  • This is a really interesting place, fullof super-ornamented coffins, each one telling a stroy. Sculptures are beatiful and Maria Theresia tumb is really over the top ornate. Certainly a must see for h...  more »
  • Include for Vienna and must be seen if you are a fan of Sissi and the Habsburgs... It's probably a cemetery but with background

  • The Kaisergruft sounds more dark and deathlike than it actually is. The coffins are really beautiful and the tour quite historical. The most interesting part is that they seperated the intestines (especially the heart) and the skeleton. You can't see any of the skeletons or organs thought. Nice to see but probably more interesting for undertakers or historians.
  • I was rather disappointed with this place. Expect to see hundreds of coffins (1 was really huge taking like half room) and one skull on a coffin. That is pretty much about it. Unless you are a huge history lover, I would not recommend you to visit this place.
  • This was by far one of my favorite places in Vienna The sepulcres were just incredible - you definitely get the sense of majesty and luxury.
  • Most amazing coffins you will ever see! Beautiful decorations as well as some pretty creepy skulls and stuff. Very small but interesting museum.
  • I love this place for all the history. Might be a bit creepy to others

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
