The advantage of Vienna, compared to other great imperial or royal European capitals of the past, like Paris or St. Petersburg, is that the reigning dynasty has not been swept away by a violent revolution (1792, 1917), but has been dethroned from the relatively peaceful proclamation of the next government (1918). This has had a beneficial effect: the dynasty's palaces... More

It can get really boring looking at all the pretty stuff there so don't feel bad about speeding through the last few rooms. Maybe not the right place for you if you're not impressed by golden trinkets. It's nice but there surely are more beautiful things to look at in Vienna

When I entered this museum and I saw what was on display at the start I thought that this wasn't going to be as impressive as what I was lead to believe. I was wrong. At the start it takes you through the everyday wares used in the kitchen etc then as you move through the displays they get more... More

I was not sure what to expect and did not think I could possibly enjoy this activity as much as I did. The level of detail in the dishes, along with the variety and sheer magnitude of the royal crockery collection was extremely impressive. This was an entertaining stop, and you could pick up on something different each time you... More

The number of silverware sets or "services" preserved in this museum is very impressive. It seems that any festive occasion was a good reason to buy a new, extensive, hand painted original set of hundreds of pieces - in particular plates. Just seeing the wealth here gives a great idea for the lifestyle of the royal family and nobility at... More

t contains not only silver, but also porcelain, jewelry and fabrics (clothing, Church vestments), as well as weapons and the Imperial regalia - the crown, medals, ceremonial accessories. The collection is well exposed and gives the idea and importance of the Imperial house of Austri

This is part of the Hofburg Palace and houses the extensive and extravagant collection of the empire's dining and kitchenware.It's cool to see, but gets to be information overload fairly quickly. Don't feel bad if you have to skip this.

A huge collection of dishes and table settings used by Habsburg dynasty. There are some real jewels in the collection but it gets boring after the first 10 mins.

Not only silver, but china and anything else you'd put on the table, and also porcelain for bedroom etc. My husband became quite absorbed and I was also much more fascinated than I first thought. There is a combined ticket with the Sisi Musum and free audio guides, which are very good.

Large collection of silverware and other precious materials that the Hapsburgs used at the palace. Well worth the visit but make sure you buy the combo ticket for the Sisi museum and the apartments since it is all right there and you will likely want to visit all three.

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.
