My group went here for the English tour, but were sad to find that it only runs Wed-Sat (which was not stated on the website at the time I had checked a month or two before). But since we were there, we figured we might as well view the crypts uneducated. It was well worth it. The sarcophagi were amazingly... More

We paid for the full tour with guide and it was very interesting. If you are interested in the history of the Habsburgs and how their dynasty were inter married with other royal families in Europe then this is a must. The sarcophagus are fascinating.

This was my second visit to Vienna and to the crypt. Very somber but fascinating visit with the dead Hapsburgs. Much more personal since the coffins are out in the open. Lots of history here.

In total a 138 Habsburger princes, princesses, emperors and empresses are buried here, well at least in part. The hearts are buried somewhere else. Most coffins are not spectacularly lavishly decorated, but a few stand out and are very lavish. There is very little information given, though. The coffin of Sisi is located in the last room.

We visited the Sisi Museum and the Silberkammer first and our daughter then wanted to see where Sisi was buried. We very much enjoyed visiting the Kapuzinergruft as it is a very dignified and calm attraction - not too overrun with people (bit of a secret tip) and also historically very, very interesting. It's a touch on the spooky side... More

It is a very different way of burial/not-burial. Some caskets are more sophisticated while others can be quite plain. The most fabulously decorated one is the one for Maria Theressia and her husband. Except for the most obvious figures, the scenes engraved on the side are also very impressive. Her son's casket is right in front of it, but very... More

Just along the road from the Albertina museum, sits a rather less than ordinary church. It’s a little plain in decoration but don’t let this fool you, for beyond the facade, and below that chambers you’ll find some of the most spectacular centuries old sarcophagi, the resting places of emperors and empresses, guarded and maintained by the Capuchin friars.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
