"The Hofburg" Hofburg Tip by lmkluque
Hofburg, Vienna: 29 reviews and 34 photos
Favorite thing: The Hofburg, a magnificant complex collection of buildings that take up about 59 acres and since almost every ruler stopping there has made additions, you can see represented many styles such as Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo. Classicism and the style of the early 1870?s.
Until 1918 this was the seat of government. Now it is a complex of museums recording the life and times throughout it's history.
If you do decide to stop for a fantastic historical experience, remember to take a break and have a sweet at Demel which has it's shop near.
Address: the former winter-residence of the Kaiser
