The following children’s birthday programme is available in English:

Today I’m the Empress, or the Emperor!
A majestic birthday party with Sisi and Franz Joseph

It’s obvious that the birthday girl or boy must be the stars of the party – where could you experience this better than in an imperial residence? In the Vienna Hofburg all the guests get dressed up as members of the imperial court society, the birthday girl or the birthday boy as Sisi or Franz Joseph. The entertaining programme takes you through the original chambers of the famous imperial couple in the centre of the former capital of the Habsburg Monarchy. All kinds of stories are told about everyday life at the imperial court and you are let into many a secret about it.

Target group – as of 7th birthday
