I like visiting old palaces and such, but this was a bit of a disappointment. Very little to see, besides a few rooms that were very interesting, Lots and lots of people even early in the day. A no photo or video ban is applied...More
The Sissi Museum/Kaiserappartementen is as museums should be. The line went pretty quick (we went at 11am). The people who work there were nice.
We took the audioguide, though we were lucky that they were available in a language we spoke (the english ones weren’t...More
Remember to visit this museum during your visit to Vienna to get insights into the rich history and the way the emperor and empress used to live. Lots to see and learn along the way. A free audio guide is offered as part of the...More
The entrance price automatically includes an audio guide which provided interesting extra information as we walked around. The museum is well worth a visit. It gives interesting insight into Austrian history and includes the apartments where the Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife Sissi lived.
The Hofburg Imperial Apartments is last of the trio of museums (see separate reviews for the Sisi Museum and Imperial Silver Collection) found in the complex and entered with a single admission ticket. The living quarters somewhat logically reflect the times of Franz Joseph and...More

The staff was nice and helpful.
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The
Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
