Empress for a day: experience imperial Vienna through the eyes of the legendary Empress Elisabeth. The royal ambience of imperial Vienna will follow you everywhere you go. You can visit magnificent buildings and museums, indulge in culinary delights and will then honor the evening concert at the Schoenbrunn Palace Orangery with your presence. Royal delight is guaranteed.
During the day, you can take a stroll through the former property of the Habsburg dynasty: Schoenbrunn Palace, the summer residence of Sissi and Francis Joseph, the Imperial Furniture Collection, where splendid furniture of Sissi's era is on display, as well as the Imperial Palace (Hofburg) which houses the Imperial Apartments, the Sissi Museum and the Imperial Silver Collection. All this activity notwithstanding, there is no need for you to lose your royal composure, because you have the choice of visiting these attractions whenever you please – up to one year after the date of issue. After having explored the royal residences, dinner will be served at the Restaurant in the Palace Area.
Your table will be ready for you at the former palace kitchen, which is now a wonderful restaurant with a great ambiance. Dinner is a delectable three-course menu. As a grand finale, you will attend a concert at Schoenbrunn Palace Orangery: the very best seats have been reserved for you to enjoy the concert by the Schoenbrunn Palace Orchestra Vienna. Leaf through the complimentary program containing interesting information about the orchestra and its repertoire and join us at the bar during the intermission for a glass of sparkling wine. As a very special gift, you will receive a Port-Ami for you to take home. Even Sissi would certainly have made good use of this highly practical purse hook...
While Sissi took bumpy carriage rides to get around, Sissi devotees today travel much more comfortably: the package includes two tickets for public transport per person.
Schoenbrunn Palace is the former summer residence of the Habsburg family. It was especially Francis Joseph who had a pronounced liking for this palace. Sissi, who was highly body conscious and athletic, spent long hours in the surrounding gardens riding her horses. Your audioguide visit will take you to the official and private chambers of the palace, where you will discover, among others, the Empress's grooming room and the Spartan bedroom of Francis Joseph.
