Entertainment at the Habsburg court: hunting, tourneys and music
The Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna is home to a further three collections at the NEUE BURG on Heldenplatz:
The Imperial Armoury showcases elaborately decorated suits of armour, firearms, precious textiles and saddles that once belonged to Habsburg princes and the scions of Europe’s grandest ruling families. Theirs is a tale of important political events and sumptuous tournaments as well as the world’s largest collection of falconry accoutrements at the imperial court.
The celebrated Collection of Historical Musical Instruments offers a comprehensive survey of the development of musical instruments and music making in Austria under the Habsburgs.
The so-called Parthian Monument in the Ephesus Museum documents the grandeur of the ancient city of Ephesus.
