Sisi - Austria's Enigmatic EmpressThis Tour is suitable as a walking TourThis Tour is ideal for school parties
Life behind the Walls of the Imperial Court

The Hofburg Palace was the hub of Habsburg power. But it was also the little-loved home of Emperor Franz Joseph's beautiful yet eccentric wife, Empress Elizabeth, or "Sisi", as she is still affectionally known in Austria. Touring the Sisi Museum with its plethora of Sisi memorabilia and the imperial State Appartments of the Hofburg once occupied by Elizabeth, we shed light on the myths and legends surrounding the fairy-tale princess turned reluctant empress whose assassination in Geneva by an Italian anarchist immortalized her forever. We also visit the former Court Church of St. Augustine, where she made her bridal vows, and the Imperial Capucine Crypt, her final resting place.
