Full description

Discover what was the center of the Holy Roman Empire and the residence of the Habsburgs for over 600 years at the Hofburg Imperial Palace Complex. Join a private guide to explore all 24 interior rooms, and marvel at the Silver Collection and Sisi Museum

During the standard tour, step inside the Hofburg Palace Complex and visit the conference room, the private bedrooms of the imperial couple, the guest salons, and more. Get insight into the court dining culture of the imperial dynasty at the Silver Collection, and admire the valuable porcelain and crystal glasses.

At the Sisi Museum, see over 300 personal items that belonged to Elizabeth von Habsburg. Find out about her cult of beauty and her obsession with being slim and athletic as you look at her dresses, parasols, gloves, and beauty preparations.

Upgrade your standard tour to include private transportation to the Hofburg Palace in an air-conditioned vehicle. Enjoy a hassle-free journey from your accommodation in Vienna, then get taken back to your accommodation after the tour.

Opt for the extended tour to also visit the Imperial Treasury. There, explore one of the biggest collections of artifacts from the Holy Roman Empire and Austrian heritage. Inside, you will find the Imperial Crown, the famous Holy Lance, the Order of the Golden Fleece, and much more.

Alternatively, choose the extended tour with an Old Town walking tour option. Learn interesting facts and legends of the city and see St. Stephan’s Cathedral, St. Peter's Church, and the Column of The Trinity. Wind your way through multiple alleys and discover different areas of the city with your local guide.

    My husband and I were sick of the tiny tidbits of information we’d get from the standard ore-recorded audio guides usually offered so we opted for a private tour and it was absolutely worth it. I learned 500x more than I would have otherwise, and I got to ask questions! It was perfect for us. I still think it is a little pricey for only getting 2 hours, but I wouldn’t choose a standard tour over this. Fascinating information and a very entertaining tour guide!

    It was just a great tour. Our guide Gerard literally knew everything about the Hofburg and Sissi Princess. He was very knowledgeable and, as he admits, he had to pass a very difficult test to obtain a license that would allow him to lead groups in the palace. The whole tour was fun, interesting and very professional. We didn't even stand in a queue as the tickets were skip the line. Very good price / performance ratio. We recommend it to everyone.
