    The Habsburgs were based here for over six centuries, from the first emperor (Rudolf I in 1273) to the last (Karl I in 1918).

    It's a little disappointing when you enter a palace and you see about 30 rooms of... plates? Also the Sisi Museum could be a lot less dim and better assembled.

    Sightly confusing: Hofburg Palace actually contains three museums in one. You buy one ticket and will see all three (~12 Euro)
