Imperial Furniture Collection

The depot stored the furniture of the Habsburgs, kept it in good repair and distributed it to the imperial households when required.

Among the many thousands of exhibits amassed over five centuries, with special emphasis on Biedermeier and Historicism, one also finds a Baroque easy-chair on wheels, an imperial travel throne and praying-stools with velvet pillow-covers.

Here, one can admire the furniture of the rustic rooms of Empress Elisabeth in the Schönbrunn Meierei, as well as the room of a young girl from the Biedermeier era, not to mention such curios as rococo spittoons, room toilets disguised as "sitting furniture", and specially designed ladies' chamber-pots ...

Also on display: the permanent exhibition Sissi in the Movies, which takes a look behind the scenes of the world-famous 1950s trilogy with Romy Schneider.
