Memorial Stone for Archduchess Sophie

Bad Ischl, Oberösterreich, Österreich
In 1830, under the encouragement of Dr. Wirer, an avenue to trees was planted on the Esplanade. It was named Sophie's Esplanade, in honour of Archduchess Sophie, mother of Emperor Franz Joseph I. A monument was also erected in her name. Also on the Esplanade, close to the monument, is the house where Emperor Franz Joseph I became engaged to Elizabeth of Bavaria, who was later renowned as "Sisi".

There are around 140 monuments and memorials in Bad Ischl. From these alone it is possible to understand the immense importance of Bad Ischl as a spa, imperial and cultural town.
If you would like more information we recommend you book the "FROM MONUMENT TO MONUMENT" guided tour.
