Daily Hofburg Palace & Sisi Museum Skip-the-line Guided Tour
I booked initially for a tour for Wednesday, together with a colleague. However, due to the recovery plan after the Coronavirus pandemic, the access to the Hofburg Palace and Sisi Museum (as well as many other tourist attractions in Austria) was restricted just a day before my visit (the access was only allowed between Thursday and Sunday, until the 30 of June). As soon as the company got aware of the situation, they contacted me via phone and mail. They informed me about the situation and inquired about any free time-frames do I have in my trip so they try and reschedule the tour without interfering with other plans. I only had a single time-frame and the company together with the guide managed to reschedule the tour to that time-frame. I wanted to highlight this, since huge efforts were made, from the guide and company, to manage and fix the situation without interfering with my busy schedule. I don't believe that many people will do those efforts instead I guess that they will offer a refund or to reschedule the visit on another day with a fixed time. After I got aware of the situation and since we were talking about modifications in less than 24 hours, I got afraid that things will not get fixed on time, and I couldn't risk not to visit Hofburg Palace and Sisi Museum during the trip, I bough entrance tickets for the museum directly. Once the guide found out that I bough separate entrance tickets, she talked - on her own initiative - to the museum officials and I got a refund for my separate entrance tickets (which I got denied when I tried to ask). Our guide was Miss. Ute. She is amazing and. An very y passionate expert about Hofburg Palace, Sisi Museum and Schönbrunn Palace as well as anything related to Vienna and the imperial family. We got tons of interested information and highlights that we would have been missed for sure if we were on our own. Regarding the palace and the museum, as the majority know, it is a very majestic place. It is rich with history that can’t be experienced anywhere else. It is for sure a most to visit during any trip to Vienna. At the end, I want to thank the Miss. Ute for all the information and for the wonderful time that we had during the tour. I also want to thank her and the company, for they efforts to fix the situation that I detailed above.

Things to know before you go

  • A must for history buffs, the Sisi Museum is also great for lovers of art, fashion, and design.
  • Since there’s no cloakroom for left luggage and clothing, avoid bringing extra belongings.
  • Tickets are valid for one year, so it’s possible to divide the Imperial Palace into two visits by seeing the ground-floor Silver Collection on one trip, and taking in the Sisi Museum and Imperial Apartments on another visit.
  • The wheelchair-accessible museum is equipped with ramps and elevators, with on-site wheelchairs available for use.

How to get there

A central location in Vienna means the Imperial Palace is easy to reach using public transport. When arriving by underground, take the U3/orange line to the Herrengasse stop. By tram, take lines 1, 2, D, or 71 to Burgring; bus lines 1A and 2A stop at Hofburg. If you have a Vienna City Pass or Sisi Ticket, enter the Imperial Palace through the inner palace courtyard.

When to get there

During the busy summer months, lines begin to form outside the Imperial Palace even before opening hours. To avoid a wait, plan to arrive early or book tickets online; prepurchased admission lets you skip the line at the ticket window. Vienna City Card holders also get to skip the lines.

What Else to See in Sisi’s Vienna

While the Imperial Palace is a great place to start exploring Sisi’s heritage in Vienna, there’s plenty more to see. After you’ve toured the Sisi Museum, head to Schönbrunn Palace (Schloss Schönbrunn), where the empress spent the summer months. Included on the grounds of the Schönbrunn Palace are exhibits on Imperial coaches, furniture, and other Sisi artifacts.
