Summary: Hungarian film on the arrival of Kaiser Wilhelm II by train for a state visit to Vienna, 1912.
Description: A coach takes Emperor Franz Josef, with Prince Eugen in a second coach, to the station along a route lined with cheering people. At the station they wait (Franz Josef is wearing his German field marshal's uniform) for the train to arrive. Wilhelm emerges from the train and the two monarchs embrace.
