Once home to Vienna's monarchy, The Hofburg gives a fascinating look into imperial life through a display of personal items of former Habsburg monarchs. Along with the historical museums, the palace--called the Vienna Hofburg--now houses the president of Austria and offices of the federal government. In the Imperial Apartments, you'll discover the apartments of Franz Joseph and his wife, Elisabeth. Visit the Imperial Silver Collection for a glimpse into the lavish lengths to which the monarchs went to entertain. You'll see about 7,000 relics of the imperial dining culture, such as exquisite kitchen linens, the imperial table, and ornate centerpieces. The Sisi Museum features more than 300 personal items of Empress Elisabeth. Through her parasols, beauty recipes, and death mask, you'll gain an understanding of this often-misunderstood monarch. By using our Vienna day trip planning site, you can arrange your visit to The Hofburg and other attractions in Vienna.

The Hofburg reviews
Beautiful palace. I strongly recommend this place. The tour is complete and really good. You can't miss it! One thing that I didn't like: it's forbidden to take photos.
Still miss Vienna, love that city, everything is so gorgeous. You should visit, I was there for the first time,and I'm going back for sure, amazing city. Beautiful architecture and landscape. Should visit all parks and gardens, so the best time to go there spring and summer so you can enjoy colorful streets 😊
