Hofburg Vienna

Mater Dolorosa – Empress Elisabeth in mourning

Temporary exhibition in the Audience Waiting Room
27. November 2015 - 22. May 2016

The subject of the exhibition touches on an important aspect of the empress’s life. Even during her own lifetime she was seen as a ‘Mater Dolorosa’ figure, an image that contributed to the formation of the Sisi legend. But is this image of the restless, melancholic empress always dressed in black in fact accurate? Curated by Olivia Lichtscheidl, this temporary exhibition in the Audience Waiting Room of the Imperial Apartments explores this and many other questions.


In Sisi's footsteps, the Imperial home and household

For many centuries, the Vienna Hofburg was the centre of the Habsburg empire. Three museum attractions provide historically accurate insights into the tradition and daily life at court: the authentically-furnished Imperial Apartments, the tasteful Sisi Museum and the Silver Collection as a comprehensive collection of Imperial utilitarian objects.
The Imperial Apartments, Sisi Museum and the Silver Collection are amongst Vienna's top sights, attracting around 600,000 visitors each year.
