Imperial Vienna – Capital City of an Empire
This walk takes in all the imperial charm Vienna has to offer. It is like taking a journey back to the days when Austria was one of the leading powers of Europe. Over 600 years, her history was determined by her Habsburg rulers. It is therefore not surprising that one stumbles across reminders of Vienna’s imperial past, no matter where you go. See the Hofburg, the epicenter of imperial power, and one of the largest royal residential complexes in Europe alongside the Vatican and the Louvre and hear how it grew in size with the growing power of the House of Habsburg. The tour includes a visit to the State Rooms and the Sisi Museum.
