Austrian Journey on the Path of Empress Sisi (Podcast)

Hear about an Austrian road trip as Amateur Traveler talk to Michael Ocak about riding the Empress Sisi’s Path.

Michael said, “There are multiple paths to Empress Mist. The Empress of Austria and Queen Elizabeth of Hungary is Diana, the princess of the German-speaking world. She was a girl who loved her homeland, she. And at the age of 16 she was introduced to the Austrian emperor. They got married and it was a storybook love story. She became a fashion idol. I think she was beautiful, she. She aged halfway through, a tragedy occurred, and she was eventually killed. There were movies that told the romantic story of the emperor and the young emperor. A new series is coming out on Netflix in September and October [2022] It was filmed in Germany about a romantic love story.”

“There are some interesting places along the route. There are some in Hungary and some in Austria, and each is called the Empress Sisi road. They are basically sites that are part of the story of interesting places to visit. And you have to travel along a road to get there. So it’s not the street. It’s a collection of destinations.”

Michael begins us in Vienna, where we visit a number of royal sites, including the café culture used to entertain those waiting to meet the emperor. We visit the Imperial Crypt, the Hofburg Palace (with the Sisi Museum and the Spanish Riding School) and Schönbrunn Palace.

We visit Hotel Ambassador Connection with Mark Twain and Hotel Sacher ViennaIt is famous for its Sachertorte.

On the way out of Vienna, we visit Hermesvilla, which was built by the emperor for his bride. We also visit the Lainzer Tiergarten and the royal Laxenburg castles.

We stop in Mayerling, famous for the mysterious death of Empress Sisi’s son and wife. We also visit the oldest continuously occupied Cistercian monastery in the world at Heiligenkreuz Abbey.

If 19th century princesses aren’t your thing, Michael also recommends taking a break from the Audi driving experience and at the Red Bull Ring Raceway.

Stay if you can afford it. Hotel Schloss Gabelhofen or later on the trip Stanglwirt Hotel. One is in the castle and the other is where the kids can ride the Lipizzaner foal.

You can see a Baroque library in Admont Abbey. Near Innsbruck you can tour a salt mine, visit the extraordinary Swarovski Crystal World or see the Hofburg palace.

If you return to Vienna from Innsbruck, you can stop at Dürnstein Castle (where Richard the Lionheart is held for ransom) or the great Göttweig Abbey.

An interesting way to go on a journey is to choose a theme, as Michael did in this episode. But whether you’re walking in the footsteps of a princess or enjoying the country’s beauty, should an Austrian Journey be in your future?

Travel to London, England – Episode 813

Hi Chris

I really enjoyed the London show. I live in Southend, one of the gateways
airports mentioned a beach resort with lots of day trips
We also have the longest pleasure pier in the world from London.
Just over 1.3 miles.

My recommendation for London is the Skygarden on Fenchurch St, close to the Tower of the Tower.
Close to London and where I work. Spectacular views like the Shard but
With the free bonus, you just need to book in advance, the bar and
restaurant at the top.
