The basics

See spectacular crowns, priceless jewels, and the other lavish imperial baubles that make up the two dazzling collections (the Secular Treasury and the Ecclesiastical Treasury) that fill more than 20 halls in the Imperial Palace (Hofburg) during a private or small-group museum tour. Alternatively, visit independently with a pre-booked ticket to avoid having to wait in line. You can also take in the museum collection with the Flexi Pass, or admire the palace from the outside on Hapsburg-themed walking and e-bike tours of Austria’s capital city.

Must see!
This is a must see if you are interested at all in seeing the imperial crowns, capes, etc.! I will admit it was much smaller than I thought, and security was very tight (obviously) - but it was well worth the visit! Certainly not something you get to see every day (or at all depending on where you live!). Highly recommend!

Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna and Imperial Treasury of Vienna
I was very pleased with this - it was easy to access the museum and of course, the museum is gorgeous. I'd recommend for any art history enthusiast. Also doable with younger children, as there is a gorgeous cafe and nice coffee bar, with many benches.

Interesting spot and great items to see. Was dark inside and hard to see clearly. Some guided tour groups blocked us taking pics as there were in front of some good spots for a long time

Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna and Imperial Treasury of Vienna
The museum is absolutely incredible but instead of going first thing in the morning, we went after seeing something else so we didn’t have the energy to see all the exhibits. This ticket should be issued as a two day use to give older people like us the chance to split the tour over two days like some of the other tickets we purchased.

The Crown Jewels of the Imperial Treasury of Vienna

The highlight of the Secular Treasury is the behemoth imperial crown, a gemstone-embellished piece dating back to 962. Other items of note include a 2,680-carat Colombian emerald, one of the world’s largest sapphires, a golden rose, a narwhal’s tusk once mistaken for a unicorn horn, and an ornate bowl which some believe to be the holy grail. The Ecclesiastical Treasury claims among its relics what is believed to be fragments of Jesus’s cross, a thorn from his crown, and a swatch of the tablecloth used at the Last Supper.
