Imperial Treasury

Local nameKaiserliche Schatzkammer
LocationInnere Stadt, Vienna, Austria

Tucked away in the oldest part of the Imperial Palace, this place covers over a thousand years of history in its interesting relics and items.

The treasury was set up in the 14th century by the Habsburgs, who got inspired by various other treasuries that had been existent since the High Middle Ages.

It's not just shiny jewels and crowns, the Treasury also owns an extensive amount of Habsburg's property and ancient artefacts from nearby places. Some of the most popular ones are the "unicorn horn", which is a huge narwhal tooth acquired from Poland, the Austrian's Emperor's crown, the Burgundian Treasury (dowry of Mary the Rich), and items commemorating the Military Order of Maria Theresa. Moreover, you can also observe the largest emeralds in the world and the Agate bowl, which is considered to be the Holy Grail (a bowl that brings happiness and eternal youth).

It is highly advised to obtain an audio guide, as looking at the jewels without a context could get uninteresting. You can get here by metro, station Herrengasse, line U3, or by trams 1, 2, 46, 48, 71, station Dr.Karl Renner Ring. Both are about a 5-minute walk away.
