Book: Die Wiener Hofburg (The Vienna Hofburg)

Read about the Vienna Hofburg from its foundation in the 13th century to the present day.

Six Centuries as a European Power

The Imperial Palace Vienna is one of the largest historical residential complexes in Europe.

It is the most significant profane cultural heritage site in Austria. However, hardly anything was known about it until ten years ago. Therefore, the Austrian Academy of Science decided to carry out thorough interdisciplinary research, the result of which has been published in five impressive books, which let the Imperial Palace appear in a completely new light.

This magnificent volume about the Palace summarises in an unparalleled and compact way the latest findings about the Palace’s history, from when the complex came into being in the 13th century up to the present day. It contains opulent illustrations.

Thanks to Burghauptmannschaft Österreich this information can now be made available to the general public.

The book is only available in German.
