This is a must for all keen on aesthetics in the kitchen ... There is all from pottery through silver to gold; from cups via glasses to spoons and forks and knifes. Allow at least two hours - the museum is not big, but there...More

We ended up in the silverware museum on our way through to the Sisi museum. It was like a torturous maze of boring-ness. It is literally cases and cases of silver bowls and spoons, most of which look alike, and are not all that impressive....More

The massive amount of cutlery, porcelain, silver, and crystal make this a must see. However, I felt bored after about an hour. The audio guide had so much detail and there is only so much I can care about the royal dinnerware. No picture taking...More

The Silberkammer is part of the Vienna Pass trio that permits entrance into the silver collection (Silberkammer), Sisi Museum, and Imperial Apartments. The silver collection was the most impressive part. It is simply astounding to see the quantity of crystal, silver, gold, porcelain, and dinner...More

This beautiful and enormous collection of the imperial cutlery and dishes set is located before the Imperial Apartments and the Sisi Museum and is actually quite interesting (more interesting than you might think at first) if you listen to the audioguide. The museum is also...More

The Silver rooms are just astonishing: the sheer quantity of silver and vermeil and porcelain crockery are just overwhelming. These rooms just give you a wonderful insight of the life of Hofburg: very instructive!

This is part of the trio, combined with the Sisi exhibition and the Kaiser's apartment. The display is really quite dazzling and it is interesting to see how elaborate their meals were and all the accompanying "crockery". Silver plates were the order of the day,...More

It's tea sets and dishes and forks and knives and candle holders belonging to the Imperial state. Unless you have a passion for these things it's a little boring but definitely opulent. Located in the Hofburg palace.
