Empress Sisi Sightseeing Combo in Vienna Including Schonbrunn Palace, Hofburg Palace, Dinner and Orangery Concert
Explore the former summer residence of the Habsburgs, where the athletic Empress Elisabeth spent much time riding horses and enjoying other summertime activities. With the self-guided audio tour, visit some of the palace’s rooms, including Emperor Francis Joseph’s bedroom and Sisi’s grooming room.
Another former home of the Habsburg dynasty, Hofburg Palace (also known as Vienna Imperial Palace) dates back to the 13th century and is today the seat of the Austrian president. It houses the Imperial Apartments, the Sisi Museum and the Imperial Silver Collection, all of which you can visit. Admire the ceremonial rooms and residential apartments used by Francis Joseph and Sisi, and discover what life was like at the Vienna Court. At the Sisi Museum, browse the many exhibits to learn about Sisi’s intriguing life, including her rebellious side and her devotion to her beauty. Then at the Imperial Silver Collection, be wowed by the impressive array of silver dinnerware that belonged to the imperial family.
Imperial Furniture Collection
Gain insight into how Sisi and the rest of the Habsburgs lived by taking a peek at some of their extravagant furniture. This is one of the world’s largest furniture collections, and it doesn’t disappoint with more than 150,000 pieces from a cradle to a throne. In particular, seek out the exhibition dedicated to the furniture used in movies about or featuring Sisi.

The package is great with the Sightseeing Combo of two palaces and dinner and concert. We love the little souvenirs. We had very high expectations on the concert. It was the third concert we attended in Vienna, after the Mozart concert at Musikverein and Mozart and Strauss Concert at the Volkstheatre. Probably due to the venue, the day of the week Monday night or the weather, the performance and the sound effect were not as good as the previous two. We were a little disappointed at the concert.
The ticket agent did not understand our package so we did not get a ticket for Hofburg Palace. Dinner was great. The concert was combination of symphony, opera and ballet is a class act. Highly recommended
Was very enjoyable. It was great that we could divide into two days. I wish there would have been a ticket pickup point at the Hofburg, where we would have received the subway tickets to the Schonbrunn. We had wasted a full day on out multi-day pass getting to the Schonbrunn to pick up tickets and then received our to and from subway tickets. The palaces were beautiful with audio guides with great information. The dinner was somewhat disappointing-food was good, but Courtyard by Marriott, wasn't the setting for dinner that I expected. I had hoped for a more Vienna historical setting.
