Palace of Dreams

The villa was built by the famous Ringstrassen architect Karl Freiherr von Hasenauer from 1882 until 1886 at the behest of Emperor Franz Josef, who presented it to his beloved Sisi, Empress Elisabeth. The Empress used it as a place for retreat and called it her “Palace of Dreams”.
