Discover Vienna with Emperor Franz Junior

May we present? This is Emperor Franz Junior - KFJ for short - one of the great-great-great-great grandchildren of Emperor Franz Joseph I, at least that’s what they say. He is 25 years old, studying bobology and happens to live in the 7th Viennese district. However, he also makes use of the ceremonial rooms in Schönbrunn Palace, especially in the spring and summer - obviously, because it’s a really comfortable place for a blue-blooded offspring to live. Where KFJ actually comes from, however, is disputed. Some maintain that KFH’s mother was the great-aunt of the cousin of the unrelated in-law of Emperor Franz Joseph I. But whatever the truth of the matter, Franz Junior’s affiliation to the imperial and royal family has never been rejected or denied to the present day.

We take you with us on a journey through “his” Vienna. Right away, KFJ shows you the best, most diverse and interesting aspects of Vienna on our Facebook channels - all with a fitting pinch of humor, of course!

Win a weekend in Vienna!
