Kapuziner Crypt (Kapuzinergruft), Vienna

#9 of 57 in Historic Sites in Vienna
Architectural Building Church
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.

  • Worth seeing. A guide worth to even the historical background to learn and is only marginally more expensive

  • A very solemn place. The crypt houses the great characters of Austrian history. A lot of emotions in this place.

  • Take 30 to 45 minutes to go around the place. €7 50 per adult I find it a bit expensive. However it is true that the place is a must. The tomb of Empress Marie Thérèse is simply imposing. Sissi and Franz is of humble by comparison. Many stories of affection are present on those of Sissi and Franz.

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.
