Bad Ischl, Oberösterreich, Österreich
  • Suitable for groups

The k.u.k. court gardener Franz Rauch built a two-story cottage in the Tudor style for Empress Elisabeth between 1856 and 1861 in the park of the Kaiservilla using marble from the mountain "Untersberg" (near Salzburg). Originally, the cottage served as a breakfast salon for the imperial family; currently, changing exhibitions that make reference to the region Salzkammergut and the House of Habsburg are on display.
In the Capital of Culture Year 2024, works by the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, in which he refers to earliest Chinese dynasties and archaeological finds from the Hallstatt period, create a fascinating encounter between two worlds.

In the former tea house of the empress the exhibition program focuses on Sisi and the House of Habsburg, court cultures, the history of fashion and lifestyle, and the phenomenon of summer freshness. In addition, the topics nature and landscape, sun and light as well as salt mining are dealt with with an annually changing focus. The rich holdings of OÖ Landes-Kultur GmbH form the basis for this.

In 2021, “Dirndl stories” will be told in the Marmorschlössl Bad Ischl.

April and October: daily 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
