Owner description: For centuries the Vienna Hofburg was the centre of the Habsburg empire. Today the palace houses three museums which afford historically authentic insights into the traditions and everyday life of the imperial court: The Imperial Apartments with their original furnishings and decoration, the Sisi Museum with its sensitive staging of the empress' life, and the Imperial Silver Collection which contains a comprehensive range of tableware and other utensils used at the imperial court.

History and such amazing grandeur. I would have wanted to stay longer - there is so much to see. This place needs to be seen more than once.

Dear Sisi! So much extravagance and history. I learned so much about the family and the ties to Europe. So amazing to see! There are so many different areas to visit within the palace; it's a bit confusing when you buy your tickets and it can be very crowded. Be sure to see the carriage house!

This has to be one of the top attractions in Vienna. The audio tour at the imperial palace (Hofburg) provides an amazing amount of information about the royal family. The collections are extensive and the story about Sisi is well worth it on it’s own. The flow at times gets crowded but if you only had 3 spots to visit- make this one of them!
