  • Skip the line and visit the Hofburg imperial palace and the Sisi Museum
  • Walk through the rooms of the former imperial apartments of Empress Elisabeth and Emperor Francis Josef
  • Visit the Augustinian Church, the famous Habsburg wedding church

On this tour, you will visit the Hofburg imperial palace, for a guided tour of both the Sisi Museum and the Imperial Apartments. With origins dating back to the Middle Ages, the Hofburg palace grew exponentially between the 16th and 20th century and up to today still counts 18 buildings, 19 courtyards and over 2500 rooms.

Where once the Habsburg imperial family used to live, work and party, a world of politics, gossip and history opens its doors as a UNESCO world heritage site museum. Meet your guide in the heart of Vienna at Albertinaplatz (look for the green umbrella!) and start your tour by walking through Vienna's city center towards the imperial palace.

Discover details about Empress Elisabeth’s story as well as her daily life and routine both in Vienna as on her travels. Forget about tv shows and fiction! Join this walking tour and hear about the real life of Empress Elisabeth of Austria-Hungary, also known as Sisi.

During the short walk, visit the church where the Habsburgs got married at (even Marie Antoinette, who was born and raised in Vienna!), see the stables where the famous Lipizzan horses live at and cross the main courtyards of the imperial palace.

After the visit of the palace, the tour will end in the stunning Volksgarten, one of Vienna’s most popular picture spots.

  • Show your smartphone ticket to the guide at the meeting point at Albrechtsbrunnen, at the corner of Albertina, opposite of the Opera
  • Your guide will be holding a green umbrella

Tour guide was passionate and expert. Tour was way too large and crowded. Long waits were annoying and insensitive. Bathroom breaks required 5 minutes after tour start delayed all. It’s why I never travel on group tours …, NEVER.
