Once home to Vienna's monarchy, Imperial Palace (Hofburg) gives a fascinating look into imperial life through a display of personal items of former Habsburg monarchs.

In the Imperial Apartments, you'll discover the apartments of Franz Joseph and his wife, Elisabeth. Visit the Imperial Silver Collection for a glimpse into the lavish lengths to which the monarchs went to entertain. You'll see about 7,000 relics of the imperial dining culture, such as exquisite kitchen linens, the imperial table, and ornate centerpieces.

호프부르크왕궁은 미하엘광장쪽 구왕궁과 헬덴광장쪽 신왕궁으로 나뉩니다. 보통 왕궁이라고 하면 구왕궁을 말하며, 구왕궁은 예배당, 보물창고, 승마학교 등이 있습니다. 이 왕궁에는 과거 합스부르크 왕가가 거주하였었고, 현재는 대통령의 집무실이 있으며, 국제회의장, 미술관, 박물관, 국립도서관 등도 있어서 정말 볼거리가 많은 장소입니다. 하지만 입장료가 조금 비싸... more »The Hofburg Royal Palace is divided into the Old Palace on The One Side of Michael Square and the New Palace on the Side of Helden Square. The old palace is usually referred to as the Old Palace, and the Old Palace has a chapel, a treasure trove and an equestrian school. The palace was formerly home to the Habsburg royal family, and now has the president's office, as well as international conference halls, art galleries, museums and the National Library. However, if you're not interested in art galleries or museums, there's nothing you need to do inside. It's easy to see the façade of the royal palace.

Beautiful place, beautiful palace, a must visit in Vienna. Austria is a really beautiful country and Vienna is a pearl of it. Every corner is breathing with history and historical events that took place quite some time ago. Hofburg is great and find time stroll around, through and inside this palace. I had amazing experience! Enjoy)
One of the main attractions in Vienna. It has a long history at its back and while it is full of tourists, don't let that stop you from seeing this beautiful part of the city. It is recommended to go in early, to avoid the tour buses that bring up groups of tourists throughout the day.
