On this trip you have the opportunity to view the sumptuous treasures of the House of Habsburg when you visit the Imperial Treasury at the Hofburg Palace as well as the outstanding collection in the Kunstkammer, a museum situated within the Kunsthistorisches Museum.
The Kunstkammer collection is considered one of the most important of its kind in the world and has only recently been reopened for public viewing in 2013.
