This is an impressive collection. More robes and gowns than jewels, but some outstanding Royal stuff. Very disorganized layout. You proceed from one numbered room to the next, but not in sequential order. Lots of backtracking necessary. Good stuff, difficult to see.

I couldn't believe I was staring at the real deal! The treasures are amazing and pristine, and you have as much time to wander around and stare at them as you like. You can even take pictures! Such a welcome change from the cattle-herding atmosphere of other royal treasuries I've visited. Definitely get the audio-tour -- it was worth it,... More

The imperial treasure chamber allows the visitor to talk through centuries if inherited (and/or stolen) treasures of the Austrian Empire. Relicts, crowns, tapestries, art and jewelry. Quite a mix. Check out the huge safe door at the entrance,..

Very interesting to see the clothes and jewels people wore back in those times. Lots of history of the rulers. The ceremonial swords were amazing with the engraving on the blades and jeweled scaboards. Great place to see for an hour.

My friends wanted to go in there. I am thankful for having the chance to see so many beautiful and interesting pieces. Especially if you are a Christian (I am not) there is a bowl and a piece of cloth you should not miss. No more explanations, go inside :))

This was included in the Vienna Pass. I was recommended to get the audio guide, which I was told lasted around an hour, but I'd just finished another lengthy audio guide and wasn't in the mood, so I can't comment on how good that was. Before my visit, three items had already been highlighted to me: one royal crown, one... More

I had visited this many years ago and this time took my husband. The interior is quite dim to protect the delicate fabrics on display so you may decide to buy the guidebook. The exhibits range from garments that are 800 years old to the crown of Hungary and the sword of Charlemagne that are1000 years old! There is just... More

This is a spectacular museum of grandeur and great history. Reader boards are in english also. Great to see the finest works of art, clothes and jewelry from that period of time.

If you know your history, Vienna was the center of the Hapsburg Dynasty, and as such, there is an overwhelming amount of wealth and treasure to see in Vienna. One of the great central locales to find these treasures is at the Imperial Treasury. I highly recommend getting the audio tour to learn as much as you can about the... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
