Top ways to experience Kaiserappartements and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

We purchased the ticket which included the Sisi Museum, Imperial Apartments, and Silver Collection, and I wish we could have bought only the Imperial Apartment tour. This is the only one worth the time and money. If you go during summer, you will be very hot in this place. Still no pictures allowed, so that they can sell you postcards at the end. Nickel and dimmers be damned!

You can get a combination ticket for the Sisi museum and the tour of the royal apartments or you can do them individually at a slightly higher cost. This is a very good tour of the royal apartments. It is somewhat similar to the one in Schonbrunn so you can either do them both or choose one.
You could easily spend 1/2 a day or more in the Hofburg.

The state apartments are where Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Elizabeth lived and worked during the winter months. The tour provides an insight into their lifestyle and habits and also provides a glimpse into the etiquette and protocol.

This is a must see if you are interested in imperial history.

Included in the Hosburg palace tickets.
Visit Duration: 30 minutes.
The importance of this part of the complex is to understand the personalities of the Emperor Franz Joseph and the Empress Elizabeth.

The areas open to public are just a tiny part of the entire complex. This area includes 24 rooms. Emperor Franz Joseph and "Sisi" lived here with their children we of the family had their own apartments or suites in one of the numerous palace wings.

The rooms are in the Rococo style, with magnificent chandeliers made from Bohemian crystal.

The tour begins in the rooms where the Emperor Franz Joseph slept and worked, and takes you through these rooms:
Audience waiting room, The audience chamber, Conference room, Emperor study room, His bedroom, Large and small salon.

The work ethic and sense of responsibility that guided Franz Joseph throughout his life are reflected by his office and room.

Then you reach Empress Elisabeth's Apartments that include her sumptuous Living Room, widely regarded as the prettiest of the Hofburg's many rooms and serving both as a living room and bedroom. Among sisi's apartment you can visit Her sitting room / bedroom, Dressing room featuring its own fitness equipment, like two rings hanging incongruously under a doorway, Lavatory, Bathroom, The Bergl rooms, Large and small salon.

The visit ends at the Dining Room famous for its opulently laid table rich décor and Flemish artwork representing the heroic deeds of Hercules.

Imperial apartments (Kaiserappartements) were the residence of the Habsburg royal dynasty for over 600 years. They lived here practically year around except in summer, when they moved to Schonbrunn Palace.

These lavish, Versailles-type royal rooms are the part of your visit to Hofburg Palace. Smart to buy a combi ticket for 29.90 euros "Sisi ticket" which covers a porcelain/silver collection, a museum dedicated to the troubled Empress Sisi and the luxurious apartments themselves. Your combi-ticket may use in different days during one week since you got it. Ticket includes helpful audioguide (mention your language) which brings the exhibit to life.

Getting there: Enter from under the rotunda just off Michaelerplatz, through the Michaelertor gate.
Length of this tour: visit each of these three museums takes approx 40-45 minutes and depend on people traffic

But our interest for today is how lived here the Emperor Franz Josef, the last ruler of Austria and his wife Sisi, which became an icon in country after her tragic death.
You will see 19 rooms such as official audience room, bedrooms, Empress' dressing and exercise room and the most elegant dining room with its splendidly decked table, etc. Officially is not allowed an any kind of photography in Imperial Apartments, but you can take a photo in silver collection rooms. No regret about my visit this place but to be absolutely honest I liked Schonbrunn Palace more. The big plus that this museum is located in center of old city and if you would like to explore Vienna and its history, you will be in this location anyway.

I like visiting old palaces and such, but this was a bit of a disappointment. Very little to see, besides a few rooms that were very interesting, Lots and lots of people even early in the day. A no photo or video ban is applied most likely to keep the crowds moving rather than for the protection from flashes (a video cam usually never uses a flash). If you need pictures, you can buy a book at the shop at the end of the tour. Actually, the book is rather good with good photos.

The Sissi Museum/Kaiserappartementen is as museums should be. The line went pretty quick (we went at 11am). The people who work there were nice.

We took the audioguide, though we were lucky that they were available in a language we spoke (the english ones weren’t available). it is very interestingly told: interesting information and not too much detail. If the audio guides aren’t available there’s a written brochure.

You can sort of choose your own tempo so that’s nice as well (sometimes it goes a bit slower because of the many visitors).

Even if you’re not a fan of Sissi, I would recommend this museum.

Remember to visit this museum during your visit to Vienna to get insights into the rich history and the way the emperor and empress used to live. Lots to see and learn along the way. A free audio guide is offered as part of the tour. Highly recommended.

The entrance price automatically includes an audio guide which provided interesting extra information as we walked around. The museum is well worth a visit. It gives interesting insight into Austrian history and includes the apartments where the Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife Sissi lived.
