Collection of Arms and Armor
Highly political events such as military campaigns, imperial diets, tributes, coronations and weddings were occasions to create new objects that could be brought to the Collection of Arms and Armor. Almost all western European dynasties are represented with objects from the fifteenth century to the early twentieth century.
The high artistic quality of the objects is due to the representational requirements of the rulers and their vassals. The suits of armor on display are without exception especially made by the most renowned armor makers, who often used designs of such famous artists as Dürer or Holbein for the magnificent etchings.
