What You Can Expect

Empress Sisi Sightseeing Combo in Vienna Including Schonbrunn Palace, Hofburg Palace, Dinner and Orangery Concert

Empress Elisabeth (Sisi) of Austria

Your Vienna sightseeing combo includes the following features. Simply pick up your vouchers at the Schonbrunn Palace Orangery, and then begin your Sisi experience! (Please note: You do not have to do everything in one day; the dinner and concert take place on the day you select when booking, but your vouchers for the palaces, museums and collections are valid for one year after that date.)

Schonbrunn Palace
Explore the former summer residence of the Habsburgs, where the athletic Empress Elisabeth spent much time riding horses and enjoying other summertime activities. With the self-guided audio tour, visit some of the palace’s rooms, including Emperor Francis Joseph’s bedroom and Sisi’s grooming room.

Hofburg Palace
Another former home of the Habsburg dynasty, Hofburg Palace (also known as Vienna Imperial Palace) dates back to the 13th century and is today the seat of the Austrian president. It houses the Imperial Apartments, the Sisi Museum and the Imperial Silver Collection, all of which you can visit. Admire the ceremonial rooms and residential apartments used by Francis Joseph and Sisi, and discover what life was like at the Vienna Court. At the Sisi Museum, browse the many exhibits to learn about Sisi’s intriguing life, including her rebellious side and her devotion to her beauty. Then at the Imperial Silver Collection, be wowed by the impressive array of silver dinnerware that belonged to the imperial family.

Imperial Furniture Collection
Gain insight into how Sisi and the rest of the Habsburgs lived by taking a peek at some of their extravagant furniture. This is one of the world’s largest furniture collections, and it doesn’t disappoint with more than 150,000 pieces from a cradle to a throne. In particular, seek out the exhibition dedicated to the furniture used in movies about or featuring Sisi.

Dinner at Café-Restaurant Residenz
At 6:30pm, your three-course dinner will be served in this elegant restaurant adjacent to Schonbrunn Palace. Your menu may include dishes like Austrian-style beef soup, pork medallions with prosciutto and polenta, and cake.

Concert at the Schonbrunn Palace Orangery
The grand finale to your royal Sisi adventure is a concert by the Schonbrunn Palace Orchestra. From your seat, enjoy music by classical composers like Mozart and Strauss. Doors open at 8pm and the concert begins at 8:30pm. At intermission, toast your Vienna experience with an included glass of sparkling wine, and then enjoy the rest of the performance, which ends at 10:15pm. When the night is over, use your public transport ticket to make your way back to your hotel (Sisi wouldn’t have traveled this way, but it’s faster than a horse-drawn carriage!).

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2013

We enjoy it very much, the person who take care of us at the office was very kind. Nice package for two days.

4 star rating: Recommended December 2013

Was very enjoyable. It was great that we could divide into two days. I wish there would have been a ticket pickup point at the Hofburg, where we would have received the subway tickets to the Schonbrunn. We had wasted a full day on out multi-day pass getting to the Schonbrunn to pick up tickets and then received our to and from subway tickets. The palaces were beautiful with audio guides with great information. The dinner was somewhat disappointing-food was good, but Courtyard by Marriott, wasn't the setting for dinner that I expected. I had hoped for a more Vienna historical setting.
