The exhibition holds more than 200 paintings of the great masters, including the most valuable works of Lukas Cranach, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Peter Paul Rubens, Anton van Dyck and Diego Velázquez. The Chamber of Art and Wonders (Kunst- und Wunderkammer) at Schloss Ambras The Chamber of Art and Wonders (Kunst- und Wunderkammer) of the Renaissance is an encyclopedic, universal collection, which contains the entire knowledge of the time. The collection contains not only outstanding works of art such as the Tödlein, but also scientific objects such as the attachment with compass (Aufsatz mit Kompass), objects from distant countries, such as the "Ryukyu bowl" (Ryuku-Schale), rare products of nature, corals, portraits of people who were considered "miracles" such as the hairy man (Haarmensch) and fascinating games as well as unusual musical instruments. The Armories In the Armories, among other things, you will find rare tournament armor, ceremonial armor for courtly feasts, the armor of famous generals and the Turkish Chamber (Türkenkammer) of Ferdinand II, which documents both the fear of the Turks and the enthusiasm for the Orient in the 16th century.
