This baroque palace was the home of “Sisi,” or rather Queen Elizabeth, wife of Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Joseph. Built in the mid-18th century, it developed over the years into a pleasure palace with sweeping grounds. It was much ravaged after World War II; restoration has brought back much of its former grandeur.
