A visit to the Imperial Treasury Vienna
Why not treat your groups to a special experience and complement your visit to the Imperial Treasury Vienna with a special theme-based tour, or visit the museum, which is unique in its kind worldwide, outside the regular opening times.
Listed here is a number of suggested packages. We are of course more than happy to tailor our offers to your requirements.
Besides the popular classic overview tour we also offer more in-depth information on the following themes.
The Emperor’s Coronation – Coronation mantle and imperial insignia
The insignia of the Holy Roman Empire are the highlight of any visit to the Imperial Treasury Vienna. The focal point of the visit includes the coronation vestments, the Imperial Crown and the Imperial Cross with the Holy Lance, all of which form part of the most significant and almost entirely preserved insignia of the Middle Ages in Europe.
The Emperor of Austria – Birth of a monarchy
Emperor Francis II / I and Napoleon are the key figures at the centre of this guided tour. The Austrian Imperial Crown, the cradle of Napoleon II, Duke of Reichstadt (son of Napoleon I and his second wife, Archduchess Marie Louise of Austria), and countless other magnificently crafted memorabilia provide an impressive illustration of the way in which Austria evolved politically in the early 19th century.
The Burgundian Inheritance – Splendour and magnificence in the late Middle Ages
A wealth of treasures and new lands to the West accrued to the Habsburgs in the late 15th century following the marriage of Maximilian I to Maria of Burgundy. The magnificent Burgundian goblet made of rock crystal testifies to that wealth to this day, as does the mystical radiance of the vestments of the Order of the Golden Fleece, which represent the heyday of European embroidery in the late Middle Ages.
Habsburg Heaven – The treasure of relics from the Ecclesiastical Treasury
The much cited piety of the Habsburgs is to be seen not just as a political instrument of power or a publicly displayed ritual; rather, it was borne by a deep conviction. Witness the many relics and their precious settings such as the reliquary containing a nail from the True Cross or the monstrance of the Order of the Starry Cross.
