#1 of 36 in Vienna, based on 4393 travelers plans. Avg Visit: 1 Hour, 40 Minutes.

The Hofburg Palace in Vienna provides an authentic view for the daily life of what was once the center of the powerful Hasburg  dynasty, a family that once ruled the Austria-Hungry empire.  The house of Hasburg was one of the most important dynasties in Europe at the time as it produced some of the kings that ruled Western Europe for several decades starting the 15th century. It also owned the Roman Empire throne during this time which was a significant source for its power.

Today, the Hofburg palace hosts some very interesting museums that offer a unique opportunity to learn about the traditions and history of the imperial court. To begin with, start with the Imperial Apartments that hold some impressive royal furnishings and decoration. Then, you should continue and visit the Sisi Museum which is dedicated to the life of the empress. And last, there is the Imperial Silver Collection, a museum dedicated to the facilities and tableware that were once used by the royal members of this great dynasty.

The Hofburg Palace is one of the most educational yet charming and interesting places in which one can observe the life during the era of the great kings that once ruled Europe.

These days, the palace is the official home of Austria’s president.
