Silver Collection

The former Court Silver and Table Room, today the Silver Collection, is a unique collection of cultural and historical importance, comprising objects and items that were required for the court household and its organisation.

Today the Silver Collection Museum gives visitors a fascinating insight into the culture of courtly dining in its various forms.

This history of the Vienna Silver Chamber goes back to the fifteenth century. The office of Silver Chamberlain is first documented at the Vienna court of Emperors Frederick III and Maximilian I. The holder of this office was responsible for the table silver, table linen and the setting of the imperial table.
