Best Value for Tickets to Hofburg, Kunsthistorisches Mus., and Schönbrunn

I hope someone can help with better ticket purchasing ideas. It seems that the Sisi Pass is a good deal but does it include the Hofburg Treasury? I see there is a pass for the Hofburg Treasury and Kunsthistorisches Museum. And does the Sisi Pass include the Coach Museum Wagenburg? Lastly, I anyone have any recommendations on how to tackle the castles and the art museum? We are only in Vienna for 2 days. I would love some helpful suggestions!

My suggestion is to just do the interior of Schonbrunn and only do the treasury at Hofburg. To do both interiors is very overwhelming and overkill in my opinion, especially if you only have 2 days.

The combination ticket for The Treasury ( Schatzkammer ) and The Kunsthistoriches ( Art History ) Museum is a fine choice , BUT - is that the art you want to see ? Vienna is packed with exquisite art museums ( The Belvedere , Albertina , Leopold , MAK , just to name a few ) so it depends on what type of art is your particular focus of interest . With only two days , I would choose carefully . There are palaces in number , but no castles that I am aware of ( although , many sites of significant architectural merit ) . I would also lean in favor of the interiors at Schonbrunn instead of the Hofburg , for the reasons stated above . If you visit the treasury , try not to drool on the 3,000 karat unction vessel on display . http://www.internetstones.com/emerald-unguentarium-in-the-imperial-treasury-vienna-2860-carats-schatzkammer.html
