Sissi was Austria's Diana of the 19th century. Married young to the future emperor, she maintained her strong personality, a fitness fanatic. She also came to a nasty end, assassinated by an anarchist, whose real target changed their travel plans.
The current exhibition gives an insight into her villa in Corfu, with dresses, furniture, porcelain and antiquities. A great adjunct to the Sissi museum in the Hofburg.
Didn't go round the basic collection this time, which is fascinating. The Court used to carry it's furniture around on its travels and many are shown here. Also, development of Viennese style is exhibited with rooms made up in different periods - furniture, carpets, decorations
