Elizabeth married the Emperor of Austria when she was sixteen years old. Her youth, background and home life provided none of the qualities needed to fulfil the role of an Empress at the Habsburg court of Vienna. Her husband equally lacked the necessary qualities or skills to support her against the constant pressure of her over-bearing mother-in-law, the Archduchess Sophie, who sought to control and influence their lives.


Travelling and her passion for horse riding became the principle activities by which she could escape. One of her sisters, Marie Sophie, had married into the family of the King of The Two Sicilies and she and her husband were briefly the Monarchs until deposed by Garibaldi in 1861. This led her to also lead a peripatetic life around Europe socialising with many of the royal families and nobility.


In 1873 a big international exhibition was held in Vienna and our Prince of Wales (the future King Edward VII) visited it and whilst in Vienna met the Empress and talked to her about horses and hunting. He told her about the hunts held in England and encouraged her to visit during the hunting season.

Sisi’s Road leads to many places which played a significant role in the life of Elisabeth, born in Bavaria into the House of Wittelsbach and lovingly called “Sisi” in her childhood and youth. Through her marriage to Emperor Franz Joseph I of Habsburg, she became Empress of Austria which included rule over much of modern-day Italy. Only a few years later she was also crowned Queen of Hungary. The unconventional Elisabeth, especially fond of horseback riding and traveling, was long considered the most beautiful woman of her time.

Sisi’s Road is a European route leading to castles and cities which were a part of the monarch’s life. Its highlights are recommended for individual tourists as well as groups: large cities, castles, monuments, museums, gardens and parks.

When the German TV-magazine HÖRZU presented “The most beautiful dream roads in the world” in 2003, Sisi’s Road was among the 12 touristic routes and one of four in Europe. Today Sisi’s Road leads to Bavaria, through Austria and Hungary, since 2004 through Italy to the Adriatic coast, and since 2008 also to Geneva in Switzerland where the life of the Austrian Empress and Queen of Hungary ended in 1898. But Sisi’s legend lives on …
