Description

Sisi is the nickname of Empress Elisabeth (1837-1898), iconic wife of Emperor Franz Joseph, and the face that launched a thousand commemorative mugs, books, postcards and films. In an effort to escape the tragedies that had befallen her, Sisi travelled the world, until she was assassinated in 1898 in Geneva. The exhibition includes numerous objects belonging to the legendary empress, including childhood toys and musical instruments, her watercolour kit, jewellery and lavish outfits.

The Sisi Museum located in Hofburg is a successful presentation of Elisabeth’s emotional worlds. With more than 300 personal items belonging to Elisabeth it reveals the many-faceted image between myth and truth of the empress’ naive and eccentric melancholic personality.

Sisi spends her first night in Vienna in Schönbrunn Palace, the imperial summer residence with more than 1000 rooms. The empress spends many summer months in the apartments on the west side of the baroque palace and later on the first floor there.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • A large model of the Hofburg area from around 1915, including those buildings planned but never built. You get a real feel for the scale and majesty of the complex
  • Her medicine chest (which contained cocaine, then valued for its clinical properties)
  • A replica of the coronation robes she wore when crowned as Queen of Hungary in 1867 and her gown from the farewell ball in Munich held before she left for Vienna. Be sure to compare the elegance and delicacy of the two
  • A full reconstruction of the saloon car put at her disposal by the railways
  • Discover fascinating facts about the incredible life of the beloved Sisi thanks to the museum audioguide as you explore the museum's six rooms dedicated to the Empress
