Imperial Treasury Vienna
Crowns and jewels of the Habsburgs
The Imperial Treasury Vienna in Hofburg Palace showcases the unique treasures of the House of Habsburg, among them the Austrian imperial crown and the imperial treasures of the Holy Roman Empire featuring the »Reichskrone« (Holy Roman Crown) and the Holy Lance. Other highlights include the treasure of the Order of the Golden Fleece and objects from the magnificently rich collection amassed by the Duke of Burgundy in the 15th century. Legendary treasures, such as the agate bowl which is said to be the »Holy Grail«, the largest cut emerald in the world and the horn of the fabled unicorn, come to life here. Original pieces of jewelry once worn by Empress Elisabeth are also on display.
