House of Habsburg
The House of Habsburg tour provides a fascinating insight into the rise and fall of one of the most powerful European dynasties of the last millennium. At the Neue Hofburg, the site of the last residence and seat of power, we present the history of an empire, from the founders of the house of Habsburg to the imperial and royal household of Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Elisabeth.
The history of the Habsburg monarchy alternates between triumph and tragedy. Under this dynasty, Vienna was a center of power and music. One place where all this can be traced in a unique way is the Neue Hofburg, the newest wing of the Vienna Hofburg. This is partly due to the building itself, which is steeped in history, and partly due to the two collections it houses: the Court Hunting and Armory Chamber and the Collection of Ancient Musical Instruments.
Our tour takes you on a journey through the entire history of the Habsburgs from the late Middle Ages to the modern day, past armor that would have been worth the same as a sports car today, a fortepiano that Mozart once played on and the only wax bust that faithfully depicts Joseph Haydn. The tour traverses the corridors and halls through which the ghost of Sisi hovers, as the empress, who was murdered in 1898, never moved into her former apartments.
The House of Habsburg Tour is available in 10 languages (English, Deutsch, français, español, italiano, Magyar, čeština, 日本,中國人, 한국인)
