An impressive collection of armour and the like but few in attendance presumably because the weather was good. I couldn't drum up a great deal of enthusiasm I was literally museum'ed out ! But what experience I had here I did enjoy - beauriful building.

This is simply and easily the best armor museum I have ever visited. A wonderful t of full suited armors for humans and horses. Be sure to get the audio guide because there no English explanations inside.

This museum was opened in 1935, and it is one of the finest, largest and most valuable collections in the world of decorated armor, saddles and vestments for horses, weapons and ceremonial weapons. It includes weapons and armor from different historical periods, from the fifteenth to the twentieth century, connected to political events, weddings and coronations of the Habsburgs and... More

I'm a big fan of history of war and swordfensing, and I've never seen such collection of armours and firearms. More than 8 rooms (big rooms). So, go and enjoy!

Located within the Neue Burg section of the superb Hofburg Complex, the Arms & Armoury Museum has a massive collection of incredibly interesting, immaculately-preserved items in gallery after gallery of opulent marble halls. Said to be one of the finest collections in Europe, that seemed very accurate to me - I was truly amazed by the nature and exceptional quality... More

The arms and armour are mostly from within the 1500 to 1700 time period, and mostly have some connection with Vienna (one set of Japanese armour being an exception!). Although there was a complementary handheld audio guide, very few of the pieces on exhibit were highlighted in that guide, and the ones that were seemed to have been selected for... More

圧巻の鎧、武具のコレクションを見ることができ、騎士や武具が好きな人にはたまらない施設です。オーストリアのものだけではなく、スペインやイタリア、オランダなどの武具も所蔵していて、じっくり見ていると時間を忘れます。また、エフェソス博物館と古楽器博物館と共通の建物に入っているので、お得です。 There are so many collection of armours and arms. It's amazing! I think this museum is best place for romance fans in Vienna. They have not only Austlian collections but also Spanish and Italian collections. In addition, you can enter the Epesos Museus and Smmlung Alter Musikinstrumente with the ticket of the museum.

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.
