  • 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

  • Many coffins in these halls are laid out. The atmosphere was a bit to the Zoo for me because you admired but the coffins (with contents), more or less, makes some photos and Selfies and further moves. A bit bizarre and morbid. Many of the names are not known even if the relationships are briefly described. Therefore should be helped to in advance but a little history to know it so opposite stands the who.

  • I really liked this place - just wild! Funerary art beyond compare. But tourists have to remember to keep silent and respectful. It is a burial place after all.
  • Interesting, free with Vienna Pass, short (~1hr). In the heart of the Vienna tourist and shopping zone this fascinating look at the coffin/tombs of Austrian royalty is a must see. Informational placards and paperwork is all in German.
  • Really good. Very interesting and amazing craftsmanship. Cheap admission and we'll worth a visit. Only issue is that the descriptions on the tombs are only in German, but this is a tiny problem of an otherwise great visit
  • Really expensive entry fee of €5.5 considering that the visit is very short. The massive sepulture of Maria-Theresa is impressive.
  • Some might consider this a slightly macabre attraction but I was really glad we chose to visit after reading about it online. If you were walking past and didn't know what this was it's fairly unlikely you would venture inside. From the exterior it looks like some sort of small church with a fairly unassuming facade given what lies within. Once inside it becomes apparent that it is indeed a grand affair. The Imperial Crypt houses the sarcophogi of over 100 members of the House of Hapsburg, and these are some of the most spectacular entombments you are likely to see without venturing into a pyramid! The atmosphere is quiet and sombre, as you would expect from what is essentially the final resting place of members of a royal dynasty. The craftsmanship and sheer scale of some of the elaborate coffins housed within is truly spectacular and leaves you in no doubt as to the importance of the people encased within. If you do not speak German you may be a little disappointed that most of the descriptive plaques are not translated into other languages, but in reality you do not need to understand the writings to appreciate what the Kaisergruft has to offer.
