Throughout the tour, our Expert Guide will point out the impressive artwork, intricate architecture, and ornate furnishings that adorn each room and share interesting facts about the lavish court life of the Habsburg dynasty, including Sisi and Maria Theresa. After leaving the palace interiors, we will venture out into the expansive gardens, which are home to numerous statues, fountains, and other architectural features like the Roman ruins and Gloriette.
