Description

Elisabeth Amalie Eugenie, Duchess in Bavaria - better known as Empress "Sissy" - married the later Emperor Franz Josef at the tender age of 16
At the imperial court in Vienna she matured into a personality in her own right, which seems to be too modern for the time: despite his love for Sissy, Franz Josef had a lover - and Sissy not only approved of this relationship, but even supported it. She herself sought her salvation in numerous journeys, undertook long journeys both within and outside Europe. In addition, nutrition and sport, especially riding, were top priorities for the empress and she fell into a veritable slimming mania.

On this tour you will see the wedding church of Empress Elisabeth and the Sissy Museum, which was built right next to the Imperial Apartments and displays selected objects from the famous empress's possessions. In the Imperial Apartments themselves, you can take a look at Sissy's personal rooms and take a journey into the past.

Our excursion ends in front of the Sissy Monument, in which a marble statue of the Empress is located, in the Vienna Volksgarten
