The rooms where once Emperor Joseph II drew up his revolutionary programme of reforms, where the Congress of Vienna met and danced and where Emperor Franz Joseph held audiences, now house the offices of the Federal President, the ministers of the chancellor's office and the secretaries of state.
Experience an evening tour through the residential apartments of Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Elisabeth in a particularly exclusive, intimate atmosphere without the usual crowds of visitors.
