Vienna’s opulent Schoenbrunn Palace, the former summer residence of the imperial Habsburg family, will open its doors to tourists looking to spend the night like Emperor Franz Josef and Empress Sisi. An apartment – once reserved for close relatives of the court – can be booked from April 30 at a starting price of 699 euros ($960) per person per night. The late 17th-century rococo palace was once the secondary residence of the Habsburg monarchy, which ruled the Austro-Hungarian empire until 1918. It is one of Austria’s top tourist attractions and registered 2.9 million visitors last year.
