The medieval part of the Imperial Palace, the Schweizerhof, contains the unique treasures of the Habsburgs, including the Austrian imperial crown and the crown jewels of the Holy Roman Empire. Further highlights include the treasure of the Order of the Golden Fleece and the collections of the invaluable Burgundian treasures from the 15th century. Jewels belonging to the Habsburg empresses and pieces of the original jewellery belonging to Empress Elisabeth can also be seen here. You can also discover legendary treasures such as the Holy Lance of the 8th century, the largest cut emerald in the world and the horn of the fantastical unicorn.
