    We were lucky enough to be alone that day and had a VIP tour, so to speak. On this day we learned a lot and in detail about the history, mainly of course about the time of Sissi and Franz. Our guide was very knowledgeable and guided us through the time very appealingly, it couldn't have been better. Thank you very much for that.

    Die Führung an sich war sehr unterhaltsam, da viele Anekdoten rund um Sisi und ihre Familie erzählt wurden. Allerdings hätten wir uns - auch angesichts des Preises von 38.- Euro pro Person - ein bisschen mehr an Informationen zu Sisis Leben und den historischen Zusammenhänge gewünscht.
