Basically a basement with graves, if you are not Austrian and have a sentimental connection to those who are buried there you can skip it

The place definitely worth a visit. The crypt isn't that scary, well illuminated and organized, so even our 6 y.o. kid was impressed. Even if you aren't into Habsburgs' history, the gloomy beauty of funeral metal artwork will impress you. The flowers, skulls and human...More

We love visiting sites such as Crypts, but if you’ve ever visited them in cities like Paris, Krakow, Rome etc, this is not the same. There are just coffins lined up in rows in rooms and can be seen in about 5 min. It’s not...More

Amazing crypt in the center of Vienna where all of the past Hapsburg dynasty members are located. "Must see" stop of every tour. Amazing sarcophagus masterpieces await you inside.

Well preserved tombs for the royal family but tbh there is not enough English signs and introduction to fully understand the history.

This was possibly the most interesting attraction we visited on our trip. Situated below the Kapuzin church, not far from the Hofburg, it is the burial place of the Hapsburgs for several centuries. We found it fascinating.

The crypt is interesting for historical reasons as well as seeing the contrast between the entombment's of different European Royal dynasties; the Habsburgs of Austria compared to the Bourbons of France and the Romanovs of Russia (Assuming those have been or will be visited).

I visited on a dark,cold,rainy,late October day. It was perfect for visiting what is essentially an underground,indoor cemetery for a large portion of the Austrian branch of the Habsburg dynasty. The tombs start plain and simple in the 1400s (the first part of th crypt),become...More

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
