"HOFBURG PALACE" Hofburg Palace Complex Tip by Hosell

Hofburg Palace Complex, Vienna: 217 reviews and 468 photos


The Hofburg Palace is located in the center of the city.It consist in several impresive buildings,and this complex was never completely finished as originally planned,as a part of the imperial quarter.The diferent areas of the palace feature examples from the entire history of architectural styles from the Ghotic to Neo-Classic.

Right now here you can see a few very interesting museums,and also is next to the palace the National Library.If you want to know a little bit more about the Emperor Franz Joseph and his wife "Sissi" don't mis a visit to the Imperial Appartments or (Kaiser Apartaments).Another nice place to see here is The Spanish Riding School (Spanische Reitschule),here you can see during mornigs some beautiful horse demostrations.
