Over many decades and into the 20th century European history was made in the Kaiservilla and Bad Ischl became the shadow capital of the powerful Danube Monarchy. You can see the originally preserved chambers, in which Empress “Sisi” Elisabeth spent her summer months and were Emperor Franz Joseph ruled and eventually declared war to Serbia in 1914 and started WWI with it.
His reasons for doing so he stated in his “To my Peoples” manifesto that was written here. On a 45-minute long guided tour you can experience the special air of past times and you can get interesting and personal information on the life of the imperial family.
