Explore the Empire of Old Austria

Kids love stories of princes and princesses. They love the costumes, the horses, the shiny stuff, and giving imperial commands. In fact, Emperor Ferdinand was reported to have yelled, when he was told that there were no apricots in season for his favorite dish, “I am the king, and I will have apricots!” Sounds familiar, right? 

Let the kids give in to the imperial inclinations as they play in the private garden of an emperor, learn about butterflies at the Schmetterling Haus, discover treasure at the Kaiserliche Schatzkammer, and find Sisi, the runaway Empress.
