The Residence itself - the old aristocratic rooms - are definitely worth seeing. Very ornate and lovely. The art gallery, which is a separate admission, is small and not worth the extra money.

A must see, nice rooms, audio tours in multiple languages. If you have not had one in Vienna a Sacher Torte can be purchased next door.

Not outrageously expensive as these tours can tend to be and with an excellent audiophone commentary, the various rooms held such sufficient and various interest not to make this tour monotonous. The various stoves were fascinating and, importantly, also a sight of how they were fuelled, and there were two details I found really intriguing; the first being the 'tuned' balustrade in the main hall and the other was the baroque furniture in the last room together with the oldest of all the stoves. We're all used to seeing extravagant baroque in churches and cathedrals all over central Europe but the benches here (wish I could add a photo) represented the earliest stirring of the 'barbaric' Baroque - just a wavy line to the furniture edges instead of straight ones. Yes folks, that's how it started in such a small way. History of art in action!

Our trade association booked this venue for the formal dinner that closed our 60th annual conference. Dinner was excellent, but the service was amazing. The waiter had choreographed their service so that literally four waiters surrounded our eight-person round table, and on cue from the head waiter each simultaneously. Our group didn't pay individual entry fees but there might be a fee if you came without booking a dinner.

The picture gallery itself was closed so we had an audio tour around the state rooms and follwed it up by an intimate 45 minute concert on harpsichord accompanied by violin. The state rooms were beautiful and we particularly enjoyed the decorative stoves in each room used to provide heating. The frecos and ceiling decorations were beautiful and there was some interesting furniture to see although most was not original. Those who like clocks would also be able to see some rare timepieces. The concert was an extra 15 Euros each but was well worth paying for.
