get an interesting perspective of how the 19th century's royals used to live. The place itself is well organized. For me its one of the musts in Vienna.

If you're entrilled by the story of Sissi and Franz Joseph, you must visit the museum! It's interesting, you can really imagine how their everyday life was. Beautiful rooms and exquisit architecture. Better take audio guide, it'll give you plenty of information.

This museum is very interesting. It has many things to see, not only paintings. The history and architecture of the building is fabulous.

To be honest, why exactly we should be interested in the life and supposed trials and tribulations of a seemingly self absorbed and self indulgent empress beats me, but for some reason this is all about her. The palace itself is awe inspiring, and though the tour is very well presented, it would have been more pertinent to give us... More

Even if not a museum goer, Sisi Museum was quite interesting. Although we skipped the long version of the downstairs china/silver section, the upstairs, which is the Empress Elizabeth's area, was quite interesting. Take the short version downstairs and be sure to spend time in the upstairs area.

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.
