  • 5 euro for a park 18 euro for a vila and photo museum. Absolute waste of money and time. Known from Sissi film, but thats all.

  • The tour includes the emperor‘s office and the desk where Franz Josef signed the declaration of war against Serbia in 1914, which finally evolved into WW1. Very informative, a bit pricey as a whole...

  • Guided tour in German lasts 45 minutes. We missed the 1030 tour, had a coffee at the outdoor cafe, and joined the next at 1115. Laminated notes in English, and several other languages, are enough to give the gist of the Kaiser's villa and his family life. The current (11 June 22 - October 22) Dirndl exhibition in the Cottage is well presented.
  • DERELICT PAST GLAMOUR An old vestige of the imperial glamour. The interior is kept as if the Kaiser and the Empress should arrive any second to sit at the dinner table. The premises are ample and they reflect how once the imperial"blue bloods" lived. The Villa is enormous, but it is in dire need of repairs.
