The inside story

Built in the 13th Century, the Hofburg Castle was originally a Medieval fortress and expanded over the centuries to become the beautiful castle we know today: a symbol of the Austrian culture and royalty. The most recent part of the Palace was added at the beginning of the 20th century, and the only remaining part dating back to the Medieval Times is the Chapel or Burgkapelle. The Palace itself was home to some of the most powerful monarchs in Europe such as the Habsburg dynasty and kept expanding as did their power in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. For centuries, the Hofburg Palace has been the Imperial Palace in the heart of Vienna and the principal winter residence, Schönbrunn Palace being the summer residence. Today, it is the official seat of the Austrian President and an iconic architectural landmark that no traveller should miss.
