The Hofburg ticked all the boxes. It was beautiful, informative and on the day of our visit – mostly empty. A big “up” to Austria for having senior discount kick-in at 60. At €6.50 for entrance and audio-guide, it was the attraction bargain of the...More

This is an appealing place to visit though it has a very domestic 18th century feel about it - focussing very much on the Empress Maria Theresa and her huge family. The great Giants Hall is well worth seeing with portraits of the entire family,...More
