Schloss Hof Estate
The former imperial country seat now provides an atmospheric setting for trips back in time into the fascinating world of the Baroque.
The Baroque ensemble of Schloss Hof Estate extends over more than fifty hectares. Built for the legendary military commander Prince Eugene of Savoy, it was subsequently remodelled and extended under Empress Maria Theresa to become the largest rural palace complex in Austria. A stately residence, elaborate terraced gardens and a tranquil estate farm form an ensemble that offers a unique combination of imperial magnificence and rural idyll. Today it hosts events and festivals for the whole family as well as annual temporary exhibitions.
Special Exhibition: Sisi – Woman and Empress
At Niederweiden hunting lodge – part of the Schloss Hof Estate location – seven rooms will house displays showcasing highlights from the Empress Elisabeth Collection.
The exhibition will thus feature not only objects that have never been on public display before but also present the latest findings of academic research on the empress. With all its highs and lows, Sisi’s life, her extravagant lifestyle and not least her capricious character are still a subject of fascination today.
Sisi’s Son Rudolf
The exhibition at Schloss Hof Estate affords an insight into the life of Crown Prince Rudolf, Empress Elisabeth’s only son. Focusing on his private life,it will examine the formative experiences of his childhood and his political attitudes as well as his intense interest in the natural sciences.
