We ended up in the silverware museum on our way through to the Sisi museum. It was like a torturous maze of boring-ness. It is literally cases and cases of silver bowls and spoons, most of which look alike, and are not all that impressive....More

The massive amount of cutlery, porcelain, silver, and crystal make this a must see. However, I felt bored after about an hour. The audio guide had so much detail and there is only so much I can care about the royal dinnerware. No picture taking...More

The Silberkammer is part of the Vienna Pass trio that permits entrance into the silver collection (Silberkammer), Sisi Museum, and Imperial Apartments. The silver collection was the most impressive part. It is simply astounding to see the quantity of crystal, silver, gold, porcelain, and dinner...More

The Silver rooms are just astonishing: the sheer quantity of silver and vermeil and porcelain crockery are just overwhelming. These rooms just give you a wonderful insight of the life of Hofburg: very instructive!

This is part of the trio, combined with the Sisi exhibition and the Kaiser's apartment. The display is really quite dazzling and it is interesting to see how elaborate their meals were and all the accompanying "crockery". Silver plates were the order of the day,...More

It's tea sets and dishes and forks and knives and candle holders belonging to the Imperial state. Unless you have a passion for these things it's a little boring but definitely opulent. Located in the Hofburg palace.

This is the beginning of the Sisi apartments museum however we misunderstood and thought we had paid just for this at first. It's tea service sets, gilt tableware and lots of it. Little description of what is exhibited unless you get an audio guide. Maybe...More

You'll get into this museum first when visiting the Sissi museum. My favorite part was the bakeware where you can see exactly the same cake pans we use today for Kugelhopf for example. You'll also see all the tableware and serveware in gold, silver and...More

Located in the Hofburg Palace and enter the same ticket here at the Museum of Sissi and state apartments. The museum has an interesting collection of utensils from the time of the empire.
