It's tea sets and dishes and forks and knives and candle holders belonging to the Imperial state. Unless you have a passion for these things it's a little boring but definitely opulent. Located in the Hofburg palace.

This is the beginning of the Sisi apartments museum however we misunderstood and thought we had paid just for this at first. It's tea service sets, gilt tableware and lots of it. Little description of what is exhibited unless you get an audio guide. Maybe if you have a particular interest in plates and saucers this is good but for... More

You'll get into this museum first when visiting the Sissi museum. My favorite part was the bakeware where you can see exactly the same cake pans we use today for Kugelhopf for example. You'll also see all the tableware and serveware in gold, silver and porcelain. It was interesting to see how they carried all the royal kitchenware during trips.... More

Located in the Hofburg Palace and enter the same ticket here at the Museum of Sissi and state apartments. The museum has an interesting collection of utensils from the time of the empire.

The advantage of Vienna, compared to other great imperial or royal European capitals of the past, like Paris or St. Petersburg, is that the reigning dynasty has not been swept away by a violent revolution (1792, 1917), but has been dethroned from the relatively peaceful proclamation of the next government (1918). This has had a beneficial effect: the dynasty's palaces... More

It can get really boring looking at all the pretty stuff there so don't feel bad about speeding through the last few rooms. Maybe not the right place for you if you're not impressed by golden trinkets. It's nice but there surely are more beautiful things to look at in Vienna

When I entered this museum and I saw what was on display at the start I thought that this wasn't going to be as impressive as what I was lead to believe. I was wrong. At the start it takes you through the everyday wares used in the kitchen etc then as you move through the displays they get more... More

I was not sure what to expect and did not think I could possibly enjoy this activity as much as I did. The level of detail in the dishes, along with the variety and sheer magnitude of the royal crockery collection was extremely impressive. This was an entertaining stop, and you could pick up on something different each time you... More

The number of silverware sets or "services" preserved in this museum is very impressive. It seems that any festive occasion was a good reason to buy a new, extensive, hand painted original set of hundreds of pieces - in particular plates. Just seeing the wealth here gives a great idea for the lifestyle of the royal family and nobility at... More

t contains not only silver, but also porcelain, jewelry and fabrics (clothing, Church vestments), as well as weapons and the Imperial regalia - the crown, medals, ceremonial accessories. The collection is well exposed and gives the idea and importance of the Imperial house of Austri

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
