Definitely mausoleum looks much more prestigious from outside than inside, but I still find it worth visiting. Simple white walls allow to pay a special attention to the beautiful baroque parts of interior - especially amazing ceiling's paintings. I also loved the idea of putting...More

I was surprised at the number of 4 and 5 Point reviews and decided to look myself. Alas, the style is to be seen in dozens of buildings in Graz alone. The fact that an Emperor is buried there does not make in more interesting...More

I came here because I'd been to the imperial mausoleum in Vienna last year and wanted to complete the set of Austrian royal tombs. The mausoleum is surprisingly large for just one Emperor, with plenty of ornate shrines upstairs and the tomb downstairs. You can...More

There was no guided tour when we were there, but it was beautiful. Much more than I expected to see in a Mausoleum. Make sure to hang on to the handrail going down the steps. Don't forget to look up. Everything is decorated.
