Quite hidden little gem of a place, located to the side of the Imperial Palace. Very dimly lit (understandable) but impressive collection of religious memorabilia, jewels, crowns and robes of the Austrian royals. With an excellent Audio Guide, which gives very interesting insights into each artefact, this is a very good way to spend an hour or two. Impressive. Part... More

With an amazing collection of clothing and jewellery throughout the ages, you can only wonder how the royal families must have lived. You can pick up an audio tour that gives a history and explanation of each piece - but you can skip this if you want to just see some Beautiful craftsmanship from the last 5 centuries . I'd... More

I went to the Treasury only to see the crown jewels, but was blown away by the intricacy of religious and knightly robes. Another surprise was the collection of religious objects that has far less golden objects and monstrances than other similar treasuries, but has a selection of very original reliquaries. I agree with the reviewer who said that this... More

The museum offers a collection of the jewelry used by the king and queens in Austria throughout the middle ages until the last emperor. Also in the collection are the religious items that were used for the ceremonies, and the clothes used. Few of the items are very impressing, such as the bowl which believed to be the holy grail,...

Much of the museum is dark to help preserve the many fabrics in the collection so its best to start slow and adjust your eyes. The displays are well presented although some labels are a bit low down to read clearly, well worth the admission price.

This is one of the better museums in Vienna. Just be warned it is a huge collection with some of the best artifacts from the Holy Roman Empire towards the end. Don't be shy about skipping through some of the exhibits. You will have more than enough to see by the time you are done.

OMG...''just few littlethings'' to lost your self for few hours with the glory of the old good times of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and with the magnificent treasures of the Habsburgs. Maybe the most important treasure of the world.

The crown jewels and robes make the most of this display, including old Burgundy duchy and Hungarian heirlooms. For me the most fascinating piece was the crown attributed to Carolus Magnus, which can be seen represented on imperial portraits of later dates displayed in other museums.

The museum is well laid and easy to walk. Some of the objects in exhibition, both religious and secular, are really special and unique. If you are interested in European history, or just wanna see a lot of ancient jewelry and precious artifacts, this will be for sure a one of a kind experience.

A rather small but very interesting museum next to the Hofburg. People interested in History will find here a lot of artifacts linked to the early history of Burgundy and Flanders because the Habsburgs from Austria keep the (Dutch) "Gulden Vlies" (French) Ordre de la Toison d'Or, (German) Orden vom Goldenen Vlies, (Spanish): Orden del Toisón de Oro

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.
