This is one of the best displays of Crown Treasuries. You will walk through a line up of rooms filled up with Austrian Imperial jewels and clothes. Ticket is a bit pricey, but worth it. Some of the items go back to 10th century.

This treasury is an extensive collection of jewels and regalia from the Hofburg's collection. It borders on excessive for a day's visit. However, if you spend time on the displays that interest you with the audio guide and skip the narratives on the ones that do not and ably pause to take in their beauty, this treasury can be tackled...

I've been to a few of these and this one is the best displayed treasury museum. Even the clothes which typically bore me where displayed Ina. Very eye catching manner than made me stop and read the signs about them. Expensive ticket but very worth it. The royal family was doing it right!!

We visited the treasury in October. There was a crowd of people outside but they turned out to be a tour group waiting for their guide so we were able to walk right in. The gift shop was closed for inventory so no shopping when we were there. Lots of interesting exhibits. We tried to buy a combination ticket for... More

The imperial treasury of Vienna is a must see. The collection is beond imagination. The audioguide gives you plenty of information. The only irritation are large guided tours with a loude voiced tour guide.

The crown jewels, robes, ecclesiastical and secular treasures and more all under one roof are quite a site to see. Opt for the enhanced audio guide that will give you more information. The difference in cost is only 3 euros for the audio guide. The exhibits are beautifully arranged and presented. You can spend an hour or you can spend... More

I loved the collection of crowns, jewels, furniture, clothing and other imperial items and I found the Napoleonic connection quite interesting. I had a sad incident while buying a ticket however that really got me angry. A local man just jumped from behind and while I thought he would just ask a question he just wanted to buy tickets taking... More

The treasures here is fantastic to see in real life! Several crowns , with lots and lots of jewellery, and other effects from the empire and the church. So many precious stones ect, and so so many working hours in all of the pieces. Amazing in so many ways

The Schatzkammer can be done in a relatively brief period of time, unlike the Arts Museum or Kunsthistorisches that can easy take the better part of a day. If you are going to see both of these a combination ticket is available for both plus the Neue Burg that houses the musical and military treasures.
