Exploring the Imperial Treasury
Visitors to the Imperial Treasury can explore its two main sections - the Imperial Profane and the Sacerdotal Treasuries.
The Imperial Profane contains the Habsburg Empire's crown jewels and other treasures, including the magnificent imperial crown. This priceless 1000 year old treasure is adorned with sapphires, emeralds, diamonds and rubies and was taken to Germany by Hitler in 1938, before being returned to the Imperial Treasury by American forces after World War II.
The Sacerdotal Treasuries are home to the Schatzkammer's ecclesiastical treasures. Here, visitors can see Charlemagne's ninth century saber and eighth century holy lance, once thought to have pierced the side of Jesus Christ at the crucifixion. Other highlights of the Imperial Treasury include the Burgundian Treasure and artefacts connected to the Order of the Golden Fleece.
