The court hunting and armory in the main building of the Kunsthistorisches Museum is currently presenting its largest and most important armory treasures in a sensationally good way – the exxpressTV team is of course taking this as an opportunity for a history special: how heavy was this armor really? Did the armored warriors really have to be lifted onto their horses? How hard was wearing the armor? And how expensive were these works of art that were supposed to save lives on battlefields?
A top expert answers these questions: Dr. In an interview with eXXpress editor-in-chief Richard Schmitt, Stefan Krause, the director of the court hunting and armory, provided all the exciting information about the warriors and princes who swung their swords and maces in their armor more than 500 years ago.
The special show “Iron Men” can be seen on the first floor of the Kunsthistorisches Museum on Burgring in Vienna: The most important, most beautiful and most interesting of the 180 suits of armor kept in the court hunting and armory are together with wonderful paintings showing their former owners , issued.
It’s also worth taking a look at the website of the Kunsthistorisches Museum: Here you can find a lot of background information on the special show. The exhibition can be visited every day except Monday.
Look forward to an exciting episode! Tonight at 8:15 p.m. – only on eXXpressTV, channel 170!
