The imperial crypt was possible the highlight of our 10 day vacation. Seeing the final resting place of the Habsburgs, possibly the greatest royal family in history, is awe inspiring. There is a once per day English tour, that is not very convenient. Instead, I...More

The Imperial Crypt of the Hapsburg Empire is an interesting sight when visiting Vienna. Located within the Old Town under The Capuchin Church, the Royal Crypt holds the remains of 143 members of Austrian royalty. 12 Emperors in 18 Empresses are intiered here. Emperor Franz...More

We randomly saw this mentioned and decided to pay a visit. It wasn’t very busy and is quite macabre - most of The casks are very ornate and we were really glad we stopped here - very fascinating (I was in Paris the week after...More

It was cool to see all of the sarcophagi of famous rulers and the items (presumably left by visitors) honoring them. I found the Mexican flags commemorating Maximilian I particularly ironic, since that's where he was executed, but that's probably due to my lack of...More

Ok -- many might see this as a basement full of caskets, but what a basement and what caskets! While we didn't get much out of knowing who was buried there, we thoroughly enjoyed the quasi-creepy atmosphere offset by the grandeur of the crypt. It's...More

The place is located in zip code 1010, as most of the attractions. It is very open, clean and lit, however it lacks descriptions in any other language but german. It is amazing to see the evolution from the founders (Emperor Matthias and wife) that...More

I really enjoyed my visit here. The caskets are beautiful in their own macabre way, and it’s exciting to be surrounded by so many historical people. If you don’t know a lot about the background of those interred here, it can be a little confusing...More
