Between Tradition and Avantgarde
Vienna, once a center of European power, reflects the glory of past epochs in its many splendid buildings. The Habsburgs bequeathed palaces, government buildings and romantic parks to today’s much-admired architectonic heritage. In-depth insight into the varied history of the monarchy can be gleaned at the Kaiser apartments, the Sissi Museum and the Silberkammer in the Vienna Hofburg. They offer numerous impressions of everyday life in the Habsburg court. Stately Schönbrunn Palace with its extensive grounds and Schloss Belvedere convey, inside and out, the atmosphere, lifestyle and world outlook of imperial times. Except for Vienna’s landmark, the gothic- style St. Stephen’s Cathedral, it’s mostly baroque and historistic buildings that bring Viennese history to life.
