Kapuziner Crypt (Kapuzinergruft), Vienna

4.2
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.

  • It is a must visit and must be done in Vienna. I recommend reading a little bit about the Austria Royal family to understand the context. There are pages that they deal with, and can help to interpret the ornaments and the type of material used in each coffin. So it can be conocernla historical importance of each monarch who lies in this crypt.

  • Where are Emperor Franz Josef and Sissy is buried, made interesting as the Habsburg dynasty from at home and abroad. How to Mexican Emperor or Italian noblewoman, from beginning to end in the history go up until the last dead Habsburg to 1986!

  • 145 members of the Habsburg family - all united. Impressive, thought provoking, peaceful. Keys to the coffins used to be kept in the cupboard at the Hofburg Treasury.  more »
