The Imperial Villa is one of the most beautiful buildings in Bad Ischl. The villa is located not far from the central part of the city.
The Bad Ischl resort for Emperor Franz Joseph the First has become a special place – here he met the princess of Bavaria, Elizabeth, whom he soon married. As a wedding gift, the Empress Sophia of Bavaria presented the newlyweds a castle, which was later named the Imperial Villa.
The current owner of the castle is Archduke Mark Salvator, who recently opened the villa and the adjacent park for visits. The building houses a museum, where you can observe the emperor's hunting trophies, as well as his personal belongings.
