Some of the most famous artifacts of European royalty are at display here. Museum itself is a bit old-fashioned: there are just the items and thats it. The story - and route which to follow in the treasury - you have to work out by yourself.

you keep asking yourself over and over: I wonder where they keep the good stuff. Truly mediocre even with a personal guide. The Sisi Museum is far far more interesting and informative.

The "Schatzkammer" is a somewhat hidden treasure which should not be missed by tourists in Vienna. The richness of the displayes and their historic significance have to be seen to be appreciated. Allow sufficient time to be able to read the excellent discriptions of the exhibited treasures - its rewarding!

For me, this was one of the highlights of my trip to Vienna. The Imperial Treasury of Vienna has many purported religious artifacts and interesting royal jewels and clothing. Napoleon married a Habsburg after his divorce of Josephine and this museum has items to reflect that union. Another interesting find was the Crown, the Sabre and other items of Charlemagne.... More

Good collection of the imperial treasures, ornaments and jewels, ceremonial robes of the Hapsburg rulers and the Holy Roman Empire. Well laid out, descriptions in German and English. Small discount with Vienna card, audio guide extra. Housed in the same Hofburg palace complex along with Sissi museum and the Spanish riding school.

Some of the most prized items in the world reside here as ordained by the Hapsburg Royal Family. Many items were moved during WW2 by Hitler but returned upon the end of the war. The infamous Spear of Destiny is housed here along with other items alleged to be intimately linked with Christ. An absolute must see.

My husband and I had a couple hours to kill while awaiting our daughter's arrival to Vienna. We thought this attraction might just fill our time. We were right. We paid our entry fee, opted to not have headphones (there were description throughout plus we were on a time limit), and began wandering. It was fabulous, for the most part.... More

Of all the things near the Imperial Palace, this was definitely my favorite. From the crowns to the liturgical artifacts, it was all really beautiful and impressive. Since i'm not an expert on Austrian history, I spent the extra €4 on an audio guide and it was worth it.

I visited late in the day and got on a 4pm guided tour in English. Really worth doing this, as our historian guide showed the small group some of the museum's highlights, as well as pointing out areas to visit after the tour. She gave us fascinating insights into the history of the various crowns and robes, as well as... More

This treasury houses different kind of artefacts and historic documents. Not just jewelries but also the artwork of German kings draw your attention to themselves. As a window-shopping lover, I was thrilled to watch luxury gems (yes, these are real ones) adorned of the crowns and swords the ancient dukes actually used in numerous occasions. Definitely recommended to anybody who... More

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.
