For more than 600 years Vienna was the center of imperial elegance and the Habsburg power. From the 13th century to the end of World War I, the Habsburg dynasty reigned over their large, multinational empire from Vienna. The epicenter of imperial power was the Hofburg. Each of the emperors expanded the Hofburg by another new castle.
But there are many other sights in Vienna that are as interesting as the Hofburg Castle itself. In Vienna lived and worked Antonio Vivaldi, Arcimboldo, Prince Eugene of Savoy, Maria Theresa, Elisabeth – Sisi, Franz Joseph, Sigmund Freud, Otto Wagner, Adolf Loos, Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Ludwig van Beethoven, Schubert, Mozart, Johann Strauss and many others. With this guide you can explore all streets, churches, buildings, museums and castles in two or three days.
