After visiting the monastery in Heiligenkreuz, our tour took us to this "museum" ... most of us thought that this stop was a waste of our time. The "museum" commemorates a murder/suicide scandal in the Hapsburg Dynasty. I think it was a result of too...More

If you are into the story of the ruling family of Austria, this is a place to go. If not, it's still cool but quick. A beautiful Church in a beautiful area in the Vienna Woods. I'd recommend about 20 minutes for this visit. Skip...More

Well we knew the bones of the story, but the (small) Museum and the associated church really brought it to life. Just a shame that the family felt obliged to demolish the coach house immediately after the murder / suicide. And as for whisking the...More

We definitely would not have known about this tragic love story had it not been for our informative tour package in Grey Line to here, the nearby monastery and the Seegrotte. The drive in the fall was beautiful in itself, but learning how the last...More

We visited this site as part of a tour that also included Heiligenkreuz abbey and the nearby gypsum mine and artificial underground lake. The hunting lodge at Mayerling is the site of the (apparent) double suicide of Crown Prince Rudolf, Emperor Francis Joseph's only son,...More

We had a private tour of this place after the nearby Monastery. We learned of the tragedy of Prince Rudolph. A solemn but lovely visit.

Given the sad history of this place it is really beautiful and solemnly peaceful, take your time and don't rush this place and it will be worth the visit. We have made the mistake of visiting Mayerling as part of an organised tour, which didn't...More

This is the place where a tragedy took place long time ago, in January 1889 when Crown Prince Rudolf had commit ed a suicide together with his mistress Maria Vetsera. Though so much water has flown under the bridge still there are many versions of...More

Interesting historical place to visit in Lower Austria. Has a museum which contains loads of information about Crown Prince Rudolph. Entry ticket costs 7 euros but its worth. Its interesting to know that most of my Austrian friends have never been to this place or...More

There is not much of the old hunting lodge left and what remains has been converted into a convent. However, it played an important part in the history of the Austrian empire as Rudolf and his mistress died there - a suicide pact. There is...More
