Description

Explore with me, the Imperial Palace of the Habsburgs in Vienna, the place where Maria Teresia, Francis Joseph, and Sissi lived, in this live-streamed online experience. I will tell you the most important curiosities and reveal the secrets of this palace which has more than 700 years of history. 

In the central courtyard of the palace, we will talk about the Ottoman siege and the Baroque era. In the Heroes' Square, we will see the balcony from which Adolf Hitler proclaimed the annexation of Austria to Nazi Germany. We will see the places where the powers of Europe met to discuss the future of the world after the Napoleonic wars. We will pass in front of the treasure room and the palace of Sissi and Francis Joseph. We will also see the wonderful white stallions of the Spanish riding school, who have a surprising secret that I will reveal to you.

This is a journey through time and into the heart of the elegant capital of central Europe. Live, even if at a distance, the elegant atmosphere of this wonderful city. I hope this experience makes you want to come as soon as possible to visit Vienna!

    I booked a tour (virtual) to Vienna's Imperial Palace of Habsburgs recently!

    The palace is really a site to see and its history won't disappoint!

    One of the highlights of the tours was a very interesting room with a captivating history to it. I won't tell you yet, but you will find out on the tour
