Having read "The Accidental Empress" I especially enjoyed seeing this "Camp David" of Emperor Franz Joseph. The tour was in German but there was an information sheet in the language of your choice so we could follow along. We took a nice walk through the grounds which are a lovely park.

Located right off the main street of Bad Ischl, this fascinating insight in to the Emperor of the Austrian Hungarian Empire should not be missed. Tours are scheduled in several languages and you are provided with a read out sheet in case you miss something. The gardens took a beating during a recent storm but they are beautiful.

Nice place to visit but the guided tour is only in German so you read through a written guide depending on which language. Plan for 3 hrs the cafe is also a nice place to sit on a hot day after waking through the lovely gardens. Worth a visit.

We were totally bemused by the fact that we had to wait until the precise time of the next tour and then (as English speaking only) were handed a card to do a self tour! Apart from that silly start, we really enjoyed exploring this beautiful old Villa. We found it very interesting, especially the history. There were no crowds... More

We visited this place and took the guided tour (which you have to do, as not allowed to wonder round on your own). I think the tour guide must have been good, as she had everyones attention and they all laughed occasionally. However, everyone who couldn't speak German was given a typed card for the tour. This is where the... More

Very nice small imperial Villa in the heard of Salzkammergut. We really enjoyed the tour with a nice guide that knew so much about the imperial family.

Kaiser Villa is a place definitely worth visiting - check for the working time: it is open daily only from April to October. It can be viewed only within guided tour which are only in German, if you're not a group and have organized a tour in English. A pamphlet in your language with description of every room on the...

When I took a tour there were no German speakers in the group but the guide talked on even though no one understood her. Everyone had a card in their own language.

Reading about the Kaiservilla before our trip had primed us for some genuine Habsburg eccentricity, so I suppose that the Kaiservilla didn't let us down on that score, but the experience was all a little underwhelming. There's a fairly hefty entrance fee of €14.50 to the park and villa and in terms of value for money the visit fell short.... More

Maybe it is a little bit to much calling it a hill, but walking to the Kaiservilla is already worthy enough. You will have the chance to cross the river Ischl and take some good pictures on the way to the Villa. Guided tours are available if you are interested in visiting the building itself.
