The Crypt is quite intresting but wouldn't consider it a must see. Still some of the tombs are really impressive. It can be visited in less than half an hour and there are also guided tours.

The Imperial Crypt offers a fascinating glimpse into the past as one walks among the final resting place of so many of the royal fami. The crypts themselves vary from highly ornate to understated as times changed. Filled with history.
