Founded by Empress Maria Theresa in 1747, royal accoutrements from thrones to commodes.
Like fancy antique furniture? Welcome to heaven.
In making your way around Vienna's "Museumsquartier," its historic center, the Belvedere and Hofburg palaces, or pretty much any part of the Ringstrasse, you get the feeling that the Habsburg dynasty has been responsible for practically all of the city's historic monuments. And one of the most curious of those monuments is the Imperial Furniture Collection, founded in 1747 by Empress Maria Theresa. On these two floors you can gaze upon the world's largest collection of Biedermeier pieces (a style very characteristic of Vienna). And of course there's also a huge section of furniture that belonged to Austria's most popular empress, Elisabeth (aka Sisi).
