Kapuziner Crypt (Kapuzinergruft), Vienna

(4.2/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Stand close enough to touch the remains of Austrian royalty at Kapuziner Crypt (Kapuzinergruft)--the final resting place of Habsburgs. The burial chamber beneath the Capuchin church and monastery has been the place of entombment for this royal family since 1633. It houses the bones of 145 Habsburgs, including 12 emperors and 18 empresses. Walk down the well-lit and airy chambers with bare walls. See how 107 metal sarcophagi range in style from puritan plain to exuberant Rococo. Enter the Maria-Theresia-Gruft--a domed chamber dominated by a huge, elaborate sarcophagus for the empress and her husband. Note how the plain coffin of Emperor Joseph II stands in remarkable contrast to that of his parents.

  • Fascinating the elaborate coffins and the history to do so. Very accurately described and interesting details of the buried people.

  • This crypt could really become a staple of Vienna for the fan history, curious tourists to the country that they visit or even everyone who appreciate beautiful objects or places of recueillements.
