The Ringstrasse (ring road) was built in the second half of the 19th century instead of the old city walls. Emperor Franz Joseph had the idea to construct a wide and elegant boulevard like the boulevards in Paris. Majestic public buildings and magnificent city palaces were to adorn the street. The Vienna Ringstrasse is one of the most beautiful streets in Europe.
Hofburg was the imperial residence of the Habsburgs. It is a complex of buildings from different periods of time. Today the Federal President of the Republic of Austria works in the Leopoldine wing. The Spanish Riding School is also located there. You can observe the white Lipizzaners in their stables.
Belvedere Palace is one of the most beautiful baroque palaces in Austria. It is the former summer residence of the famous general Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663-1736). Today the Austrian Gallery is located there. It houses one of the most important collections of paintings from the Biedermeier period. You can admire also the works of numerous Austrian artists from around 1900. The most popular painting there is Gustav Klimt’s (1862-1918) Kiss.
Schönbrunn Palace, the No. 1 attraction in Vienna
The former summer residence of the Habsburgs was originally built by Emperor Leopold I in the 17th century according to plans by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach. Maria Theresa, Emperor Franz Joseph, Empress Elisabeth, also known as Sisi and the last Emperor of Austria Karl I, resided in the palace. In the originally furnished imperial state rooms you get an insight into how the Habsburgs once presented themselves to the world.
With me, your private city guide in Vienna, you will be able to visit rooms in the palace that are not accessible to the general touristic stream.
Schönbrunn Palace is surrounded by an enormous park with flowers, lawns, statues, fountains, an obelisk and artificial ruins. The Gloriette on the hill stands majestically and offers a beautiful view over the city.
