Hofburg Complex, Vienna

Austria 1010
Tel: 43 1533 7570
view web site ›'s insider take:

The Hapsburgs ruled from this palace in the center of the city from the 13th century until the empire's demise in 1918. Governmental offices (including the Austrian President's) still reside here, but the Imperial Apartments, the Sisi Museum (devoted to the life of Empress Elisabeth), and the Imperial Silver Collection (which includes the 100-foot-long gilded Milan Centerpiece) are all open to the public. The chapel hosts the Vienna Boys' Choir each Sunday morning (book ahead), and across the courtyard, the Lipizzaner horses perform at the Spanish Riding School. The horses can be seen at their morning exercises between 10 am and 12 pm. The Collection of Arms and Armour, the Collection of Ancient Instruments, and an extension of the Austrian National Library are all housed in the "new" (1913) addition that encircles Heldenplatz.

Open daily from 9 am to 5 pm.
