Imperial Palace with the Michaelertor

Imperial Palace (Hofburg) and butterflies

Traces of the beautiful Sissi

At the Imperial Apartment and Sisi Museum visitor of all age can find out all about Empress Elisabeth: her beautiful dresses, her fearlessness as a horsewoman, her beauty sectrets and the way that she liked to have her shining long hair styled.

Children's guided tours (in German only, for children aged 6 - 11) finish up with a chance to dress up in truly "imperial" clothes. Check the website for exceptions to the dates at www.kaiserkinder.at

Butterfly House

Take a stroll to the Butterfly House in the garden of the Imperial Palace (Burggarten). Wander past waterfalls and giant trees surrounded by hundreds of free-flying exotic butterflies. With any luck your children might even get to witness a butterfly emerging from its pupa.

Tip: pack a snack and enjoy a picnic in the neighboring Burggarten.
