Sisi Museum, Vienna

3.9
#9 of 109 in Museums in Vienna
At Sisi Museum find out how the once light-hearted young princess Sisi became an unapproachable and melancholic Austrian empress. Renowned set designer Rolf Langenfass created the exhibit, inspired by Empress Elisabeth's poetry. More than 300 personal items bring visitors closer to this misunderstood empress. See Sisi's parasols, boxes, gloves, beauty recipes, her death mask, and the actual sharpened needle file used in her assassination. Pick up a free audiobook and learn details about Sisi's life: how she was the first in the palace to have a "modern" bathroom and how she loved ice cream. Put Sisi Museum on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Vienna online trip builder .

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
