Kapuziner Crypt (Kapuzinergruft), Vienna
(4.2/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • The entrance of the Church is not far from the Cathedral. Beware, there is work on the façade, but the crypt is still open. Some coffins are impressive. We end the visit on the last Habsburg buried with a must-see on the grave of Sissi, François Joseph, and Rodolphe (the more flowery). You can also see the coffin of Marie-Louise (wife of Napoleon), well also flourished. See also the small Mexican sombreros on the coffin of Maximilian (small note of relaxation in this rather austere atmosphere anyway). Attention, this remains an impressive tour for young children, it is best to well support them before and during the visit.

  • This remarkable tomb was founded in 1619, since this time have been surrounded by all members of the House of Habsburg in this burial place to rest. The Sakrophag of Maria Theresia and her husband Stefan v. Lorraine is particularly magnificent. The last emperor was buried in 1916 (Franz Joseph I) there. 1989 Zita, the last Empress of Habsburg came to their final rest. Above all, the monks of the Capuchin monastery wake!
