  • Since it's called the Imperial Treasury of Vienna and features the jeweled crown in its publicity, we expected it to be full of glitz and glitter, amazing treasures to behold. It is indeed worth a vis...  more »

  • Unlike the crown jewels at the hungarian parliament, here you can take pics. From elaborate jeweled coronation robes hundreds of years old to septors 1000 years old just wow. Definitely not something ...  more »

  • Omg.... it's hard to believe this place actually exist. Every thing in here is jaw dropping
  • A great place to see beautiful collections ranging from royal silk gowns to diamond crowns. A must see in Vienna.
  • It won't take more than an hour to see it, for an average person I think. It's right next to Sisi museum, where you can see her apartment along with original China and furniture. I think it's part of Hofburg Palace, part of which is also National Library now.
  • Very Nice display of the royal treasury. Tastfull lighted and possible tot see from alle sites.
  • This review is for the Treasury only, not the apartments and other buildings. After reading other reviews, this place sounded like it was going to be really interesting. Spoiler alert, it was awful. About a third of it was just tabbards, every room was very dimly lit, and the collection itself was quite small. The price should have been at the very most, 5€. This was one of the most disappointing places I have ever been, and I have traveled quite a lot.

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
