Atlas Obscura Hofjagd und Rüstkammer

Upon entering this classic building, you’re greeted by large halls and rooms filled with magnificent, courtly coats of armor and weaponry from throughout the Middle Ages.  

Three major exhibits span the museum and showcase a vast array of armor worn by political and military leaders from across Europe. They include armor worn by the imperial family, a collection of arms dawned by military leaders from Western and Central Europe from the 15th and 16th centuries, and artifacts from the House of Habsburg.
