Owner description: For centuries the Vienna Hofburg was the centre of the Habsburg empire. Today the palace houses three museums which afford historically authentic insights into the traditions and everyday life of the imperial court: The Imperial Apartments with their original furnishings and decoration, the Sisi Museum with its sensitive staging of the empress' life, and the Imperial Silver Collection which contains a comprehensive range of tableware and other utensils used at the imperial court.

We visited Hofburg Palace in December. We arrived early and, surprisingly, the entrance to buy tickets was hard to find. We finally located it and bought the tickets. This allows you entry into three areas. We especially liked the rooms with all the china/place settings/crystal and the Sisi Museum. The audio guide was helpful.

It was awesome. Full of exceptional paintings, beautiful portraits, luxury old fashion decorations. You can find the footprints of Chinese and Persian culture in the Palace, as well. You start a Journey to find out the lifestyle of the Austrian Imperial family .
Just to save money, I highly recommend buying a SiSi Ticket which includes two more options.

The Palace contains a number of different museums/attractions and I bought a combined ticket that included the Kaiserappartements, the Silberkammer and the Sisi Museum including free audio guide. It takes about 2 hours to get around the 3 of them. All very interesting but different depicting the Emperor's Apartments, the Silver Chamber and a celebration of the Empress Elisabeth's personality respectively.

If you have any interest in history and in particular the Hapsburgs you should not miss it. Personally I didn't know much about them but now I am able to appreciate and understand their lives a lot more.

The exterior of the Palace is amazing.

Hofburg Palace is another great stop in the historical center. Stunning architecture and history associated with it. Absolutely worth a stop.

If you love history this is a must. This is an amazing and absolutely beautiful palace to visit. It is huge and if you take a tour you hear all of the history of this palace. I would recommend a tour and probably pre-booking. We were in Vienna in winter and it was snowing which added to the beauty of the palace and surrounding areas. I highly recommend visiting here when in Vienna. Use public transport to get here or the hop on hop off bus.
