Description

Kaiserliche Schatzkammer Wien (c) KHM-Museumsverband

Exhibition

The treasuries of the House of Habsburg are accommodated in the medieval part of the stronghold. The entrance to the Imperial Treasury can be found in the “Schweizer Hof” (Swiss Court), where the Swiss Guard was once positioned. The exhibited samples range from valuable jewellery, such as the world's biggest emerald, and the Austrian Imperial crown, the crown jewels of the Holy Roman Empire, and splendid, meticulously worked and fine filigree jewellery of Habsburg empresses and princesses. A part of Empress Elisabeth's jewellery collection is exhibited here too. One of the major highlights of the whole collection is without a doubt the Treasure of the Order of the Golden Fleece, the largest polished agate bowl in the world. Long time it was said to be the Holy Grail, the throne cradle of Napoleon's son and the holy lance from the 8th century.
