"Hofburg, Vienna" Austria Favorite Tip by Sharrie

Austria General: 282 reviews and 255 photos

  Hofburg, Vienna
by Sharrie

Favorite thing: HOFBURG (the Imperial Palace) State Apartments & visit its TREASURY: where Franz-Joseph I and Empress Elizabeth (the very beautiful and noble Sissi) once resided.

Fondest memory: A visit to the Treasury (at least 3 hours are required in order to see most of the display) leave a lasting impression. The insignia of the Holy Roman Empire and the 8th-century Holy Lance, Scepter of Austria are all kept here. An eye-opener for me!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
