Imperial Tour

At home with Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife Elisabeth

On the Imperial Tour you’ll first explore the apartments of Franz Joseph, whose private rooms were furnished with an astonishing lack of pomp, and the suite occupied by his famous wife Sisi with its beautiful textile wall hangings and upholstery. Immerse yourself in the extravagant grandeur of the Great Gallery, the exotic charm of the ‘Chinese Cabinets’ and the magnificence of the Hall of Ceremonies.
