Many tourists will have visited Vienna more than once. They might have seen most of the major tourist sites and are now looking for a few other interesting things to do. Many opportunities exist. The following are just a few examples:

  • The Hofmobiliendepot (Court Furniture Warehouse) - U-bahn  U-3  Zieglergasse stop ; Bus 13 A Neubaugasse stop; Open Tuesday-Sunday  10-6. Collection of original pieces of Habsburg furniture much Biedermeier - nice exhibits in two buildings. Until the mid 1800s each Imperial Palace did not have their own furniture( too many palaces ) Before the Imperial Family traveled, furniture was dispatched from this depot to fill the destination Palace with the needed items. Even today, the depot provides furniture to the Hofburg Palace for special events, to Austrian diplomats and Embassies worldwide.
  • Heeresgeschictliches Museum (Military Museum) -3rd District Arsenal; Streetcar " D"  to end of line at Sudbahnhof - then just a short 5 minute walk; open daily 9-5 ; closed Friday. Military history from 17th century - fine collection of arms, Turkish siege items, the auto of Archduke Ferdinand whose shooting directly led to World War 1. The site of the last official engagement of Crown Prince Rudolph before his journey to Mayerling and suicide.  A "Must See" for military buffs.
  • Zentralfriedhof (Central Cemetery) - Streetcar#71; cemetery has 3 stops - best for visitors Door#2. Graves of many composers and millions of others. Numerous monuments in various styles; a comment on the Imperial time. Also a Jewish cemetery area. Scenes of the movie "The Third Man" filmed here.

  • Wiener Kriminalmuseum - Grosse Sperlgasse 24 - streetcar 21; located in one of the oldest houses in Vienna. Of great interest to crime buffs: a collection of the police regarding some of the lesser known former residents of Vienna from the Middle Ages until today.
