Imperial Apartments, {CATEGORY}

The Imperial Palace was the residence of the Habsburg Emperors until 1918. Today, it is home to the offices of the Austrian president. Parts of the palace are accessible to the public, among them the former Imperial Apartments. The rooms in this part were the private rooms of Emperor Francis Joseph I and his wife, Emperor Elisabeth. She was fondly called Sisi and it's no surprise that the rooms were she lived are called Sisi's rooms. Infact these rooms are major crowd-pullers. They are as opulent as one might imagine, decorated with stuccoed work in rococo style, valuable tapestries, crystal chandeliers and filled with fine furniture. The audience hall and the conference room are also open to the public; the latter was where the Council of Ministers and the Crown Council met.

Imperial Apartments, {CATEGORY}

The Kaiserappartements, on the first floor, are where the emperors and their wives and children lived. To reach the apartments, enter through the rotunda of Michaelerplatz. The apartments are richly decorated with tapestries, many from Aubusson in France. Unfortunately, you can't visit the quarters once occupied by Empress Maria Theresa and now used by the president of Austria. The court tableware and silver are outrageously ornate, reflecting the pomp and splendor of a bygone era. The Imperial Silver and Porcelain Collection, from the Habsburg household of the 18th and 19th centuries, provides a window into court etiquette. The Imperial Apartments seem to be most closely associated with the long reign of Franz Joseph. A famous portrait of his beautiful wife, Elisabeth of Bavaria (Sissi), hangs in the apartments. You'll see the "iron bed" of Franz Joseph, who claimed he slept like his own soldiers. (Maybe that explains why his wife spent so much time traveling). The Sissi Museum opened in 2004 with six rooms devoted to the life and complex personality of this famous, tragic empress.
