By Viator, August 2018

No reviews, be the first!

The 19th-century Empress Elisabeth of Austria—nicknamed Sisi—was thrust into the limelight upon marrying Emperor Franz Joseph at the tender age of 16. Learn about the empress’s independent spirit, much-admired fashion sense, and fascinating, incident-filled life at these Vienna sights associated with the revered Austrian royal. 

Schönbrunn Palace (Schloss Schönbrunn)
This 1,441-room palace served as a summer residence for Habsburg royals, among them the Empress of Austria. Her private apartments, including a salon where she welcomed visitors, her dressing room, a room that most likely served as her exercise room, and the marital bedroom she shared with Franz Joseph, can all be seen during guided tours.

Imperial Furniture Collection
With thousands upon thousands of palace rooms to fill, the Habsburgs amassed a vast collection of furniture, much of it created by skilled artisans and designers of the time. This museum houses furnishings from the royal collection including Sisi’s bed from Gödöllő Castle in Hungary. There’s also a movie-themed exhibit, which features furniture lent by the museum for use in the 1950s Sissi movie trilogy. 

Imperial Palace (Hofburg)
The winter home of the Habsburgs from the 13th to 20th century, the Hofburg palace houses a museum dedicated to the legendary empress. Personal effects including clothing, accessories, and Empress Sisi’s medical chest are on display as well as re-creations that give a fuller picture of the empress's real character. Visitors can also explore the private apartments of Franz Joseph and Sisi, where the royal couple spent their winters.
