An amazing collection

Surprising how interesting it is just to see table settings, china, and other practical items. Very well explained by the posters on each display case.

We have visited quite a few Treasurys and this was the best. The jewels are incredible. The relics they have include a nail from the cross, the spear used on Jesus, a piece of wood from the manger, etc. I strongly suggest you use the audio guide. If you do not use it, you can just walk past something and... More

Part of the Hofburg complex. Gives you a glimpse of the splendour of Austrian royalty, chock full of interesting facts, historical clothes, and billions of dollars worth of treasure. Plan to spend 1 hour plus, the exhibition is huge and the audio commentary is very interesting.

Ok.... 1000 yrs are looking at you but.... frankly there are a lot of clothes and they are not cleraly explained. Some of them are descripted only in German which is very hard to be understood. Some pieces are charming and among them the "real" imperial jewels as well as the "sword of the doom" but you will really feel... More

The exhibition has a few interesting objects, once invested with great material and symbolical value. Now, this objects seemed worthless, so seeing them and laughing at them was a valuable experience for me.

Totally worth a visit. Unbelievable jewels and regalia on display here. Get the audioguide. If you click on every item in the audioguide, you could spend hours at this museum. Lots of detail and information to be had. We went first thing in the morning so it wasn't crowded at all.

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.
