The Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna is one of the world’s foremost museums. The magnificent architecture alone offers an inkling of the overwhelming enjoyment of art that awaits the visitor at this Museum on Vienna’s Ringstrasse, originally commissioned by Emperor Franz Joseph and officially inaugurated in 1891.
Experience the rich collections of the Habsburgs, a dynasty that ruled in Austria for more than 600 years, for most of that time also as Emperors of the Holy Roman Empire.

The Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna boasts exhibits spanning five millennia – from Ancient Egypt to Greek Antiquity to the late 18th century. The Picture Gallery features unique major works by Dürer, Raphael, Rembrandt, Rubens, Titian, Velázquez and Vermeer as well as the world’s largest collection of Bruegel paintings. On show at the Kunstkammer Vienna are the most wonderful of artworks, exotic items from distant climes, and mystical-magic objects. Perhaps the best-known work at the Kunstkammer Vienna is the world famous ‘Saliera’ (salt cellar) by Benvenuto Cellini.

Visit the various museums and collections of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna and enjoy the genuinely imperial treasures on show.

With its comprehensive collections of ethnographic exhibits, historical photographs and books on non-European cultures the Weltmuseum Wien is one of the world’s leading ethnological museums.

The conceptual redesign of the Weltmuseum Wien now features 14 distinct exhibition rooms exploring supraregional issues in greater depth. The focus is on unique cultural treasures from all over the world and the stories they have to tell. The aim is to communicate to visitors the cultural diversity of the contents, stories and ways of life in an entertaining way.

The highlights of the Museum represent more than 500 years of high-quality collecting activities of the Habsburgs – among them objects from the Kunstkammer (Cabinet of Curiosities) of Emperor Rudolf II, the unique Mexican feather headdress Penacho, the world-famous collection of James Cook, objects from the voyages of discovery and research of the 19th century – yet remarkable objects and documents continued to be obtained in the 20th century.

The collections of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna at the Neue Burg will be accessible via the same entrance and ticket. The Collection of Historic Musical Instruments comprises the original instruments of some of the world’s greatest composers such as Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. The Imperial Armoury is packed full of magnificent suits of armour and decorative weapons that attest to chivalric values and important occasions at court.

IMPERIAL TREASURY
Located in the medieval part of the Hofburg Palace, the Schweizerhof, the Treasury houses Habsburg treasures and insignia, among them the Austrian imperial crown, and the crown, insignia and jewels of the Holy Roman Empire. Precious jewels such as the largest cut emerald in the world testify to the Habsburgs’ former power and glory.
Other highlights are the golden cradle of Napoleon’s son and treasures of the Order of the Golden Fleece, including magnificently embroidered robes from 15th century Burgundy. Also on display are charming pieces of jewellery once worn by Empress Elisabeth and by Habsburg empresses and princesses. Come and discover such legendary objects as the eighth-century Holy Lance, the agate bowl once regarded as the Holy Grail, or the horn of a “unicorn”.
The entrance to the Imperial Treasury is in the Schweizerhof, or Swiss Court; its name is a reminder of the Swiss Guards once stationed here.

IMPERIAL CARRIAGE MUSEUM
Located near Schönbrunn Palace, the Imperial Carriage Museum’s unique collection of imperial carriages and sleighs invites you on a tour through Austrian history. Magnificent carriages offer a glimpse of the eventful lives of rulers such as Maria Theresia, Napoleon or Emperor Franz Joseph. The highlight of the collection is the splendid baroque Imperial Coach, but there are also other exquisite carriages, comfortable coaches for travelling and charming children’s carriages for Habsburg princes and princesses. You can also enjoy the “Sisi Trail”, which showcases the Empress’s sumptuous carriages and personal objects such as her only surviving saddle, her “riding chapel” and her magnificent court robes.
