Hofburg, or the Imperial Palace, is the imposing white building with the greenish domes. It housed all of Austria's emperors until this past century, and now serves as the office for the Austrian president. It is more popular today, however, for hosting the Spanish Riding school and Vienna Boys' Choir performances. You have to plan ahead to catch the boys or the horses do their thing, but there are numerous museums within the palace complex to entertain those who come across the Hofburg by happenstance.
