Imperial Palace (Hofburg)

The Hofburg was the winter residence for the royal family, the House of Habsburg, one of the most important royal dynasties in Europe and who ruled Austria for six centuries. Through prudent marriages, the family managed to also gain Spain, Hungary, parts of France and many other lands. They built many fine churches and residences and rarely finished any of them.

The Hofburg was the Imperial Palace until 1918, at which point the Habsburg dynasty had died out and been succeeded by another. The palace remains the center of government for Austria, but these days, the occupier is a democratic republic rather than kings and queens.

The palace is an amalgam of eras and styles, much of it rich 17th- and 18th-century Baroque. Made up of many wings and square, don't miss the Renaissance wing, Stallburg, where the famous dancing horse, the Lipizzaners, are stabled.
