Owner description: Coaches and carriages of emperors and gowns and dresses of empresses The Imperial Carriage Museum Vienna in Schonbrunn Palace invites you to take a walk through the history of Austria. See the carriages of famous rulers such as Maria Theresia, Napoleon or Franz Joseph and accompany them through their eventful lives. The highlight is the baroque Imperial Coach, but there are also exquisite state carriages, comfortable travelling coaches and the charming children’s carriages of Habsburg princes and princesses. Another highlight is the »Sisi Trail« that showcases not only the Empress’ carriages but also personal mementos such as her only extant saddle, her »riding chapel«, and sumptuous original dresses.

“Transports of Delight”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

The Imperial Carriage Museum is very interesting if you like historical carriages! There is a great deal of interesting facts about Empress Elisabeth (Siss) and of course the exhibits have the English translation. There are also some of the clothes that Sissi wore and did she have a tiny waist or what!

“Breathtaking place!”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

The museum is not really big but it has many carriages that are absolutely breathtaking. The collection is quite extensive and it shows what type of transportation the royal family used over the centuries. There are even clothes they wore and many beautiful paintings. Worth visiting. Just a piece of advice - don't touch anything! :)

“An Unexpected Treat!”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

We had time after visiting the palace and gardens and really enjoyed this museum. Overall, it was more interesting and rewarding than the palace and no crowds! We spent 1 1/2 hours here, didn't get the audioguide - just read everything. Would have lingered longer but it was closing at 4:00.

“The Habsburg coaches are impressive”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

This is a fine museum located in the massive Schonbrunn Palace complex. It is actually run by the Kunsthistoriches Museum of Vienna and it is a museum of the amazing coaches that belonged to the Habsburgs over the centuries. There's also the automobile that carried the Emperor Charles and his family into exile in 1918. The museum at this time is highlighting the life of the Empress Elisabeth (Sisi) and her passion for horses and riding. It's very interesting and well done. The Wagenburg is definitely worth a visit if you have the time on a visit to Schonbrunn Palace. And there's a great café and dining spot right next door to it that a lot of visitors have no idea is there but is a great place for a bite to eat or to indulge in a great Austrian wine or beer!
