Beautiful palace. Lots to see and plenty of history in one place. Very picturesque and lots of information available to read if you wish to.

If you've been to Venice or Versailles etc, this isn't as impressive. The Apartments were interesting but I didn't get the Sisi Museum at al.

It's beautiful but not impressive. Anyhow, you can capture great moments as many as possible! Just spend some time to walk around and see the nice architecture!

The palace in the middle of Vienna has become a museum housing family artifacts, historical information about the family, and a collection of crowns, jewels, and royal garments that are breathtaking. You pay (can be combined with admission to Schonbrunn Palace) but it is worth...More

This place is a historic place with 2 natural gardens. Museum also good and you can spend 2-3 hrs easily and there are some other places nearby this place. I loved this place.

A Palace where one can wander through the grounds free of charge. Stunning architecture. Fascinating story of Sisi, Empress in the late 19th century.

This is one of the most symbolic places in Vienna and one can spend here hours and hours looking at the brilliant architecture and nice environment:)

The treasures on display here are so typical of the wealth of the Hapsburgs and have been so wonderfully preserved they are a joy to view. The displays are amazing.

One of my favorites. The art work was unbelievable, could spend hours and did. The Church on the backside is easy to miss but must see.

I'm just wondering, for anyone that has attended the NYE Ball at the Hofburg from overseas, did you bring a gown and tux in your luggage? Or did you hire them in Vienna? I'm just curious, as I've been thinking about how it might be a tad impractical and cumbersome to try and pack a ballgown alongside bulky winter clothing. Thanks Alyssa

Hello, I took a gown from home in my luggage. Have a great time in Hofburg!
I saw on the official site that they have guided tour every day at 2pm and the ticket for that is about 1euro more. Anyone know how to book this? Because the online ticketing site only list the regular ticket. Thanks.
