"What a treat to stand in the middle of this magnificent, huge, ornate dome. From here you take a few steps to be in some of Viennaís most wonderful tourist attractions, all centered around Vienna Hofburg. This massive, historic complex was once a royal residence and you would be best to pick up the brochures to be sure you donít miss the grandeur all around you. From this regal dome you can enter the Spanish Riding School, the Sisi Museum and nearby the absolutely amazing Imperial Chancellery Wing which houses the Silver and Table Room - the Imperial Silver Collection. We were treated to 7000 pieces on show of the 150,000 pieces in the collection. Believe me when I tell you this is the collection which most remains in my memory of anything Iíve seen in Europe. In the 1300 m2 we roamed through many rooms with absolute treasures, set behind glass, of everything a royal family would have used for diverse, grand banqueting occasions. The Sisi Museum centers around the daily living of the Empress Elisabeth. Here you find the personal items of Sisi and a story of a life which was assumed to be charmed and privileged but her story shows all was not well, for her personally, in her reign. You will need a couple of hours in the Silver and Table Room exhibition which follows in to the Sisi Museum. We went to an evening show of the Spanish Riding School and our ticket determined we enter through another door, not from the dome. We climbed steps to the top story of this magnificent, old Vienna building. This is the oldest classical dressage riding school in the world; for 430 years horses have been showing the elegance and harmony of rider and horse. The dome is elegant, historic and architecturally attractive and all the tourist attractions you access from here are most truly worthy of your time when in Vienna. "
