The Neue Burg is the most recent part of the Hofburg Palace on Vienna’s Ringstrasse, and it is home to three collections of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna. The Collection of Historic Musical Instruments comprises the original instruments of some of the world’s greatest composers such as Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. The Collection of Arms and Armour is packed full of magnificent suits of armour and decora-tive weapons that attest to chivalric values and impor-tant occasions at court. And at the Ephesus Museum the »Parthian Monument« reflects the glory and splendour of one of Antiquity’s greatest cities.

This part of the imperial palace was built at the height of Habsburg domination over Europe, after Napoleonic wars were over and the WWI was still far ahead. The old city walls were demolished, giving way to the Ringstrasse, and thee was place to extend...More

This was a repeat visit from a trip several years ago and I was once again amazed how few people there were in this stunningly beautiful museum with beautiful and fascinating exhibits.

One of the most beautiful and dominating buildings in Vienna, and that's a real challenge. Amazing location, superb architecture, simply a must-see.

If you're looking for the ultimate "WOW" factor, you've got to see the inside of this amazing building. Admission is included with the combo ticket that also covers the Treasury and the Kunsthistorishes Museum (a short walk away). The armor collection goes on almost forever...More

This is a massive curved incomplete palace from the 19th century which now houses the Kunsthistorishes Museum and stands overlooking Heldenplatz. It is adjacent to the Hoffberg Palace and houses amongst other things a huge collection of armoury. We didn't go inside, but did marvel...More

We just stayed in the Burggarten exhausted. Was only admiring the colossal building. but got the information about the collections inside, mostly the arms and armor and the varied historical musical instruments. The garden was my comfort that time.

As a musician, I could have spent all day looking at the various old instruments on display since there is a ton of them. The armor display is also extremely expansive, which we moved fairly quickly through since that isn't our area of expertise and...More

History of imperial Europe has always been marked by a game of one-upmanship. Rules and Emperors sort to outdo one another and showcase a display of extravaganza by ordering projects such as the construction of Neue Burg which is meant to challenge the Louvre. This...More
