A collection of carriages used by the imperial family and the Austrian high nobility - from the daily transport and children's miniature individual vehicles to the astonishingly elaborate for coronations and weddings. If you have time and a depth of interest there is an excellent...More

If you want to get an impression about the start of the luxury road transport you have to be there. You see all types and types of possible carriages until the sleigh forms and children's carriages. Franz Joseph, Maria Theresia, Napoleon or Sisi rode in...More

Most visitors could easily miss this little museum which is located at one corner of Schonbrunn Palace. My husband and I loved it - we were wowed by some of the imperial carriages and there were even an imperial hearse. It's worth a visit.

We enjoyed this more than we expected to. The museum can be found through the archway on the right hand side after you have crossed the front courtyard to the Palace. Allow up to an hour. Photos are allowed. There are basic descriptions next to...More

Visited this attraction whilst at the Palace. I wasn't sure about it before we went in, but I'm glad we decided to go in. I would recommend getting an audio guide, it made the visit so much more pleasurable. The information provided really adds value...More

An honest confession : stumbled upon the exhibition as had time to kill for my grand tour entry to the palace. Since it was covered in the vienna card we stumbled upon it. Has an impressive collection of carriage.Worth a visit.

I found this display to be very interesting. Many carriages belonging to the Hapsburgs over the years. Most very ornate and some functional. Next to the Schonbrurn. Nice surprise.

Went with my husband and mother in a wheelchair. The exhibits were extremely varied, from baby carriages to sleighs to landaus, massive state coaches and even a state hearse. A spacious display area although we could not access the first floor. Atmosphere in the area...More

I love carriages and sleighs so this museum was perfect for me. We didn’t pay 2 euros for an audio guide but we didn’t miss out on information as there are lengthy descriptions in English next to every exhibit. We enjoyed the videos about different...More

This is an amazing small museum. The carriages are so ornate and well preserved. It is interesting to see the plush and luxuriously sumptuous interiors. I also enjoyed the historian on the t.v. that was set up in various rooms. At least the one that...More

Vienna’s 13th district has always been in the shadow
of Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens, but has
interesting hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
Allow half a day for the imposing Habsburg residence
and the gardens with Gloriette belvedere. Reserve the
other half to discover the secret charms of this posh
residential neighbourhood. Sneak out of the gardens at
Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down
