The hofburg palace was intended to be the winter palace of the emperor. It was the imperial residence of the Habsburg emperors until 1918. Many new buildings were added into this palace complex over the centuries to demonstrate increased corresponding power of the rulers. Each separate building contains many treasures and one needs a lot of time moving from one building to another exploring each of them. The office of the Austrian President is located in the palace now. There are also many museums in th palace open to the public, like the Imperial Apartments museum (displaying the royal rooms), Sisi Museum (museum of Empress Elizabeth) and Imperial Silver Collection museum (displaying items of imperial dining).
