Hermesvilla and its collection


The Hermesvilla in Vienna is a palace located in the Lainzer Tiergarten, a former fenced-in hunting ground for the Habsburg nobility. Emperor Franz Joseph made Empress Elisabeth a present, in the hope to keep her in Vienna more often. In a five-year construction period, architect Carl von Hasenauer created this exemplary building for many romantic country houses of the bourgeoisie. The museum mainly shows what life was like for an emperor and empress through the preserved parts of the original furnishings as well as many personal belongings from the imperial couple's possessions, paintings, photos, plans and documents.
