Built in the 19th century by the Empress of Austria (lovingly known as Sissy), the Palace was the result of the Empress’s love of Greek Mythology and hence the palace followed the theme of Achilles.

Following the death of her only Son, the Empress put her mind and soul into getting the palace built. After her death the palace was abandoned during the World Wars and after extensive repairs, today the place is a museum open for the Public.

Highlights include:

  • Chapel
  • Detailed paintings form the 19th century
  • Embellished paintings on the ceiling
  • Majestic central staircase
  • Beautiful painting of the Empress when she was 21
  • The adjoining garden

Anyone who visits the place is sure to think they have stepped into Greek Mythology. The museum is perfect if you truly love art and history, merged seamlessly!
