In the footsteps of imperial living culture. Guided tour of the Imperial Furniture Collection Vienna.

Originally, the Imperial Furniture Collection was the furniture store of the Habsburgs. Today, with 165,000 objects, it is one of the largest furniture collections in the world.

We shall enjoy a guided tour through parts of this collection and will visit highlights such as the Egyptian cabinet of Empress Maria Ludovica, the precious secretary of Marie Antoinette, the famous portrait of Empress Elisabeth by Franz Xaver Winterhalter or the Turkish room of Crown Prince Rudolf.

Greeting by Ms. Anja Hasenlechner, Head of Department V/2 Historical Collections, Federal Ministry Digitalisation and Economic Affairs
