From the Late Middle Ages to the Baroque, Habsburg emperors and archdukes collected all that was rare and strange, and commissioned virtuoso artists to produce outstanding artifacts made of precious materials such as ivory, bronze or gold.

Often called the »cradle of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien«, the Kunstkammer Wien comprises magnificent highlights like the celebrated golden »Saliera« by Benvenuto Cellini, exceptional sculptures like the Krumau Madonna, magnificent bronze statuettes, delicate and bizarre ivories, vessels cut from semi-precious stones, complex automatons and much, much more.
