The Vienna Hofburg is one of the largest palace complexes in the world. The oldest parts date from the thirteenth century, but building continued into the twentieth century. The sprawling complex with nineteen courtyards and eighteen wings was once the political centre of the Habsburg Monarchy.
Today the Federal President of Austria and several ministers and secretaries of state go about their official business in the magnificent state rooms. Many important cultural institutions are also housed in the former imperial winter palace.
Come and visit the imperial winter residence and discover how Austra’s rulers once lived.
