What’s around Hotel Imperial

Profile: Innere Stadt

Vienna City Centre is a fascinvating and walkable place—an elegant open-air museum where history can be found on every corner. An amble down the Ringstrasse will carry you past the Vienna State Opera, which offers surprisingly affordable tickets; the Kunsthistorisches Museum, which houses works by Vermeer and Bosch; and the imposing Parliament. Hofburg Palace is easily reachable from the center and offers an exciting peek at aristocratic life, while Stephansdom is the most stunning Gothic church in the country. Equestrian lovers should stop by the famed Spanish Riding School, which offers weekend performances.


In Vienna’s best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

The building which is Hotel Imperial today was built in 1863 by Arnold Zenetti and it was intended to be the residence of Duke Philipp of Württemberg and Maria Theresa. The royal family moved to their new home in 1866, but they sold the palace after only five years.

The palace was turned into Hotel Imperial for the 1873 Vienna World’s Fair. Since then, the hotel has housed a multitude of famous people throughout history, such as Charlie Chaplin, Adolf Hitler, Queen Elisabeth II, Benito Mussolini and many others.

The hotel has also been renewed in recent years. Two additional floors have been added to the palace and over 50 rooms have been refurbished. The new additions stayed true to the hotel’s design and they maintain the style of the historic palace while still being fitted with the latest, state-of-the-art technology.
