Overview

Coaches and carriages of emperors and gowns and dresses of empresses The Imperial Carriage Museum Vienna in Schonbrunn Palace invites you to take a walk through the history of Austria. See the carriages of famous rulers such as Maria Theresia, Napoleon or Franz Joseph and accompany them through their eventful lives. The highlight is the baroque Imperial Coach, but there are also exquisite state carriages, comfortable travelling coaches and the charming children’s carriages of Habsburg princes and princesses. Another highlight is the »Sisi Trail« that showcases not only the Empress’ carriages but also personal mementos such as her only extant saddle, her »riding chapel«, and sumptuous original dresses.

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

If you have time , it can be seen as a part of Schonbrun visit but nothing special. It is a small collection.

It is a wonderful collection of the carriages used by the imperial family. beside the carriages you can see old dresses of Sissi and guess the trim figure she had.

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
