Wagenburg, golden carriage

Trailing Sisi

The carriage in which she was introduced as the imperial bride is shown, as are the enchanting carriages of her children, or the breathtaking golden imperial carriage, in which she was driven to her coronation in Budapest; the carriage in which the legendary empress was riding just before her assassination in Geneva is also exhibited. At the end of this series of carriages is the imposing black hearse in which Sisi was carried to her grave.

The only existing saddle of the empress and her splendid black riding outfit can also be seen in the exhibition as well as the train of her bridal dress which was embroidered with real gold and silver. Paintings and unique objects from her personal possessions as well as portraits of her favorite horses are also shown: the empress was considered the best horsewoman of her time.
