Welcome to Vienna's Imperial Apartments at the Hofburg Palace, the residence and workplace of the imperial family until the end of the monarchy in 1918. Visitors to the Hofburg palace can explore the private and official chambers of Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Elisabeth in the imperial apartments. They lived there together with their children and the entire court.
Enjoy a tour through 24 rooms, starting with the imperial staircase and moving on through ostentations studies, living rooms and bedrooms. The rooms are in the Rococo style, with rich stuccowork and beautiful tapestries from Brussels, chandeliers from Bohemian crystal and tiled porcelain stoves. The furniture is in the Louis XV and Empire styles.
A major highlight of the tour is Sisi's exercise room, where she spent most of her time. The original equipment includes wall bars, and a high bar and rings in the doorframe. Another highlight is the dining room, with its opulently laid table.
