The Imperial treasury exhibits an impressive collection of garments, jewels and other precious pieces that the house Habsburg collected over the centuries. I found it well worth a visit and can recommend it. Entrance fee was 12,00. It can be paid at the ticket kiosk or out front by credit card. All descriptions are in german and english and I... More

There are more interesting treasure collections out there. This one is just too expensive for what it is. There are also certain labeling issues - in particular, the "holy grail" story is covered in detail on their website but is nowhere to be found near the actual item. I don't really regret visiting this museum, because a lot of the... More

This is a truly remarkable gallery of one of the world's best collection of crown jewels. From sword scabbards made from narwhal tusks to sapphires the size of a child's fist, this is not the kind of thing you can see anywhere. Due to its central location and value of the visit, I'd recommend this to anyone spending more than... More

Not huge, but a high quality collection of state jewellery, ceremonial dress, reliquaries and more. One of the better collections of herald's tunics. The highlights were the richly woven and embroidered 15th century liturgical vestments for the order of the golden fleece - leaving the best until last.

If you are interested in jewellery, than this is the right place for you. Some of the best of the Habsburg monarchy treasures are on display. It is not a big treasury - London is more - but still it is worth to visit.

Being on a limited time window, I wanted to see the museum of fine arts and the treasury, among the most highly rated attractions. So at the art museum, i bought a combo ticket for it and the treasury, allegedly saving me EUR5. Knowing that the Treasury closed at 1730, and that it only took about 1/2 hour to enjoy,... More

Didn´t impress me much... I´ve seen better e.g. in Istanbul, Amsterdam e.t.c. The lightning was very poor which hurt my eyes and I could hardly read the signs due to that...

We went to the Treasury only because we had a 'combo' ticket. Having never seen any 'crown jewels' before, we expected a little more than we got, but the historical gems and garments were interesting. Sometimes it was hard to move around, it was so crowded. And a somewhat small collection. Keep track of where you are with the room... More

Probably not everyone will find it an interesting attraction, but for someone who is into history of costume and jewelry it can be a good place to visit, since the collection includes treasures and clothing items that belonged to Austrian royalty. Some of the exhibits are very impressive.

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.
