Any pieces of furniture that could not be accommodated in any of the Habsburg palaces and residences – or had fallen out of favor – were transferred to the Hofmobiliendepot which is located roughly half way between Schönbrunn Palace and the Hofburg. Today the depot is home to the Imperial Furniture collection, a modern, light-filled museum where visitors from all over the world can see selected items from the enormous imperial inventory. The Sis(s)i trail gives fans of the legendary Empress Elisabeth a fascinating insight into the monarch’s personality. A permanent exhibition entitled Sissi in Film features original furnishings from the popular Sissi trilogy starring Romy Schneider. Clips from the movies and background information on the making of the films breathe fresh life into the story. A changing line up of special exhibitions on the Habsburg dynasty and design complete the experience.
