  • A magnificent gate in the Hofburg as a passage to the ambassador Stiege-should not be missing from the inspection program of the Hofburg

  • After a tour of the Sisi Museum and the emperor's room, we went out of the building and passed the Royal Courtyard to the Switzerland gate. The reddish color drew my eye. Switzerland Palace is the oldest division, and the Switzerland soldier guarded it from the name. It was impressive that the picture like the emblem was drawn on the ceiling.

  • In the inner courtyard of the Hofburg is the original main entrance to the palace, known as Schweizertor, or the Swiss Gate. This gate predates back to the Renaissance and its red black and golden colour stands out among the baroque architecture of its surrounding. Pass through the ornately decorated gate and you'll reach the Swiss Wing and the chapel. If you have heard of the Vienna Boys Choir, do drop by on Sundays as my guide told me it's one of the cheapest means of watching a live performance.
  • Singular Porta, the oldest of the imperial palace, dedicated to the Swiss Guards who also controlled the accesses.
