CLASSICAL MUSIC CONCERT with the Vienna Hofburg Orchestra by car/van/bus transfer
The Hofburg in Vienna is the former imperial residence. The Hofburg Palace complex was built between the 13th and 19th century. Six centuries of construction has strongly shaped the buildingʼs appearance. The different wings of the former imperial residence portray the architectural periods of Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque up to Classicism and the Wilhelminian era. Until 1918 the Hofburg Palace was the seat of the Habsburg dynasty. Almost every ruler had parts added or altered or redesigned and decorated for his family and himself.
