Heeresgeschichtliches Museum

The impressive Museum of Army History is housed in the military complex known as the Arsenal, built as a fortress in 1856. The museum, which chronicles Austria’s military prowess from the 16th century, was designed by Theophil Hansen and Ludwig Forster. Exhibits relate to the Turkish Siege of Vienna in 1683, the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars. There are documents relating to the battles fought by the Habsburgs, a collection of arms, banners, uniforms and military vehicles. Among the most fascinating exhibits are memorabilia relating to Prince Eugene of Savoy, as well as a collection of model ships that illustrates the past glories of imperial power at sea — since it is landlocked, it is easy to forget that Austria was once a formidable naval power. A separate section is devoted to the events in Sarajevo on 28 June 1914, when Archduke Ferdinand and his wife Sophie von Hohenberg were assassinated by a Serbian nationalist, provoking a crisis that led to the outbreak of World War I.
