Impressive collection of jewellery, robes and artefacts. The design was more influenced by eastern style than western Europe. I tried and failed to find the inscription on the Agate bowl though.

I came away with much more appreciation for the long history of the Austrian empire. The pieces are nicely displayed and you are able to get amazingly close to the treasures such that you can see all of the incredible detail. Most pieces have descriptions in both German and English.

We loved wondering through the collection and getting insights to the royal's collectibles. The kids also enjoyed this stop more than I thought they would.

The Treasury has some amazing pieces of "jewellery" (crowns, orbs and sceptre) and all the coronation robes of the Hofburg and lots of reliquaries. Some pieces are just worth the visits and the be frank the lighting is just perfect (you can also take pictures but not using the flash). Certainly it gives you lot of information regarding the Hofburg... More

We stumbled upon the english tour which was quite worth it. There are many interesting stories to here. This place was the center of power for 600 years and they have the glitz to show for it. One interesting bit of knowledge, the crown was portable. It could be stored in a box and taken on the road!

Unless you have a very keen interest in historical relics then I probably wouldnt have visited this site but as it was included within the Vienna Pass I had a look around. The items are not only from Austria but also rescued from France before the French Revolution as well as items from the Netherlands, Hungary etc. A mix of... More

This is a good attraction to see both interesting/impressive crown jewels, as well as historic Catholic artifacts. Used a guide book (rather than extra cost audio guide) to get descriptions of the artifacts. Not sure if the wall placards would have been enough for English speakers.

While the actual treasury is fairly small - we likely walked around in about 45 minutes it has some absolutely gorgeous pieces. From the rooms full of mantles and richly decorated pieces of clothing - woven with gold thread to gem encrusted ornaments and crowns. The treasury is definitely unique in both the quality and type of treasures it showcases.... More

In the inner courtyard of the Hofburg is the original main entrance to the palace, known as Schweizertor, or the Swiss Gate. This gate predates back to the Renaissance and its red black and golden colour stands out among the baroque architecture of its surrounding. Pass through the ornately decorated gate and you'll reach the Swiss Wing and the chapel.... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood 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 centre. 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.
