Silver Collection, Imperial Aptmts, Sisi-Museum


A tour through the former Court Silver and Table Room, the Imperial Apartments and the Sisi-Museum at the Vienna Hofburg offers unique insights into the imperial household, the culture of dining at court and the private life of the imperial family.

At the Imperial Apartments you can view the office of Emperor Franz Joseph as well as the living room, bedroom, salons and the private rooms of his wife, Empress Elisabeth, who has long since become a cult figure. A part of the Imperial Apartments is the Sisi Museum, where Elisabeth’s private life is at the centre of the exhibition: her rebellion against court ceremony, her escape into a beauty cult, her obsession with being slim, athletic performance, and effusive poetry. Among the highlights are numerous personal objects once owned by Elisabeth as well as the most famous portraits of the beautiful empress.

All tours are offered as private tours. >>Fees
