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.

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.
