The Emperor's Treasures


Combined offer – visit the Morning Exercise in the Spanish Riding School & The Imperial Treasury

OVER THE CENTURIES the art-loving Habsburg family brought many cultural treasures to their court and established a unique collection of material and immaterial heritage. The importance of these cultural assets was reflected in the fact that they were located in Hofburg Palace. The Imperial Treasury houses objects of outstanding dynastic and
religious significance, including the Austrian Imperial crown, insignia and jewels from the Holy Roman Empire, the giant narwhale tusk which was believed to be a unicorn’s horn, or the late antique agate bowl which was thought to be the legendary Holy Grail. 

Watch the training sessions of the riders and their horses of the Spanish Riding
School – the world-famous Lipizzan horses! The traditions of the High School of
Classical Horsemanship are maintained and preserved to this day in the baroque Winter Riding School built under Charles VI.
