Cast your eyes on a racing driver's dream, The 'ArtCar', designed in 2014 by the artist collective Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann. Walk around this artistically styled racecar (a Formula Renault 1.6) intended for a young Ferdinand Habsburg, a promising Formula 1 candidate. There are other artist-decorated vehicles on display as well.
Empress Elisabeth of Austria, better known as Sisi, was Empress of Austria for 44 years, until her assassination in Geneva. Also known as the Lady Diana of the 19th Century, she was the glamorous and beloved wife of Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph. See Sisi's beautiful clothing, carriages and riding accessories, and view never-before-seen personal items as you learn the story of the woman who touched the hearts of millions.
The Imperial Carriage Museum, located in Schönbrunn Mews, contains a collection of more than 60 historical state coaches, sledges, and sedan chairs. The collection include the baroque Imperial Coach and a number of other carriages and artifacts.
Take a stately jaunt through the history of Austria, by visiting this assortment of more than 60 historical state coaches, sledges, and sedan chairs, as well as more than two hundred years' worth of harnesses and livery. Located in the former Winter Riding School, the collection features the richly decorated Imperial Coach used at royal weddings and coronations. Another highlight is the Sisi Trail that showcases the sumptuous carriages of the beloved Elisabeth of Austria, as well as personal mementos such as her dresses and her only only extant saddle.
Also delightful are the comfortable travelling coaches and the charming children’s carriages of Habsburg princes and princesses. Less upbeat, but equally fascinating, is the black funerary coach, used to transport deceased Habsburgs to their final resting place.
TIP: Even when the main palace itself is overcrowded, there's generally room to roam here.
Cancellations are possible up to 24 hours before your visit date.
