The Hofburg was orignially a medieval castle, but today only the castle chapel ('Burgkapelle') demonstrates its medieval past.

The Hofburg was extended to a magnificent residence when the Habsburg's power increased. That's why one can find almost any architectural style, from gothic to art nouveau. Nowadays this enormous complex is home to "Österreichische Nationalbibliothek" (National Library), "Schatzkammer" (Imperial Treasury), and houses a collection of musical instruments, another collection of weapons, a "Museum für Völkerkunde" (Museum of Ethnography) and famous "Spanische Hofreitschule" (Spanish Riding School). Vienna's Imperial castle also houses exotic butterflies in a marvellous art-deco glass house!

Vast "Heldenplatz" (sqare of heroes), situated next to it, is very impressive, too. Equestrian statues of Archduke Karl, who won the battle of Aspern against Napoleon's troops (1809), and Prince Eugene of Savoy, who defeated the Turks, attest to Austria's glorious past.

"Heldenplatz" is more than a square, it is one of Austria's symbols of national identity.

By the way: Sunday Mass at the medieval chapel is an excellent opportunity to listen to the angelic voices of unrivalled Vienna's Boys Choir.

 

 

DAY 07 — VIENNA

Breakfast at Hotel

We meet our Local Guide for Full Day Disposal & to we proceed for The swirling strains of a Strauss waltz are never far away in the Austrian capital, which abounds with elegance and sophistication. This was the seat of the Habsburg dynasty for over 600 years, and their influence is apparent everywhere - from the genteel coffee houses to the Hofburg Palace, a monument to Austria's glorious past and home of the Spanish Riding School. Today's included sightseeing tour introduces you to the many delights of this historic 'city of music', once home to great composers such as Strauss, Mozart and Beethoven and also famed for its grand architecture. See the grand State Opera, the impressive Parliament building and the ornate Town Hall. Stroll in Heroes' Square to view the Hofburg Palace and also visit Strauss House where the famous composer lived from 1862 to 1878. The afternoon is free for you to explore at leisure.

Schönbrunn Palace with its surrounding buildings and the huge park is one of the most significant cultural monuments in Austria. The castle was build to rival French Versailles in Baroque beauty and importance but House Habsburg lacked funds to outdo its rivalling nation France.

In earlier times it served as summer residence to various Habsburg rulers.

Emperor Franz Joseph (ruled 1848-1916), who was born here in 1830, spent the last years of his life entirely in Schönbrunn. In 1918, the palace became the property of the new republic. Due to this historical importance, its beautiful location and its gardens this palace is one of the very top sights in Vienna. Furthermore the entire complex was added to the UNESCO's world cultural heritagelist.

Don't miss out on a tour of the residence itself and a chance to admire the magnificent apartments of Maria Theresia, her sitting rooms, bedroom and the parlour in which 6 year old Mozart used to play for the Empress, as well as the parlours and apartments of Imperial couple Franz Joseph and Sissi. The interior is an orgy of frescoed ceilings, crystal chandeliers, huge mirrors and gilded ornaments. When you are a tad tired after visiting almost 40 rooms bear in mind that you have seen less than 3% of the residence's 1441 rooms!
