600 Years of History

February 11, 2013

600 years of Austrian history is what you'll find when you take a private guided tour of the Hofburg in Vienna. Home to the Hapsburg emperors from the 1200s to the early 1900s, this gargantuan palace includes sections built in sequence over the years, with everything from a treasury to a theater to a chapel and beyond. You'll encounter a mix of architectural styles as well, as your guide explains the differences between 13th century Swiss style, Austrian renaissance-era style, baroque style, and several others. As you meander through the complex, you'll also be treated to a wide variety of superb fine art on display. By the end of your tour, you'll feel as if you have just walked through over half a millennia of European history, and had a wonderful chance to experience the depth and complexity of those periods of the past.
