The Royal Palace of Gödöllő

THE LAND OF QUEEN ELISABETH

The atmosphere of Gödöllő Court resembled to that of Possenhofen one, where Elisabeth spent her pretty happy childhood. The atmosphere was very intimate in the Hungarian estate. However, Franz Joseph, who came from a rigid and ritual-lover family due to his upbringing, was not used to it. In this atmosphere the spouses got closer to each other because they could spend time together freely on their common passions: love of nature, horse riding and hunting.

THE DAILY LIFE OF THE ROYAL FAMILY IN GÖDÖLLŐ

In Gödöllő, Elisabeth’s daily routine was the following: She got up at six or seven o'clock in the morning, which was followed by grooming, her daily exercises and a bath (she had a daily bath). After that her several-hour long combing and dressing session came. Then she went riding or walking. After having returned, she had a modest meal and read for a while. When she was older and could not ride a horse due to her joint problems, she went for larger walks.She only returned to the dinner when the family ate together.
