Visited Hofburg for the IAEA staff association ball in february 2016. It is a breathtaking venue for a ball. There are several larger halls such as the festsaal and he zeremoniensaal but also several smaller halls for a more intimate atmosphere (marie therese app 1-3 and many others). We had an amazing time at Hofburg. If you ever have a... More

I work at this building fairly often and had a chance to see the inside from other point of view than regular people. It's a magnificent place full of history and beauty. I know that there are different museums and numerous events which are held at the Hofburg and I am looking forward to attending them, but for now I... More

A wonderful square in Vienna. A super place for people watching and enjoying the day. This square, like so many places in Vienna, was build on such a grand scale that it doesn't feel too crowded. Even when it is packed with people, you can still enjoy the space.

The Hofburg palace definitely needs a visit. It's a great place to walk around. The museums are supposedly beautiful. I didn't visit them, because I don't enjoy museums unless they cater to a specific hobby of mine. It's a great place to take pictures and learn about Sisi for those who are interested.

It's part 3 of 3 of the Hofburg ticket (you can't buy them separately), together with Silver Collection and Sisi museum. After getting to know about Sisi you have a chance to visit both her and her husbands appartments. The free audiobook gives good info about the insides, but the number of rooms is rather limited (good for 20-30 minutes).... More

Hofburg palace is a must see on many tour guides. One thing to point out is the guided tour of royal apartments and Sisi museum. We did not know much about these royal characters before we went there but the guide and museum was so well organized it keeps your interest for hours and hours. The flow in the museum... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
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.
