The House of Habsburg tour provides a fascinating insight
into the rise and fall of one of the most powerful
European dynasties of the last millennium.
At the Neue Hofburg, the imperial residence that was never to be occupied, we present the history of an empire, from the founders of the house of Habsburg to the household of Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Elisabeth.
The story of the Habsburg monarchy is one of triumph
and tragedy. During the heyday of this dynasty, Vienna
was a centre of power and music.
This is vividly reflected in the Neue Hofburg, the most recent tract to be added to the Vienna Hofburg, on account not only of the history of the building itself but also of the two collections it houses, namely the Imperial Armoury and the Collection of Historic Musical Instruments.
