Habsburg Carnival in Madonna di Campiglio
The splendor of the Court of the Emperor Franz Josef and of the Princess Sissi liven up Madonna di Campiglio during the Habsburg Carnival.
At the beginning of its history as a famous alpine resort, Madonna di Campiglio could benefit from a really “royal” launch when in the last decades of 1880 hosted the Habsburg Imperial Court and the European aristocracy in 1889 and in 1894.
Above all,the Elisabetta di Wittelsbach Princess – the famous “Sissi” - and the Francesco Giuseppe Emperor left lively and deep memories during their stays in Campiglio and in the valley, where they were used to walk along the Brenta itineraries with the local alpine guides and to hold receptions in the halls of the “ Des Alpes alpine establishment”.
Madonna di Campiglio offers a “revival“ of those atmospheres from more than 20 editions with the historical evocation of the “Habsburg Carnival of Madonna di Campiglio”.
During this event people can meet the Habsburg Court in the heart of Campiglio with hussars on horseback and ladies in constumes, or they can just tasting some Viennese pastries and dancing waltz in costume of that time in the famous Salone Hofer.
