The Museum the Emperor Built

The Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna counts among the most important museums in the world. It was built by Emperor Franz Joseph to house the fabulous Habsburg collections that had been assembled over centuries. Designed by architects Gottfried Semper and Karl Hasenauer, the Kunsthistorisches Museum on Vienna’s Ringstrasse is among the most impressive museums erected in the 19th century. The vast building houses a number of world-renowned collections.

The extensive Picture Gallery is one of the foremost collections of Old Masters in the world. Marvel at the fine lines of Raphael, the painted curves by Rubens, the strong colors of Rembrandt. "Meet" Vermeer, Velazquez, Titian, and Duerer, and explore the world’s most extensive collection of paintings by Pieter Bruegel the Elder.

In the outstanding Egyptian and Near Eastern Collection you will enter into the fascinating world of the Ancient Egyptians—much of it presented in galleries decorated in the 19th-century, neo-Egyptian style. When entering the Collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities, you see artwork that spans 3 millennia—from the Bronze Age to the Dark Ages, from Cyprus to Greece, and Italy to Austria.

New! Kunstkammer Vienna: The Habsburgs Private Collection

The Kunstkammer Vienna is the most important collection of its kind in the world. Come and see a "museum within the museum" with 20 newly-installed galleries that invite you to experience a world of curiosities and wonder.

The Habsburgs’ passion for collecting, which continued from the late Middle Ages to the Baroque, resulted in a cosmos of art and beauty, with 2,200 works of art telling the numerous stories of their creators, collectors, and the rulers from bygone eras.

Among its highlights are examples of fabulous goldsmith work, including the celebrated Saliera by Benvenuto Cellini, outstanding sculptures, including the Krumau Madonna, and magnificent bronze statuettes. You will discover exotic and uncommon materials, which were often ascribed magical powers, such as precious stones, coral, and shark’s teeth, which were considered to be dragon tongues. The best and most famous artists created virtuoso works of art from delicate and bizarre ivories and precious stone vessels as well as valuable clocks, elaborate automatons, strange scientific instruments, sumptuous game boards, and much more.

A Glimpse of Glory at the Imperial Treasury Vienna

Located in the medieval part of the Hofburg Palace, the Schweizerhof, the Treasury houses Habsburg treasures and insignia—among them the Austrian imperial crown, as well as the crown, insignia, and jewels of the Holy Roman Empire. Precious jewels like the largest cut emerald in the world testify to the Habsburgs’ former power and glory.

Other highlights are the Order of the Golden Fleece, including magnificently embroidered robes from 15th-century Burgundy and some charming pieces of jewelry once worn by Empress Elisabeth and other Habsburg empresses and princesses. Come and discover such legendary objects as the 8th-century Holy Lance, the agate bowl once regarded as the Holy Grail, and the horn of a "unicorn".

Princely Armor and Instruments of Celebrated Musicians

The Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna comprises 3 collections displayed in the Neue Burg on Heldenplatz. The Collection of Arms and Armor is probably the world’s best documented collection of princely armor, the Collection of Ancient Musical Instruments showcases instruments of celebrated musicians as well as rare and precious instruments, and the Ephesus Museum houses the most important Roman relief from Asia Minor.
