Forty Rooms – forty fascinating stories from three centuries…
Taking in the exquisite rooms from the time of Maria Theresa, the Grand Tour extends and complements the Imperial Tour program.
With their avowedly luxurious character, most of the rooms are also notable for their chinoiserie and East Asian decoration and furnishings, in particular the Blue Chinese Salon and the Vieux-Laque Room, which follow the Hall of Ceremonies.
The Vieux-Laque Room was turned into a memorial room following the death of Emperor Franz Stephan. The Porcelain Room is followed by the Feketin Room, given its name by Maria Theresa, which became known shortly after the end of the Monarchy as the Millions Room on account of its precious rosewood paneling. The Gobelin Salon is hung with exquisite Brussels tapestries. The tour concludes with the so-called Rich Room, where the only surviving bed of state from the Viennese court is displayed.
The Grand Tour is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
