The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.
How to get there
  • Herrengasse • 4 min walk
  • Stephansplatz • 6 min walk

If you're a fan of beautiful gowns, gorgeous jewelry, or historical coronation items, don't miss!

We squeezed this in before our train ride out of town, and were not disappointed. I would not recommend doing this on the same day that you visit the Hofburg, as the opulence will start to lose its wow factor. Split them up and enjoy!

Impressive treasures from the entire Empire
Jun 2019
We went with our guide so he was able to get us in immediately. We may not have originally done this but we enjoyed the treasury at the Residenz in Munich. I will say this was even bigger with crowns and robes from Austria but also so many from its Empire. The Bohemian crown (Czech Republic) is here as it once was a part of the Austrian Empire as well as the most notable and historic piece of the collection the Crown of the Holy Roman Empire which belonged to the Habsburgs for 400 years. Finally there were simply other great pieces like a large religious piece made of Amber and silver with gold plate replica of the Mary Column in Vienna. We enjoyed a brief stay here to see the treasures of the Austrian Empire.

Beautiful
Apr 2019
It was cold and rainy on the day of our visit, the outside grounds are massive. I got lost trying to find the entrance to the Imperial Treasury. I wish there were more signs or a bigger entrance way to the treasury.
After struggling in the rain we found the door in one of the lower levels of the building. I approached the ticket vendor and purchased my tickets, walked past a small open gift shop and past security to be sent upstairs to enter the treasury.
The museum itself was darkly lighted to emphasize the splendor of the treasures. There were a variety of collections to story-tell the wealth and power of the empire. I had stopped a staff to ask a few questions about the pieces and they were more than willing to help. I told her I wanted to see the Holy lance and she guided me through to show me where it was located.

Overall worthwhile experience especially to avoid the cold rain. Staff working at the museum were knowledge and quite friendly.

We spent a couple of hours admiring amazing jewels! Crowns, scepters, all types of royal accessories! The collection tells a history of royalty, power, and wealth. Truly a wonderful collection. Austria is lucky to have such an amazing collection available and accessible to so many visitors.

A fascinating display of historical collections
Feb 2020
This was a self-guided tour with audio commentary. It is well worth the cost of the ticket and the audio. We enjoyed all the information and viewing all the different relics.
